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]:
4/07/2015 Club Vaudeville – Lindau, DE
4/08/2015 Rockfabrik – Ludwigsburg, DE
4/09/2015 Markthalle – Hamburg, DE
4/10/2015 Musichall – Geiselwind, DE w/ Eisregen, Debauchery
4/11/2015 Backstage – München, DE w/ Eisregen, Debauchery
4/12/2015 Postbahnhof – Berlin, 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.

DECREPIT BIRTH Snag THE KENNEDY VEIL Drummist For Tour

Drummer Gabe Seeber of Sacramento‘s fast rising death metal juggernaut, The Kennedy Veil, will be filling in for tech death heavy hitters, Decrepit Birth for their entire Hell In July tour run with Six Feet Under and Cannabis Corpse. With The Kennedy Veil being midway through recording their debut full length and only bass and vocal tracking remaining, Gabe had the time and availability to hit the road while the rest of the band returns to the studio to wrap up the recording process for Trinity of Falsehood.

Decrepit Birth stated via their Facebook page:

“We are pleased to announce that drummer Gabe Seeber (THE KENNEDY VEIL) will be filling in for us during our upcoming tour and and headline festival this July! Due to having such a short amount of time to learn our material, our set at the Homeless One festival will be a bit shorter than expected, but we still promise give you all our absolute best!!! A HUGE thank you to Gabe for busting his ass to keep us going with such short notice!!!”Gabe TKV1

Recording sessions for Trinity of Falsehood officially got underway in June with Gabe traveling out to NB Recording in Santa Rosa, CA to lay down drum tracks with producer/engineer Nick Botelho. Multi-camera video footage was captured, and studio video updates will eventually make their way online, once the band wraps up recording sessions later this month. The rough mix of the song Disciples of Dead Aeons, which is being re-recorded for the album, can be heard here.

Trinity of Falsehood is tentatively set to see a release in late 2013 via Unique Leader Records.
