There's more to Belgium than great beer and mouth-watering chocolate -- a lot more -- and some of it is a great deal scarier than the price of a pilsner. Legendary black metal horde Enthroned also rose from the soil of this peaceful nation and are now returning to North America to reap what they have sown.

With a nine-year absence from our shores to break and a vicious new album to promote, the sinister black metallers have a hell of a lot to prove, and legions of ravenous fans awaiting their return. They're even bringing along black/thrash metal hessians Destroyer 666 to fuel the flames. The U.S./Canadian leg of the Pentagrammaton World Tour 2010 will begin in Brooklyn, N.Y. at Europa and decimate nearly two dozen cities before ending its cross-country death march at the Hostile City Deathfest in Philadelphia on Aug. 29. 'Pentagrammaton,' Enthroned's ninth studio offering, was released earlier this year via Regain Records.
