Passiondale (street date 27 April, 2009 - Metal Blade)

#29 - GOD DETHRONED - Passiondale (Metal Blade)

Says scribe Chris Tighe: "God Dethroned have managed to piece together their masterwork. Starting out life as a death metal band with melodic intent and recently adding progressive elements to their sound, God Dethroned have finally assimilated both approaches into one coherent, fetching whole. While in and of itself it may not be surprising that the unit has been able to combine the elements, it is eye-brow raising that they were able to do so within the framework of a concept record."
