Biography

Hecate Enthroned are a Melodic Black Metal band from North Wales. The band formed in 1993 under the name Daemonum by singer Jon and guitarist Nigel. After a few practices and recording a demo, vocalist Jon left the band after taking up an offer to join Cradle of Filth as their bassist. However during which time Jon was also heavily involved in the production of Dusk… and her embrace. A year or so later, Jon rejoined and they changed their name to Hecate Enthroned, this time playing a more melodic black metal style. In 1995 they recorded their demo “Ode for a Haunted Wood”, which got the attention of the British label Blackend Records. Blackend had it re-mastered under the title Under Promethean Shores (Unscriptured Waters) in 1996.

1997 saw the release of their first full-length album, The Slaughter of Innocence (A Requiem for the Mighty), as well as subsequent tours with bands like Dark Funeral, Enthroned, Sigh and Usurper. Through this release, some opinioned the band were “copying” fellow countrymen Cradle of Filth’s sound, mainly in Jon’s vocal approach, though upon listening both bands’ sounds were quite different; Hecate Enthroned’s being more guitar influenced and straight-forward in terms of arrangement versus Cradle of Filth’s keyboard-heavy symphonic madness, plus the lyrical structures were different (CoF’s erotic vampirism versus HE’s overt Satanism).
