God Dethroned are a blackened death metal band. God Dethroned was formed in 1991 in the Netherlands by lead singer Henri Sattler. After one demo, they released their debut album, The Christhunt (1992), on a tiny German label.
Due to problems with the other band members and the record company, Henri decided to split the band in 1993. He then formed Ministry Of Terror, a thrash metal band, and released Fall of Life with them in 1994. After a European tour Henri left the band and re-formed God Dethroned in 1996.
