“We want to get out there and pretty much destroy,” says Six Feet Under vocalist Chris Barnes in a Metal Blade press release. “We want to play to as many people as possible, and show all of the fans out there the new songs, and leave nothing but a trail of blood in our wake. We’re hoping that whoever makes body bags are upping their output, because after this record comes out there’ll be a lot of decomposing bodies out there!”

While we’re not sure if Barnes is equating the release of Undead to the unexpected decomposition of humanity or if he’s just stating the obvious (around 154,889 people die every day according to the CIA Factbook), we have to cross our Sanrio-fabricated hearts that the future ills facing his fellow man won’t befall the members of Six Feet Under, ’cause let’s face it drum madman Kevin Talley just joined, and, well, it’d be shame to have Talley’s quick licks appear on one Six Feet Under long-player.

Without further run-on sentences or random (but oddly relevant to Six Feet Under) factoids, here’s Undead:

** Six Feet Under’s new album, Undead, is out May 22nd on Metal Blade Records. Find your inner zombie (or zombie eradicator) and click HERE. And, trust us, it might just be the band’s best album since, uh, Haunted.

    Awesome – will be getting the cd!! Been waiting for this for months!

  • Ultimate Hulkenstein

     Nothing special; no melody to speak of; for the most part boring

    • Buttman

      Indeed. For a metal album, it is rather lifeless.

      • Nationsagent

        Buttman and Hulkenstein have no clue on what metal is I have one word that describes you 2..  TOOL!!!!!

        • QuasiModel

          You mad, bro?

    • Nationsagent

      idiot

  • Justinterred

    Extremely tight and enjoyable. Worthy of many repeated listens. 2012 is shaping up to be the year when stale, familiar Death Metal bands make focused, hooky albums that remind us why we liked them in the first place.

    Anybody else think the riffage in Vampire Apocalypse sound a lot like Obituary?

    It’s a great album and I’m going to get it . But I don’t think it holds a candle to Haunted or Warpath. It was just a different band back in the beginning with Allen West on guitar.  

  • Musictree2007

    I’ve followed SFU from the beginning and they conrinue to hold their own above and beyond! m/!!!

    When started to listen I got a little disappointed like I awaited for something more… But after couple of tracks I dig in and got what I waited for. Growling vox and funeral guitars with killing sound, it seems that some deadmen arisin’ from their fuckin’ graves! Just one thing screw everything up: the frequencies and dynamic range of sound look poor (I hope it’s just because bitrate cut and the CD’s gonna be OK).
