Mighty Music has announced the signing of the Norwegian death metal band BLOOD RED THRONE. The group's new full-length album, titled "Fit To Kill", will be released in late spring.
BLOOD RED THRONE's guitar player, founder and mastermind Daniel "Død" Olaisen says: "2018 was a quiet year for us. Now, we start 2019 by joining forces with our Scandinavian friends in Mighty Music record label that will release our ninth album, 'Fit To Kill', this spring. We have several live shows comin' up and we're ready as fuck to take back the 'Throne.'"
Fernando Reis from Mighty Music comments: "We've been following BLOOD RED THRONE as fans since their 'Monument Of Death' debut album in 2001, and have always been fans of their crunchy, technically pinched, full-on death metal. They've been carrying the [death metal] flame in Scandinavia throughout all the black metal several waves. When the opportunity came to work with them, there was no room for second thoughts."
BLOOD RED THRONE was started by Olaisen when he played in SATYRICON in the '90s. Original drummer Freddy "Fred The Shred" Bolsø returned in 2013 and Ivan "Meathook" Gujic, Ole "Hellbent" Madsen and Yngve "Bolt" Christiansen have been in the team the last eight to 10 years. Stian "Gunner" Gundersen was recently replaced as the band's new bass player.
BLOOD RED THRONE is known for its energetic live shows. The band has toured with such groups as DIMMU BORGIR, ENSLAVED, SUFFOCATION and CRYPTOPSY.
