Album Review

Often touted as the last true practitioners of "pure American death metal," Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes' 1995 side project has blossomed into a full-time career. On its eighth full-length recording, Six Feet Under does little to ruffle the feathers of the genre it helped to define over the last ten years, but the band's pragmatic, unfussy approach to brutality demands respect, even if it fails to encourage repeated listens. Death Rituals is tight, compact, and blissfully free of muddy reverb and ten-minute epics (anyone wondering what a doom-laden, black metal-ized Motörhead fronted by an "Orc" would sound like, check out "Bastard"). It's also a hastily recorded slab of meat that didn't hang on the hook long enough, but despite an opening quartet of cuts that could have been scraped off of the floor of any old Metal Blade recording session, Death Rituals dabbles in enough unpredictable time signatures "Seed of Filth") and song structures ("Crossroads to Armageddon") that step outside of the standard aggro-metal, kneecap remover template to save itself.

Hell yeah! sfu is back!

I've been awaiting this release for a long time now and of course, once again, sfu does NOT disappoint. It's only been a few years that I actually found this band and was instantly hooked. I've since bought every release I can find and listen to them non stop. I love the heavy riffs and the overall sound. So many bands are just into speed but sfu just has that precise, sludgy, chugging groove that just drags you in and leaves you banging your head and wanting more. Thanks guys, yet another satisfied when's the 'next' release coming out??? I want more already!!!!



Heavy?..... Thats an understatement

Take the lead singer of cannibal corpse and tell him that its just not heavy enough for you, and six feet under is what you get. A much slower tempo of nothing but insanely heavy breakdown riffs, and gutteral vocals psychotic enough to make you wanna punch a baby. Solid proof that it doesn"t have to be fast to heavy

Originally a side project for Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes and former Obituary guitarist Allen West, Six Feet Under eventually became a full-time proposition when friction between Barnes and his other bandmates became too much to bear. Featuring ex-Death bassist Terry Butler and drummer Greg Gall in the rhythm section, Six Feet Under issued their debut album, Haunted, in 1995. Barnes subsequently quit Cannibal Corpse, and Six Feet Under issued the stopgap EP Alive and Dead in 1996 to tide...
