SIX FEET UNDER, will release their eleventh studio recording
this spring via Metal Blade Records. Titled "Crypt Of The Devil",
the ten track slab of audio violence was composed by vocalist Chris Barnes and
Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil "Landphil" Hall. While on tour with
Cannabis Corpse in 2013, Barnes and Hall met and kept in touch. Barnes would
later lend his vocals to a track on Cannabis Corpse's "From Wisdom To
Baked". That same year, Hall and Barnes joined forces to pen brand new
SIX FEET UNDER tracks. Barnes lauds Hall's take on the SIX FEET
UNDER style of death metal and stated that this material was, "where my
wheelhouse is - it's where I thrive vocally and lyrically."
"Crypt Of The Devil", Barnes has worked to continue the overall
story from the previous works, wherein he is penning lyrics from the perspective
of a serial killer. Or as Barnes describes, it's a "winding journey through
his mind. The songs paint a picture that's not necessarily linear, rather a
meandering back and forth through a dark soul." Soon-to-be-classic cuts such
as "Open Coffin Orgy" serve as exemplary examples of the fruits of
Barnes' macabre muse.
"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 SIX FEET UNDER experience. Or
as refreshing as brutal, visceral death metal can be, anyway.
