A few days ago, Six Feet Under announced the departure of bassist Matt DeVries. The death metal band has enlisted the talented Jeff Hughell, formerly of Brain Drill and death metal band Vile. Hughell will be a great addition to an already incredibly talented band.
Vocalist Chris Barnes had this to say: “Six Feet Under is proud to announce our new member, bass player Jeff Hughell. He’s an amazing musician and I have been a fan of his work since first hearing Brain Drill a few years back. We feel with the addition of Jeff, all the puzzle pieces are in place and the killing machine known as Six Feet Under is now a true death metal force to be reckoned with! Prepare to be toe tagged and body bagged.”

Jeff Hughell comments on joining the band: “I am honored to be the newest edition to the mighty Six Feet Under. This band is now a well oiled killing machine with Kevin Talley and myself as the rhythm section, Steve Swanson and Rob Arnold crushing guitars, and of course the man himself Chris Barnes killing it on vocals. The new material is the heaviest Six Feet Under songs I have ever heard and I can’t wait for the world to get their faces melted clean off by it. I would like to thank Mike Faley, Kelli Malella and the whole Six Feet Under family for thinking of me. It’s going to be one hell of a ride!”
Speaking of melting faces, here is Jeff doing just that.
