God Dethroned were a blackened death metal band. God Dethroned was formed in 1990 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. 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.
