Dutch death metal tribunal Grand Supreme Blood Court will release 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 cover artwork, which was created by Axel Hermann (Asphyx, Grave, etc.). 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 Martin van Drunen. The tribunal is rounded off by Bob Bagchus on drums and bassist Theo van Eekelen (Hail of Bullets). The new album was mixed by none other than Dan Swanö.
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 ine-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."
The tribunal is:
Grand Magistrate Bagchus -- firing squad commander and coffin drummings
Grand Judge Daniels -- axe wielding beheader guitar
Grand Prosecutor van Drunen -- verdicts, sentences and tormented howls
Grand Registrar Zuur -- blood runes and flesh-saw guitar
Grand Executioner van Eekelen -- torture instruments and slaying bass More...

Century Media has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Grand Supreme Blood Court:
"Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of Dutch death metal doom mongers Grand Supreme Blood Court! Grand Supreme Blood Court was founded in 2011 by former Asphyx guitar player Eric Daniels, who left behind the active death metal scene years ago after the release of Asphyx's studio album, On The Wings Of Inferno. But as one should never deny his roots, Daniels is now back to spread the plague of doom once more."
Daniels commented, "After some resting years, the wish to play real doom/death was boiling again. It feels great to compose again, my guitars are more close to me than they were ever before. Grand Supreme Blood Court gives me the motivation and true belief to spit out the true and real doom/death. I have five words to say about the upcoming album: Heavy...Brutal...Doom...Crushing...Real. My respect and gratitude towards the fans who kept supporting me, even when I wasn't there. YOU RULE!!!"
Still having maintained very close contact to his old band-mates in Asphyx, Eric has teamed up with Martin van Drunen and Bob Bagchus for Grand Supreme Blood Court as well. Still, Grand Supreme Blood Court differs from the current Asphyx sound. Philipp Schulte, A&R at Century Media Germany, comments: More...
