When this popped into my email, I knew that I HAD to check it out. And, lo and behold, it’s exactly the type of thing that I should be sharing with you, my horror loving readers. Dutch death metal band Grand Supreme Blood Court have released the cover artwork for their upcoming debut album Bow Down Before The Blood Court, which comes out Nov. 20th in N. America (Nov. 12th in Europe) via Century Media Records. The album was mixed by Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Edge Of Sanity) The bloody and violent cover can be seen below.
Grand Registrar Zuur states, “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.“
