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.

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.

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.

SIX FEET UNDER Recruit Another Former Member of BRAIN DRILL

SIX FEET UNDER parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley. However, the transition for the new drummer will be near-seemless, as he is a former band member of bassist Jeff Hughell. Marco Pitruzzella has officially joined the ranks of SIX FEET UNDER and will make his debut appearance with the band this Saturday in Memphis, TN at Scion Rock Fest! For info on the fest, including the full line-up, visit scionav.com.

Chris Barnes discusses the lineup change:

“I’m proud to announce a new addition to the ranks of Six Feet Under. Replacing drummer Kevin Talley is our new friend and cohort, Marco Pitruzzella (http://youtu.be/KVs_HBoxZds). Marco has worked with Jeff Hughell in their former band, Brain Drill, and is such an amazing talented and great guy. I’m very excited having him in the band and can’t wait to take the stage with Marco this Saturday in Memphis for Scion Rock Fest!”

“It was good working with Kevin Talley for the past couple of years, but we are very ready and extremely focused on moving the band forward with a new, more stable and permanent lineup for writing as well as touring. Be prepared to be shredded! See you all soon!”

SIX FEET UNDER’s latest album, Unborn, is available now. Fans can preview and order now at metalblade.com/sixfeetunder.

New SIX FEET UNDER Song Available

Death metal behemoths SIX FEET UNDER are back, and with the seething Unborn, the tenth full-length of their imposing career, they are out for blood. Led by the inimitable Chris Barnes, owner of one of the most powerful and instantly recognizable voices in the genre, the band are returning with an overhauled line up that sees them reinvigorated and churning out some of the most visceral music they have ever put their name to.

SIX FEET UNDER debut Neuro Osmosis

Click here to hear the third single from Unborn, Neuro Osmosis. You can hear Prophecy on The Welding Room or request ANY song from the new album.

In November of 2010 when vocalist and founding member Chris Barnes first started to get the idea of working with new writers for SIX FEET UNDER’s next release, he contacted Rob Arnold, Jari Laine, and Ben Savage to share in the writing process. After just two years of writing and recording 20 plus tracks, and releasing Undead in May of 2012, SIX FEET UNDER are now proud to unveil Undead’s demented fraternal twin…

Undead proved to be one of SIX FEET UNDER’s most critically acclaimed albums to date, and with a revamped and tour-hardened lineup rounded out by: guitarist Ola Englund, drummer Kevin Talley, bassist Jeff Hughell, and long-time guitarist Steve Swanson, Unborn promises to elevate the band to even loftier heights.

The lyric video for Zombie Blood Curse, the first track to be loosed from Unborn, is streaming now at metalblade.com/sixfeetunder. While there, fans can also pre-order the album.

“this is the best thing SFU have recorded since Maximum Violence…[Chris Barnes] hasn’t sounded this focused or committed in years”  – Decibel
