Official press release: Dutch death metal tribunal Grand Supreme Blood Court will release their debut album, Bow Down Before The Blood Court, via Century Media Records on November 12th in Europe and November 20th in North America. The band has now revealed the album's intense cover artwork, which was created by Axel Hermann (Asphyx, Grave, Unleashed). GSBC's main songwriters are former Asphyx-axeman Eric Daniels and current Asphyx-bassist Alwin Zuur (who plays guitar in GSBC), whereas vocal duties are being handled by one of the fiercest throats in human history: Martin van Drunen. Rounded off by Bob Bagchus (Asphyx) on drums and bassist Theo van Eekelen (Hail of Bullets), you can expect to-the-bone death metal inspired by old Slaughter, Funeral Bitch or Necrovore. The album was mixed by none other than Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity, Bloodbath). Grand Registrar Zuur adds: "Finally, the Blood Court has become a real and totally devastating band! While some might sneer at the similarities with the Asphyx line-up, as soon as you listen to this beast of an album you will realize that with Eric and me on guitar, GSBC musically takes another route and offers a different kind of riffing and some sick yet harmonic, epic pieces. No matter if you're into Asphyx or any of the other bands related to the Blood Court, we invested enough blood, spirit and energy into this record to know that it will not disappoint anyone into straight-forward, face-melting death metal. No compromises."
