GOD DETHRONED will reunite on board 70000TONS OF METAL

July 31st, 2014

After their farewell performance on board 70000TONS OF METAL in January 2012 we are proud to announce the band’s return!

Exactly 3 years later, they are scheduled to return to the stage more aggressive then ever! It will all begin with 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, sailing to Jamaica in January 2015.

GOD DETHRONED front man, Henri Sattler, explains:

“In early 2011, I was facing two options: one was to announce a break, and the other option was to quit the band. I definitely needed time away from it all, and having a break wasn’t reassuring enough to know if I would be able to recharge the batteries for another go.”

“Oddly enough it was at the funeral of the man who discovered us in the first place that I came to realize the story wasn’t finished yet. So here we go again. Don’t think you will be able to see us playing every club for weekends on end. We will only play a small selection of shows and this won’t happen before 2015. Besides that, the core of the band will consist of only Michiel and myself. We’ll have some cool guest musicians lined up, though, to make sure we’ll give you the best performance possible.

Last but not least, our first shows will be where we played our last ones three years ago. Our rebirth will happen on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2015. See you on board!”

70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise has already confirmed: Alestorm, Annihilator, Apocalyptica, Arch Enemy, Behemoth, Blind Guardian, Cannibal Corpse, Chimaira, D.A.D., Ensiferum, Equilibrium, God Dethroned, Grave Digger, Heathen, In Extremo, Kataklysm, Korpiklaani, Lake Of Tears, Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock, Napalm Death, Origin, Primal Fear, Tank, Therion, Threshold, Triosphere and Xentrix, with 33 more to come!

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, will sail Thursday, January 22, 2015 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Liberty Of The Seas” from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale near Miami, FL and will not return to the real world until Monday, January 26, 2015

Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$333 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages, all meals in the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and even 24 room service!

GOD DETHRONED recap 2011 and look forward to the last four shows in the band’s history

December 13th, 2011

Just four more shows and that’s it for GOD DETHRONED. Guitarist Danny Tunker gives us a look inside the heart and soul of GOD DETHRONED!

“God Dethroned, the final year. 2011. When the decision was made to do it this way Michiel, Henk and I supported Henri’s decision, of course, but it would be a lie to say we were happy about it. His reasons for doing it are -of course- his own and he looks to other horizons after playing with God Dethroned for 20+ years. He is building his own guitars, speakers and amps and going for that with the same intensity as he has played with God Dethroned for all those years.

Originally, we would only do about 4 gigs as a ‘farewell tour’, though offers came in all the time. We did book some extra shows, one each in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and one show in Leewarden, Holland. Eindhoven Metal Meeting was going to be the final one (on December, 17th) and we have honored that commitment for all offers that came, safe one, which was just too good to turn down. I’m referring to 70,000 tons of metal of course. Any band would love to play that cruise. Play two shows on a cruise-ship with some of your favorite bands and 2000 fans? Forget it! So December, 17th is going to be the final show for God Dethroned on solid ground. The other 2 shows will be on a ship in the ocean.

The other shows we did this year were Summer Breeze 2011, which was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had with this band and Motocultor in France the day after. Hanging out with Tyr and Moonsorrow on a nightliner and party? Check. Can’t believe that was in August already.

And now, it’s November. And we only have 4 more shows to go. The first one on December, 10th in Groningen was added about 2 months ago when the protest from fans that we wouldn’t play our unofficial ‘hometown’ became so overwhelming that we just gave in. It turned into a day full of bands where, as fate would have it, Michiel and I will be pulling double-duty as Prostitute Disfigurement will be playing, too.

Then it’s Eindhoven Metal Meeting. Then Christmas, New Year and a cruise. Can’t believe this will be the end of it, but it sure has been fun. It probably won’t hit me for some time, but once we play the final notes for ‘Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross’ in Eindhoven and somewhere on the Atlantic, it probably will.

Thanks to the fans, bands, bookers and the lovely people at Metal Blade for all the support! Hope you all come out one last time to party with us.”

TANKARD’s 30th Birthday & GOD DETHRONED’s Farewell

August 13th, 2011

While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has left Göteborg and is now sailing through the Skagerak their scouting party in Germany could not pass by Frankfurt am Main without picking up a huge TANKARD of beer that will celebrate it’s 30th birthday on board next year. Then they went onwards to The Netherlands to get GOD DETHRONED who will play one of their very last shows on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2012.

 

Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!

 

So far 17 out of a total of 40 bands on board are known:

 

AMORPHIS

CORONER

DARK FUNERAL

ELUVEITIE

GOD DETHRONED

GRAVE DIGGER

HAMMERFALL

IN EXTREMO

MOONSORROW

MY DYING BRIDE

NIGHTWISH

PESTILENCE

SAMAEL

STRATOVARIUS

TANKARD

THERION

TRISTANIA

 

70000TONS OF METAL will sail Monday, January 23, 2012 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to George Town, Cayman Islands and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 27, 2012.

 

Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$289 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages, all meals at the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and even 24 room service!

 

What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done! Check out http://www.70000tons.com/ for more information and book your cabin NOW!

GOD DETHRONED calls it quits!

February 17th, 2011
GOD DETHRONED - "Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross"

GOD DETHRONED - "Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross"

Read the statement of GOD DETHRONED mainman Henri Sattler: “For a Nihilist, nothing is at least something. 2011 is GOD DETHRONED’s final year in existence.

We could have spent another year in a tour bus because the amount of offers was endless, but I just don’t feel like touring anymore. People told me to take a break for a year or maybe two, but as I’m an “all, or nothing at all” type of person, I decided to call it quits. Not immediately, but in December of this year we will definitely play our last show. That’s gonna be at the Eindhoven Metal Meeting in Holland. I’m very proud of what we achieved with the band, but the time has come for new challenges. I would like to thank all of our fans for their support for all these years.” Cheers, Henri

On behalf of GOD DETHRONED

Confirmed GOD DETHRONED live shows:

02/07/11 – NL – Nijmegen – Fortarock

20/08/11 – DE – Dinkelsbühl – Summer Breeze Festival (final German show)

GOD DETHRONED to premiere “Storm Of Steel”

November 9th, 2010
GOD DETHRONED - "Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross"

GOD DETHRONED - "Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross"

Mighty Dutch death metallers GOD DETHRONED have announced that Bravewords.com will be premiering the second track from Under the Sign of the Iron Cross, Storm Of Steel! The song perpetuates Henri Sattler’s lyrical WWI theme and describes what it was like to go over the trench and be a part of a charge in the war of attrition style warfare for which WWI was best known. Musically, the song is just as much of a barrage of steel and iron to aurally represent the machine gun and artillery fire experience! Listen to Storm Of Steel now at Bravewords.com HERE!

Comments singer/guitarist Henri Sattler on the title track: “The 1905 Schlieffen Plan made by the Prussian Count von Schlieffen after England signed the previous Entente Cordiale in 1904 with France. The plan was based on a battle between Hannibal and the Roman army in 216 B.C. that was later modified and eventually failed when put into practice. It remains uncertain if the changes to the Schlieffen Plan or the plan itself was the reason for not being successful.”
