Grand Supreme Blood Court: releases new album, 'Bow Down Before The Blood Court,' today in North America
Dutch death metal tribunal GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT have released their debut album, Bow Down Before The Blood Court, today in North America! To hear the album in its entirety, please head over to Decibel Magazine.com for the exclusive album stream [a special introduction and track by track breakdown by Bob Bagchus (drums) is also available alongside the stream].
GSBC's main songwriters are former ASPHYX-axeman Eric Daniels and current ASPHYX-bassist Alwin Zuur (who plays guitar in GSBC). 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).
"These nice little Dutch boys have successfully melded together brutal, face removing rock beats, chainsaw bass, flame thrower guitars and punk-like growls to make 'Bow Down Before the Blood Court' a carnival of carnage that is not to be missed!!!" -- Matt Olivo (REPULSION)
"Welcome to the Blood Court where skulls are crushed, skin is stripped, guts are pummeled and eardrums are shattered! Of course when you see who is responsible for this feast of darkness and metal violence, none of the above should be a surprise. These warriors of death and doom are pros at making heads bang and brains erupt, so don't hesitate to set your stereo on 'kill' and allow yourself to be swept away into a sea of audio carnage. I have been saying that we are living in a new golden age of metal and this album only confirms that statement. Fuck yeah!" -- Chris Reifert (AUTOPSY)
"'BDBTBC' is a slower, crawling, evil little bastard of old school death metal: great riff structures, voracious vocals, simple-yet-memorable arrangements, no reliance on gimmicks or being overly technical." -- BLISTERING.com
"...if you want to hear that special tree-cutting blend of doom-ridden ghastliness performed with the kind of spirit and soul that gave birth to [death metal] in the first place, then bow down before the Blood Court ..." -- NO CLEAN SINGING.com
"Death metal at its finest. GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT know how to channel the essence of the genre and this album is proof of it." -- THE METAL CIRCUS (Spain)
To purchase Bow Down Before The Blood Court, please head over to iTunes for a digital copy or to CM Distro for the album, plus a special CD/t-shirt bundle.
