Grand Supreme Blood Court
A few years ago
Hail Of Bullets
came on to the scene and were regarded as a Dutch death metal supergroup
of sorts, and with the ambitiously-titled Grand Supreme Blood Court
we have another such band.
The bands draw from similar heritages, as both feature past or present
and in fact each other.
And like HOB, this band is really just the sum of its parts, with plenty
of old-school (i.e. less technical) death metal the order of the day.
Eric Daniels' grindy, razory guitars are pretty cool, and the intensity
is there, but the songs are pretty samey and there's little new ground
That's often the case with supergroups it seems -- more of an additional
outlet for like-minded folk to ply their wares rather than really trying
That's not to say Bow Down Before The Blood Court
but it is pretty much what one would expect.
