SIX FEET UNDER
"CRYPT OF THE DEVIL"
METAL BLADE RECORDS
What can you say about the great SIX FEET UNDER that has not been said already.
These guys have been come one of the greatest Death Metal bands ever. Not a surprise
since it was started by two guys from CANNIBAL CORPSE & OBITUARY, two
other great Death metal bands and originators of the genre. "CRYPT OF THE DEVIL" is
the bands newest release that came out in May of 2015. The band plays traditional old
school Death Metal music in the vein of their other bands. They started out more of a
brutal Death Metal band and then morphed into a Death Groove / Death N Roll band. I
love their early stuff, but actually really like the direction the band has gone. I like the
fact that you can can slam to it, but then groove out as well. The music tends to have
more of a rythmn rather than go high speeds and play as fast and as loud as you can.
Some people prefer their earlier stuff but I love it all. A lot of people, including myself
actually prefer the music of SIX FEET UNDER over more recent work from
CANNIBAL CORPSE & OBITUARY. The vocals are done in a low ended Death
growl style, but are just clear enough to understand them. Most people reading this don't
need an explination to the sounds of SIX FEET UNDER, because they should be know
to just about every fan of Death Metal. If your unaware then if you were to mix the
killer styles of ENTOMBED, DEBAUCHERY, CANNIBAL CORPSE, OBITUARY,
TORTURE KILLER, JUNGLE ROT & BOLT THROWER together and you'd have
SIX FEET UNDER. (If you know who any of these bands are, then you should know
who SIX FEET UNDER is, so I don't know how this helps). The bottom line is you
should know who they are and should already have this in your collection! If not get it!!!
