Enthroned (1993-present) is a Black Metal band from Belgium.
t the end of 1993 vocalist and bassist Lord Sabathan and his drumming minion sidekick Cernunnos emerged from Morbid Death (the group) to create their own dungeon with guitarist Tsebaoth (ex-Slanesh) under the name Enthroned. They made their debut with a demo plus a shared EP with Ancient Rites which built them a platform with 'Osmose' to release their debut proper Prophecies Of Pagan Fire (1995). Things were not well with the act and events transpired that almost finished them off including the replacement of Tsebaoth with Nebiros, the addition of Nornagest on guitar and the suicide ofCernunnos in the spring of 1997. After the rushed, but much improved Toward The Skullthrone Of Satan (1997) set with Da Cordoen on drums, a tribute to Cernunnos came out in the form of Regie Sathanas (1998) with Namroth Blackthorn now as the permanent replacement for the aforementioned dead member. The Apocalypse Manifesto (1999) followed shortly later, with Armoured Bestial Hell (2001) after it. Carnage In Worlds Beyond (2003) would feature a membership change with Alsvid taking over drums.
In 2005, the band released their first official live album, Black Goat Ritual, recorded during their tour of Brazil. This same year, they parted ways with longtime vocalist Sabathan; Nornagest took over the vocals, while Phorgath joined the band on bass.

In June 2007, Enthroned recorded their seventh album Tetra Karcist, seeing the return of old drummer Alsvid for the studio sessions.
Ahephahim joined as the new official drummer in June 2007 and Enthroned signed with 'Regain Records' in January 2008. At this time, some members of the band opened a recording studio, Blackout Multimedia. But soon after, Ahephaim and Nguaroth left the band because they were busy with other projects and could not offer the time needed to the act and were replaced by ex-Gorgoroth drummer Garghuf. Nerath Daemon took back the position he left five years ago in Enthroned, but now under the name to Neraath. Enthroned's eight album, Pentagrammaton, was released on 22 March 2010. Since then, Nornagest was forced to give up playing guitar in live performances, due to chronic tendinitis in his wrist, and became the band's frontman. Former members Lord Sabathan and Nguaroth re-joined the band for a one-off live performance in 2010 as an act of reconciliation.
Obsidium and Sovereigns followed in 2012 and 2014 respectively.
