Norwegian death metallers BLOOD RED THRONE have been working at Jailhouse studio for the last two days on pre-production for their new album, due out early next year via Earache Records. 70 percent of the material is written and the band entered Jailhouse to test both the studio and the two new members, Anders Haave (drums) and Vald (vocals). Four songs have been recorded so far and the band is extremely pleased with both the material and the sound."This time, we aim for a more classic death metal sound, ala GORGUTS 'Considered Dead' / SUFFOCATION 'Despise the Sun' kind of sound," the band says. "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. We are very pleased with the outcome of the four songs and can't wait 'till the actual album recording starts, hopefully sometime in December." Working songtitles include "Rebirth in Blood", "Come Death" and "No New Beginning".
