04:13 - deadone Down were originally a supergroup before they decided to make it a more permanent thing and they're a fine band. Demons and Wizards were good on their self titled one too.
03:50 - Doge of Venice Transatlantic are pretty good. Granted, they aren't metal. BUT WHATEVER.
03:01 - Maco I can't think of a good supergroup right now. :s
03:00 - no one supergroups usually imply that they will suck
02:46 - ScreamingSteelUS Supergroups do tend to be kind of bland, but I happen to love that Killer Be Killed album. That's why I'm so glad they've been touring and working on a second album. It's coming into its own as a band, no longer just a one-off.
02:36 - deadone Supergroups imply members from several famous bands getting together and often for a one-off. Off course some last a lot longer e.g. Down.
02:07 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't say that Megadeth counts, because the thing that Daves Mustaine and Ellefson are known for is being IN Megadeth, even if Dave Sr. was previously in Metallica.
