Dutch Metallers God Dethroned have recently unleashed their new album, Illuminati, via Metal Blade Records and are pleased to see it entering various international sales charts, marking the highest rankings in the band’s history:

Germany: #23
Belgium (Flanders): #173
Belgium (Wallonia) #186
USA (Billboard Current Hard Music Chart): #23
USA (Billboard Top New Artist Chart): #39
Canada (Hard Music Charts): #69

God Dethroned guitarist/vocalist Henri Sattler checked in while out on the road across Europe with the following comment: “With God Dethroned we never shy away from challenges or taking risks when we write songs for a new album. We always try to re-invent ourselves and there was no exception to that rule this time. We knew we made some bold moves in the songwriting process for “Illuminati” and we didn’t know if it would be appreciated by our fans, but here we are, reaching number 23 in the official German album charts, entering the Billboard Charts in US and Hard Music Charts in Canada. Thanx to all our fans for their never-ending support. Without you we would be lost. Looking forward to see you on the road somewhere in time this year!
