Belgium’s leading black metal force ENTHRONED returns with a new studio album entitled “Sovereigns”. The follow-up to 2012′s critically acclaimed “Obsidium” is scheduled for an April 15 release via Agonia Records.

“Sovereigns” drifts from sonic blast beats to oppressive slower parts, melds together aggressive shredding with forceful riffs, and blends satanic whispers with Nornagest‘s trademark vocals. On the whole, band’s 10th album feels coherent and offers first-rate black metal. The album introduces a new drummer, Menthor, in the place of Garghuf and a new rhythm guitarist ZarZax.

“Sovereigns” was recorded and mixed in ENTHRONED‘s own studio, Blackout Multimedia. The album will be available in: digipack CD, black vinyl, bone-white vinyl with green splatter limited to 100 hand-numbered copies and exclusive box CD limited to 333 hand-numbered copies (including the new album released in exclusive jewel-case edition, embroidered patch (8 cm x 10 cm), flag (42 cm x 59.4 cm) and a lighter with band’s logo).

“Sovereigns” track listing:

01. Anteloquium
02. Sine Qua Non
03. Of Feathers And Flames
04. Lamp Of Invisible Lights
05. Of Shrines And Sovereigns
06. The Edge Of Agony

Terrorizer magazine conducted an interview with ANTHRAX singer Joey Belladonna and guitarist Scott Ian on August 11 at the Bloodstock Open Air festival at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom. You can now watch the first part of the chat below.

Guitarist Jon Donais (SHADOWS FALL) has been touring with ANTHRAX since Rob Caggiano‘s departure in January and will continue to play with ANTHRAX for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas for the “Metal Hammer” radio show on TeamRock Radio, ANTHRAX‘s founding rhythm guitarist Scott Ian stated about the band’s current second-guitarist situation: “Jon‘s been with us since February, and I think I can safely say he’s passed the audition… [laughs]. I know we haven’t said anything official yet, but in my mind, he’s the guy. I’m sure some type of official announcement… because in this world, people apparently need that kind of information so they can sleep well at night. But as far as I’m concerned, Jon is the guitar player in ANTHRAX.”

Donais previously stated about playing with ANTHRAX: “I grew up on ANTHRAX, they’re the thrash scene, they’re one of the ‘Big Four,’ I’d be crazy to not want to play with them. Initially, Rob called and told me he was leaving the band, and asked if I’d be interested in filling in. Then Scott called me and everything fell into place.”

ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante is recovering from surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. He is expected to rejoin his bandmates on the road on September 13 in San Bernardino, California.

ANTHRAX‘s current touring lineup includes former TESTAMENT/SLAYER and current ANIMETAL USA drummer Jon Dette.

Dette previously filled in for Benante on ANTHRAX‘s European tour last fall as the support act for MOTÖRHEAD and Australia’s Soundwave Festival in February/March.

Fan-filmed video footage of ANTHRAX‘s first-ever concert in Israel, which took place on August 13 at Barby Club in Tel Aviv, can be seen below.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, ANTHRAX‘s founding rhythm guitarist Scott Ian — who was born 49 years ago to a Jewish family in the Bayside section of the New York City borough of Queens — said: “I didn’t really have much of a Jewish upbringing; it didn’t play a prominent role in our house. My grandparents were quite Orthodox, but my parents and I weren’t. I learned Hebrew phonetically for my bar mitzva, read my seven minutes, and then we had a party. I think I did it more to please my grandfather than anything else.”

Regarding why he decided to cut off his last name in favor of his middle name (Ian‘s full name is Scott Ian Rosenfeld), the guitarist said: “Scott Ian Rosenfeld was just too long — it didn’t look good on posters when I started playing professionally, and Scott Ian did, so I just used that. It had nothing to do with it sounding too Jewish. I still used Rosenfeld for the songwriting credits, and for years people would come up to me and ask me who that other guy was that writes songs for you.”
