Earache Records have announced the signing of Norway’s BLOOD RED THRONE, the band featuring GREEN CARNATION mastermind and one-time EMPEROR bassist, Tchort, to a worldwide multi-album deal.
Earache Label Manager, Dan Tobin, commented:
“Earache and Blood Red Throne is the perfect match; on the one hand is a label committed to extremity in music, on the other is a band who is ravenous for Death Metal and ready for the challenge of taking the sound further. We look forward to releasing the band’s brand new material in 2004 and helping them crush as many heads in the process as possible.”
Tchort also made a statement on the signing:
“The guys [in the band] couldn’t be happier about signing to Earache Records at this point. The label’s enthusiasm for the band is undeniable and the feeling is mutual, and we’re proud to be a part of the rich history Earache has within Extreme Metal, and also to join ranks with some of the most supreme Death Metal acts around. We have started writing for the third album (Altered Genesis) and the new material sounds excellent so far; prepare for a more intense, brutal and viciously groovy 2004 Death Metal release!”
Altered Genesis will be the follow-up to the band’s Affiliated With the Suffering album which was released early this year.
