Biography

(1998 – present)

Død started his musical career in the legendary Norwegian black metal band Satyricon. 19 years old he was picked out to be their live guitarist from 1996 to 1999. Playing black metal in Satyricon, there were never a question, death metal was Død’s major passion and in 1998 he started working on material for his own death metal band. His friend Tchort(Emperor, Carpathian Forest), who also played bass in Satyricon, shared the same passion and Blood Red Throne was officially a band.

Shortly after, the young and talented bass player Erlend Caspersen was found and the search for a drummer and singer could start! There weren’t any suitable drummers around in our hometown at that time, but after a while we got in touch with Freddy Bolsø, who just moved to town to study! He was just the drummer we were looking for and it was amazing to start rehearsing on our material.
We soon wanted to record a demo and we invited Ronnie Thorsen from Trail of Tears to help us out with the vocals. This became the Deathmix 2000 demo, which led to a record deal with Hammerheart Records.
Our debut album had to be recorded, but we still hadn’t found a permanent singer. Just 3 weeks before entering studio, we asked long time friend, Mr.Hustler, to join the band. He had never played in a band or done some vocals ever before, but Monument of Death became a fuckin’ killer debut album, released 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 member’s own blood!
