Henri Sattler (born 1971) is a Dutch heavy metal singer and founder and vocalist/guitarist of God Dethroned.[2] He uses the alias 'The Serpent King'.[citation needed].

Due to problems with the other band members and the record company, Sattler decided to split the band. He then formed Ministry of Terror, a thrash metal band, and released the Fall of Life album with them in 1994. After a European tour Sattler left the band and re-formed God Dethroned.[2] With new band members the new God Dethroned recorded The Grand Grimoire and signed a deal with Metal Blade.[2] Many tours followed in Europe, the United States and Japan with death metal and black metal acts including Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Immortal, and Marduk.

His primary guitar is a custom made BC Rich Mockingbird that is tan with Seymour Duncan pickups and a Floyd Rose tremolo. In his early days, he played a BC Rich Warlock he modified himself[citation needed].
