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...

Norwegian death metallers BLOOD RED THRONE will enter Jailhouse Studios in Horsens, Denmark in early February to begin recording their fourth studio album, tentatively due this summer via Earache Records. The upcoming CD will be the group's first to feature new members Anders Haave (drums) and Vald (vocals). Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Rebirth in Blood", "Come Death", "No New Beginning" and "Slaying the Lamb".
"This time, we aim for a more classic death metal sound, ala GORGUTS 'Considered Dead' / SUFFOCATION 'Despise the Sun' kind of sound," the band 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 a 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."
Norwegian death metallers Blood Red Throne have been working in Jailhouse studio for the last 2 days on a pre production for the new album due out on Earache early 2007. 70% of the material is written and the band started pre production to test both the studio and the two new members, Anders Haave (drums) and Vald (vocals). 4 songs have been recorded so far and the band is extremely pleased with both the material and the sound.

Norweigan death metallers BLOOD RED THRONE have had some changes within their ranks recently. New members Vald (vocals) and Anders (drums) will be joining current members Død, Tchort and Erlend for their upcoming European tour with MORTICIAN and AKERCOCKE this coming November.
According to guitarist and founding member Død, former vocalist Mr. Hustler could no longer continue with BLOOD RED THRONE due his occupational commitments. Meanwhile, former drummer Espen "Beist" Antonsen was not available to perform and rehease with the band as often as other members would've liked so the band opted for someone within a closer vicinity to the rest of the members. Død also said that he was excited about taking the new line-up out on the road, stating, "we're ready to kick ass live!"

"Altered Genesis" features the following tracklisting:
Norwegian death metal band Blood Red Throne recently began work on their new album, titled "Altered Genesis." Here's a quote from guitarist Tchort regarding the project thus far:
"After a turbulent, and in many ways a classical BRT episode, the recording process is now heading forward again. With one drummer put out of 'his misery' and several others biting the dust, the band laid down the drum tracks with the help of Bernt A Moen and are now halfway through recording the guitar tracks. We had set a high standard for this album, and anyone who couldn't meet that standard, would simply have to go. It wasn't pretty, it wasn't clean and it certainly wasn't going to be about lowering the quality of performance - it was the fucking BRT curse striking again!"
Look for the album to hit stores in early-2005 via Earache Records.
Norwegian death metallers Blood Red Throne have signed a worldwide multi-album deal with Earache Records.
The brainchild of ex-Emperor bassist Tchort, Blood Red throne have "unleashed a series of gruesomely precise death metal releases, most recently the acclaimed 'Affiliated With the Suffering' record, which has seen them grow steadily in popularity and notoriety," according to an official press release announcing the deal.
