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).

01. Anteloquium
02. Sine Qua Non
03. Of Feathers And Flames

The following press release was also issued:

“Tracks 1 through 4 are taken from The Ancient Gate demo, tracks 5 through 9 are from the Promo 1992 demo, tracks 10 through 13 are previously unreleased rehearsal tracks– and as a very special addition to this compilation, the band has also recorded the previously unreleased track ‘Genesis,’ which was written in 1992. ‘Genesis’ was recorded at IF Studios (IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED, etc.) by producer Robert Laghi. All tracks were mastered at Fascination Street Studio (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, ENSLAVED, etc.), and the re-mastering of the demo tracks was done using the original master tapes.

“Besides the historical musical content, this compilation is packed with in-depth information about the history of EVOCATION. A foreword has been written by Anzo Sadoni (Metal Hammer), Björn-Thorsten Jaschinski (Rock Hard & Legacy) and Frank Schenk (Chaos Magazine), and it takes a dive into EVOCATION’s history from their start in 1991 through their reunion in 2005 and the release of the band’s critically acclaimed third studio album, Apocalyptic. Guitarist Marko Palmén comments on every song and gives a detailed view into the writing process of the demos. In addition to this information, the compilation also includes band photos, concert flyers, and other visual content from the years 1991 to 1993, plus a balanced layout designed by Xaay (NILE, BEHEMOTH, etc.).”
