SixFeetUnder-CryptOfTheDevil

Chris Barnes has always been controversial, whether spewing gore lyrics or for his personality (see the feud with the awesome Cattle Decapitation) . Whatever your take on Barnes, his new track “Open Coffin Orgy” is the funnest SFU song in a long time. SIX FEET UNDER, will release their eleventh studio recording this Spring via Metal Blade Records. The album is called Crypt Of The Devil, a collaboration between Chris Barnes and Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil “Landphil” Hall. I have high hopes for it, since Phil Hall is the man and writes awesome shit. I’ve always retained some measure of appreciation for SFU due to Barnes collaboration with Karyn Crisis on “Sick and Twisted”. J’adore Karyn and it’s just a classic really underground death metal track.

This new song starts off almost with like a half time Ministry riff re-cast in a death metal mold, though as it progresses things get more active guitar-wise. Some great stuff on this very heavy and at times humorous track. Wanna be serial killers who smoke weed on couches are stoked! Shit, I’m stoked! Check “Open Coffin Orgy” out HERE.

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.”

Side Note: Barnes took to London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains etc.) in his new base of operations in Seattle, Washington to record vocals and in fact holed himself up in the very same booth where Layne Staley tracked his words.
