Guest review by
This is the second full length of the Black Metal band from Belgium called Enthroned. "Towards the Skullthrone of Satan" was released 2 years after their first "Prophecies of Pagan Fire" from 1995. And the line-up that recorded this CD is not the same as it is today. Sabathan, vocalist/bassist, has always been in the band, but drummer Cernunnos that started the band with Sab took his life just before the recording started. The suicide of Cernunnos was a heavy blow for the band, but they wanted to continue. So Sabathan and the two guitarists Nornagest and Nebiros hired in a session drummer and the recording could begin.

Whilst not as immediately captivating as the band's debut, this album is still a solid black metal offering from Enthroned. No songs really stand out on their own, but I do like the visceral screams and acoustic intro to "When horny Flames begin to Rise" (Bonus points for the mischievous use of "horny" in that song title and the somewhat more experimental "Hertogenwald", which at times reminded me of early Enslaved. The harsh vocals bring the overall quality down a bit with a slightly lackluster delivery, but they thankfully aren't too noticeable.
