Hecate Enthroned emerged as one of the most intense bands to come out of the Black Death Metal scene. Dedicated to delivering their own brand of truly evil metal with little regard to politics or the trends of popular demand.
In 1995, The now legendary demo ‘AN ODE FOR A HAUNTED WOOD’ was recorded in The Academy Studios – Yorkshire under producer Mags and was quickly spread throughout the burgeoning underground scene. This release saw the start of the blackened years and the video ‘AN ODE FOR A HAUNTED WOOD’ accompanied the release on MTV being one of the first Extreme Black Metal bands to be featured on this channel.
Fast forward 22 years and 5 albums later, a few line-up changes and with their new vocalist Joe Stamps are still packing shows and delivering brutal sets, such as an appearance on London’s Incineration Festival 2016, which cemented the band as the premier UK Black Metal act delivering high paced intensity and quality. With a new album waiting release in the studio and more festivals and tours in the offering alongside collaborations with Sarah Jezebel Deva (ex-Cradle of Filth female vocalist), fans of true metal have a lot to look forward to.
