Blood Red Throne
Blood Red Throne is a death metal band from Kristiansand, Norway. They released their fourth full-length album, Come Death, on 27 August 2007. The band features guitarist Tchort, primarily of Emperor fame, and D├©d (Daniel Olaisen), guitarist of the progressive metal band Scariot. Blood Red Throne started in 1998 when D├©d and Tchort (while playing in Satyricon at that time), decided to form their own band and show their passion for death metal. Tchort had been playing death metal since 1989 with his band Green Carnation, which was one of the first death metal bands in Norway, and D├©d had been a huge fan and of the genre since 1992 . Tchort was also the bass player in Emperor in the early 90's and has been involved with bands like Carpathian Forest and Einherjer. The band soon got in touch with a very skilled drummer living in their hometown by the name of Freddy Bols├©, and BRT was born and soon after bassist Erlend Caspersen joined the newly formed Blood Red Throne. The band recorded a demo, entitled Deathmix 2000 with Ronni Thorsen from Trail of Tears providing the vocals. This demo got excellent feedback and BRT got offers from labels right away! Finally having recruited long time friend Mr.Hustler as the permanent frontman, the same line-up recorded the debut Monument of Death and released it through Hammerheart Records in 2001. The limited edition included a package called 'The Suicide Kit', which not only contained the actual album, but also a printed razor blade and a poster. The kits were hand numbered in the band memberÔs own blood! BRT never did any live shows with this line up and Freddy Bols├© moved back to his hometown and BRT had to find a new drummer.
