Album Review: Six Feet Under – Undead


If it hadn’t been for a few recent lineup changes, I probably wouldn’t have been that excited about Six Feet Under’s new album, Undead.  I would have bought whatever they released as the dedicated fan I am, though it probably would have been more of the same repetitive groove-driven riffs, deep growls, and occasional double-bass I could count on.  Enter both (former) Chimaira guitarists Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries and now I am most interested (note – DeVries on bass already left and was replaced by Jeff Hughell).  Undead is the album we have all wanted to hear from Barnes and Co.  Why?  It is Death metal just like the old days of the first three SFU albums – more or less, which is a good thing.  However, Arnold being in the band doesn’t necessarily mean the introduction of longer and more melodic guitar solos.  In fact, most of the songs barely scratch the 3-minute surface.

Song of the Week – Frozen at the Moment of Death


If you follow death metal then you know the groovy grinding sounds of Six Feet Under will be upon us shortly. Excited?  For now, they have released this new track for your listening pleasure – well worth for our Song of the Week.  I have to say…this is the Six Feet Under I have been waiting for! This is much faster than what we have been hearing from Barnes and Co. over the years. I think the addition of (former Chimaira guitarist) Rob Arnold kicked SFU into gear. So far, this new music is quite promising.  Click here to take you away to where their song is patiently waiting to be heard.
