Tampa death metallers Six Feet Under announced their latest lineup change today, welcoming the addition of guitarist Rob Arnold, formally of Chimaira. Rob Arnold will be joining the band as second rhythm guitarist for upcoming touring duties, as well as collaborating on the new CD.
Vocalist Chris Barnes commented, I couldn’t be happier about the new songs and line up! Rob and myself have been collaborating on new songs along with the bands new drummer, Kevin Talley, for the past few months. We are all feeling really excited about the bands future, and the raw intensity of the songs that we have created together so far. This is the heaviest most exciting material that I’ve worked on since The Bleeding, and I’m stoked that Rob will be helping out creating this CD with us! We’ve all known each other for a while and we’re really looking forward to continue writing the new CD and future tours. We are committed to taking Six Feet Under to the next level of brutality!!!
Rob Arnold commented, It’s been an amazing honor and opportunity to have been called upon by one of my biggest idols, Chris Barnes!! Six Feet Under and the Barnes era Cannibal stuff had enormous effects on me as a young musician, and still do to this day. In 1996, I was a kid in the front row screaming my head off to ‘Lycanthropy’ and ‘Torn to the Bone’…and now here I am, being asked to play the songs on stage with the band! Dreams do come true!!! And the stuff we’ve been writing absolutely RIPS! Watch out!!
