New SIX FEET UNDER Album Next Month

Crypt Of The Devil is the impending new full-length from long-running death metal miscreants,SIX FEET UNDER. Composed by legendary vocalist Chris Barnes and Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil “Landphil” Hall, the band’s eleventh studio recording boasts ten murderous slabs of audio repugnance. A continuation from SIX FEET UNDER‘s previous works of deviousness, wherein Barnes pens lyrics from the darkest point of the human condition, Crypt Of The Devil is punishing in both sound and concept.

As a precursor to its official unveiling via Metal Blade Records next month, today Decibel Magazine premieres seventh sadistic crusher, “Stab,” now slicing its way through the airwaves at THIS LOCATION.

Crypt Of The Devil was captured at Hall’s studio in Virginia. Hall tracked rhythm and bass guitar, while his brother, Josh Hall, tracked drums, and guitarist Brandon Ellis tracked the majority of the album’s leads. Barnes took to London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains etc.) in his new base of operations in Seattle, Washington to record vocals and in fact holed himself up in the very same booth where Layne Staley tracked his words. Mixing was completed by Rob Caldwell (Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan etc.) in Sarasota, Florida and mastering was handled by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Revocation, Torche, Skeletonwitch etc.) at West West Side in New Windsor, New York. Crypt Of The Devil stands as a truly collaborative and cross-country effort from a selection of today’s finest metal minds, and the result is a refreshing yet instinctively brutal SIX FEET UNDER experience.

SIX FEET UNDER is currently terrorizing Europe headlining HateFest Tour 2015 with support from Marduk, Vader and Hate, with North American live invasions to be announced in the coming weeks.

SIX FEET UNDER w/ Marduk, Vader, Hate [remaining dates]:

4/11/2015 Backstage – München, DE w/ Eisregen, Debauchery

SIX FEET UNDER began as a side project while Barnes – owner of what would become one of the most dominating, groundbreaking and instantly distinguishable voices of the death metal genre – was fronting Cannibal Corpse. SIX FEET UNDER would eventually become a full-fledged entity in 1995 and now stands among the longest standing and successful acts in death metal history, with all but their debut appearing on a Billboard chart.

Crypt Of The Devil will see release via Metal Blade Records on May 5th, 2015 and includes the outstanding cover art of Mike Hrubovcak (Aurora Borealis, Sinister, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder et al). For preorder bundles and a taste of first single, “Open Coffin Orgy,” visit:metalblade.com/sixfeetunder.

EPHEL DUATH Finishing New Album

Next July, experimental metallers EPHEL DUATH will return to Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. Together with producer Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goathwhore, Hate Eternal) the band will complete the recording sessions for their new album started last February, and do the final mix. Alan Douches will master the songs at his West West Side Studios, NY.

EPHEL DUATH’s new album will once again feature the incredible Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Kreator, Necorphagist) on drums, joined this time by his band mate Bryan Beller (The Aristocrats, Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass.

The recording line-up is as follow:

Davide Tiso – guitars
Karyn Crisis – vocals
Marco Minnemann – drums
Bryan Beller – bass

Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 55 minutes of total length, EPHEL DUATH’s new album is a multilayered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, blended together with a strong will to experiment and with no boundaries in sight.

“I wanted this album to be a strong statement,” comments Davide Tiso.

“And I believe we achieved that. Every time I put together a release for Ephel Duath, I deal with it as if it was our last. Would I be OK to let this album be the band’s last shout? Yes, I definitely would. I compose music to primarily please myself; doing it puts my mind in a very specific place, a spot where I feel fitting-in much, much better than in everyday life. Playing my guitar for Ephel Duath I get the peace and the release I need to keep myself going. I’m an avid metal listener but when I play for Ephel Duath I don’t feel the need to bring my music to fit any parameters, at the same time I don’t put any efforts whatsoever to sound different: I just let go and navigate.”

“Songs are coming out effortlessly and quicker the older I get, and I believe that with this new album I reached the highest level of intensity of my entire musical career,” continues Davide.

“Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest.”

Some of the new songs titles are: Tracing the Path of Blood, Feathers Under My Skin, When Mind Escapes Flesh.

EPHEL DUATH’s new album will come out in the fall of 2013 on Agonia Records, it will be available in digital, CD and vinyl version.
