So God dethroned has switch genres on here a couple of times, now its listed part of there career as just thrash? ive listened to all of there albums but the newest Passiondale. they seem to change throughout there years from heavily melodic, straight forward and brutal, and black death, to more death metalcoresh, but thrash with no death...? whats everyone else thing aboot this?

Yes, I'm with you on this I do think the band's first disc is the least interesting, though. I much prefer their last two albums over their whole discography, but really, tracks like "Serpent King" are equally as killer from their midperiod work!

Well, it's funny you bring this up because just recently I was about to go through the band's entire history and update members, styles, etc., but got pre-occupied doing other things instead. I really don't think there's any "core" anywhere in the band's work, and that it's primarily a mix of thrash and death. Probably a spot of "blackened" can be thrown in for The Grand Grimoire. I'm undecided about putting "medodic death" anywhere, because really, the term doesn't reflect their style properly compared to other melodic death bands, except maybe a comparison to Hypocrisy's take on it. I'll think about it some more and get on correcting the band's history this week

I like them a lot and don't care for the "genre-thing", but I wouldn't call them thrash.
The Grand Grimoire is more black then spotted black imo but one thing is for sure: I don't give a damn how you call it, if it's good it's good and it is!

Yeah, for sure their main genre is death related And I am not so much a genre person myself, there's just good and bad music, that's all! But genres of course are great for things like suggestions, and for awards And I feel that thrash should stay as part of the band's description, because it's the thrash feel of Henri's riffs that make the band interesting.

Speaking of The Grand Grimoire, it seems I've only had mp3s of it all these years, so I've ordered that one up to complete my post 1996 collection . Glad to see some conversation about this band again, I also was getting the feeling they'd been looked over lately on MS.

I agree for the first part!

i feel a metalcoe influance in the Toxic Touch with the album intro doing strong brake downs and the song hating life, its not though out the whole album but comes in somewhat strong when it does.
Grand Grimoire is mostly what im talking when saying black death/blackened death along with moments on other albums
i feel a very strong melodic death in them through out Bloody Blasphemy and Toxic Touch along with alot of The Lair Of The White Worm
There of course death i dont think anyone would say not. theyve always been and im beting probalby always will be.
The main point im thinking is theyve never been "just Thrash" maybe death thrash (i wouldnt say so, death but not thrashy enough for death thrash, but thats up for debate)

Yes, I recall now back when The Toxic Touch was released, a lot of the criticism around it pointed at a 'core' feel to it, and also with the lyrical subjects, such as the song you point out, "Hating Life." I still stand that there is no metalcore in the cd, or breakdowns, but if you hear them, okay I can see why you hear it, but I don't agree... if that makes sense?

And I guess I didn't answer your main question initially, regarding God Dethroned being only Thrash. Where do you see it? I'm the one who recently edited the band's style page, and that was done only to reflect the band's split between 1993 and 1996, not to change the genres. It's currently, as it has been since at least 2006 here on MS (no logs before then), Death and Thrash simultaneously It's worth considering a listing of Melodic Death in there for the releases you mention, but I don't think it's that important in the end, since the band has always had a mixture of styles, so there will be no proper categorization that expresses everything you find in an album.

Yeah I figured you'd notice it soon enough! Anyway, my review for the latest album will be up this week. I'm really looking forward to their live set the first week of April when they come through for not one but 2 dates
