God Dethroned will be assaulting North America for the first time since 2007 on the headlining War Propaganda World Tour 2009 in support of their newest album, Passiondale. Henri Sattler and co. will embark on the coast to coast campaign starting on September 30th. Joining the march will be Abigail Williams, Augury and label mates, Woe Of Tyrants! The tour is being sponsored by MetalSucks.net, SMNnews.com and MetalInjection.net. MetalSucks and SMNnews will be giving away some tickets to shows and MetalInjection will be posting video updates from God Dethroned as they tour across the US. Stay tuned for details as they become available.
Henri Sattler comments on the tour: â€œOur “Storming the Balkans” tour which we did about a month ago was a test. A test to see if our new band members, Susan and Mike, would be the right people to have in the band for the long tour we have ahead of us. A new world tour starting on September 3rd in Brazil leading us through Peru, Ecuador and Colombia up to Mexico for the first leg of our “War Propaganda World Tour 2009”. I’m happy to say that they passed the audition well. On the South American shows, we will be accompanied by Elexorien from Holland and in Colombia also Belphegor will make their appearance. The Mexican shows will be with Entombed, Vital Remains, Master and Lividity o.a.
The second leg of the tour starts on September 30th in Tucson, Arizona with Abigail Williams, Augury and label mates Woe of Tyrants and leads us through the States up to Canada. We are really excited to tour the U.S. again and to promote our latest album “Passiondale”, which was released last April. Our last show in the U.S. was in 2007 so we can’t wait to see many of our fans again soon!
On October 21st, we head back to Europe for the third leg of our tour with Endstille and Hollenthon.
As some of you may have noticed already, Roel Sanders does not play drums in God Dethroned anymore. The amount of shows we’re playing is much more than we expected and unfortunately Roel could not combine this with his private life and other activities anymore. It was hard to say goodbye to him, but we remain good friends as always. We have welcomed Michiel “Mike” van der Plicht as his replacement on the drum throne and we’ve already done a number of very successful shows with him. Now we look towards the future with confidence again.
See you somewhere on tour.
God Dethroned has also finished work on a new video for the track Poison Fog, one of the most lyrically intense songs from Passiondale. Keep an eye out for the video to debut sometime this September!

â€œâ€¦nears Emperor levels of soaring blackened metal majesty.â€ Revolver Magazine
“Passiondale is as all out aggressive, confrontational, and downright mean as anything they have ever put outâ€¦this is a straight-up kick to the head that leaves a lot of bruises.” Outburn Magazine
â€œPassiondale is a compact, precise, and immensely rewarding listen, essentially a barbed collection of riffs that youâ€™ll most likely find yourself humming afterward.â€ MetalSucks.net
â€œAfter 18 years and eight albums, Dutch death metallers God Dethroned have managed to piece together their masterwork.â€ Bravewords.com
