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.

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 had this to say on the band's new union: "The guys 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!"
