Deluxe double vinyl LP pressing. Defending The Throne Of Evil was the fourth studio album by the Norwegian Black Metal band Carpathian Forest. The sonority of Defending The Throne Of Evil is largely different from other Carpathian Forest albums, being their more melodic one so far; relying heavily on symphonic interludes, saxophones and synthesizers, it is loosely reminiscent of symphonic Black Metal. Carpathian Forest was formed by Nattefrost and Nordavind in 1990, initially under the name Enthrone. In 1992, Enthrone changed it's name to Carpathian Forest. The band then released the albums Black Shining Leather (1998), Strange Old Brew (2000) and Morbid Fascination Of Death (2001) before starting work on Defending The Throne Of Evil.
