Let Decibel magazine hurl your weekend into a sonic maelstrom of brutality with a full stream of Undead, the forthcoming new studio offering from death metal monarchsSIX FEET UNDER. Scheduled for European release on May 18th/21st through Metal Blade Records, Undead was produced by Mark Lewis (Deicide, Devildriver) and mixed by Jason Suecof (Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy) at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida. The record features an updated lineup of Barnes alongside guitarist Rob Arnold (ex- Chimaira), longtime guitarist Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre), bassist Jeff Hughell (ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile), and drummer Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira) and has already begun raising the ears of fans and critics alike. In an early review, Blistering.com commends the band for giving “meat-and-potatoes death metal a nice kick in the behind,” PitRiff.com champions Undead for being “powerful, musical and yet distinctly death metal,” while PureGrainAudio opines: “…one of the world’s biggest death metal acts is still a commanding force of sonic destruction.” Adds Metal Assault in a 9/10 rating: “if you’re into throat-grabbing riffs and groove-oriented extreme music…Undead is right up your alley.”
Stream Undead in its relentless entirety at THIS LOCATION.
Please make also sure to check out the SFU landing page at THIS LOCATION featuring the first singleFormaldehyde, a video interview with SIX FEET UNDER frontman/death metal veteran Chris Barnes as conducted by Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel and all the pre-order bundles available.
In conjunction with the album release SIX FEET UNDER will return to Europe in August to play some exclusive festival gigs as well as selected club shows.
Support comes from SFU labelmates DEW-SCENTED who will release their new album Icarus end of July!
