hard to figure out all the riffs."

Død, a MORBID ANGEL lifer, also mentions: "One of the first death metal gigs I went to was Morbid Angel in 1995. Immortal was support and Hellhammer did the drums!"

Blood Red Throne Issues Inferno Festival Recap

Norwegian death metal band Blood Red Throne issued the following update about performing at Norway's Inferno Festival last week:

"First day of Inferno and we just had to set the standard. It was 7 years since the last time we played here and we were ready to unleash hell. Besides a crappy sound check and also not expecting too many people, we were met by an almost overcrowded venue screaming for Blood Red Throne. This was such an inspiration and we hit it off from the very beginning. The playing was great, the sound was great and the audience made mosh pits, stage dived and shouted for more. The feedback was totally overwhelming during and after the show and we had a great time indeed!"

Blood Red Throne's upcoming new album, "Souls of Damnation" is due to be released by Earache Records on June 1st in Europe and June 30th in the USA. The full track listing for the album is as follows:

Blood Red Throne Announce New Album "Come Death"

Norwegian death metallers BLOOD RED THRONE have set "Come Death" as the title of their new album, due later in the year via Earache Records. The CD was recorded at Dub Studios in Norway and was mixed by Valle Adzic.

Mastering duties were handled by Dragan T. According to a press release, the album contains nine songs of BLOOD RED THRONE's unique blend of groovy, aggressive and technical death metal. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Come Death", "Taste of God", "Rebirth in Blood", "Slaying the Lamb" and "Deranged Assassin".

BLOOD RED THRONE's fourth studio album will be the group's first to feature new members Anders Haave (drums) and Vald (vocals).

"This time, we aim for a more classic death metal sound, ala GORGUTS 'Considered Dead' / SUFFOCATION 'Despise the Sun' kind of sound," the ban previously said. "We have grown tired with the over-produced and fully triggered drum kits that so many bands use today, besides we have taken slightly new direction with our music and the analog and dynamic sound fits the music better. We have also chosen a different approach to the recording process of the instruments."

BLOOD RED THRONE is in the process of booking gigs in support of the upcoming album, with three festival appearances already confirmed. More information will be made available soon.

Blood Red Throne To Release New Album In June

Norwegian death metallers BLOOD RED THRONE have completed work on their new album, due on June 25 via Earache Records.

Tchort of BLOOD RED THRONE states: "Yet another tough birth is over and the BLOOD RED THRONE crew is proud to announce its newest album is born! People familiar with the band and its past know the term 'The BRT curse,' and it struck us on several occasion this time as well. In the past it broke down our transportation in the middle of nowhere, killed our vocalist (whom we managed to resurrect with a little love and caring (read: mouth-to-mouth. We won't reveal who was the (un)lucky caretaker), a tree that bitchslapped a couple of our members while surfing the roof of the tour bus (while driving) inside the city of London (some might say that it was a light version of the curse as the bridge missed them!), a drummer who had to be replaced as he disappeared while recording the drums for one of our albums ('Spinal Tap', anyone?) and the story goes on. However, the fact remains that we are proud of the new album and we are proud to show the capacity of our two new members caught on tape for the first time. This album (more details soon to come) represents the essence of BLOOD RED THRONE. Groove, aggression, catchiness, melody and technique. In a perfect BRT blend! We are looking forward to meet all of you on the road again soon!" More...
