Regie Sathanas

Metal Blade/Blackend

Regie Sathanas is a tribute, of sorts, to former Enthroned member Cernunnos, who committed suicide in 1997. The seven-song record is the most compact Enthroned release to date, the blackened horde breathlessly thrashing its way through a melodic black metal that’s high on ambient speed and cyclic riff patterns. But, alas, Enthroned lacks much clout in the uniqueness department, even going so far as to facelessly cover the much-tapped Sodom and their proto-black metal anthem “The Conqueror” — and, for the most ardent black metal enthusiasts, they wouldn’t have it any other way.
