DT: Tell us about your "TOWARDS THE SKULLTHRONE OF SATAN" (Blackened 1997).

DT: Do you like Swedish Death Metal?.

Sabathan: There's one a while ago, but Belgium is more reputated for Pedophiliac which is a kind of serial killers.
DT: Tell me about your "THE APOCALYPSE MANIFESTO" (Blackened1999), is your best production?.
Sabathan: Is really not our best production, is the weakest album of ENTHRONED...and the poorer one in matter of composition....
"Carnage in Worlds Beyond" is far far better and much more mature.
DT: How did the idea of "ARMOURED BESTIAL HELL" (Blackened 2001).
Sabathan: The same than for "The Apocalypse Manifesto" but with a better sound production.
Your future plans?.

DT: Do you consider "GOATLUST" 7" like a cult gem? (Painkiller Records 2003).
Sabathan: Is just a 7"EP that we wanted to release...a kind of cult Gem yes.
DT: "CARNAGE IN WORLDS BEYOND" is your most brutal gem?.
Sabathan: The most accomplished album of the band...of course after the last one "Xes Haereticum" which is better again.
DT: Your last comment for DT. Readers… where can they find your stuff?
Sabathan: Come on to support us on the South American tour in September 2004....we hope to see you all guys...take care.
