Death metal band Six Feet Under has announced that they will be releasing their new album Unborn on Mar. 19th via Metal Blade Records. To celebrate this announcement, the band has released a lyric video for their newest single “Zombie Blood Curse”, which you can watch below. You can also pre-order the album here.
Vocalist Chris Barnes states, “The journey to create, write, and record Undead and Unborn has been the most challenging and exciting musical endeavor and process I have ever been involved with. Working with all these amazing writers and musicians like Ben Savage (Whitechapel) on songs like Neuro Osmosis and Fragment are some of the most dynamic, beautiful, and brutal songs I’ve ever had the pleasure of putting lyrics to. I believe Ben is a true innovator of the death metal genre. It was also a lot of fun working Jari Laine from Torture Killer again. We wrote a great album together a few years back called SWARM! –one of my favorite releases I’ve been involved with– and Jari is someone who I have really wanted to work with again ever since. I wanted to revisit collaborating with Jari because of how well we work together; proof of that on Unborn are the hook heavy sounds of songs like Zombie Blood Curse and Incision.” READ MORE

Cattle Decapitation has pulled out of the current tour with Six Feet Under and Wretched. Singer Travis Ryan posted a comment on his Facebook page where he called Six Feet Under/ex-Cannibal Corpse singer Chris Barnes, “…a fucking hack.”. The band would’ve played The Studio at Webster Hall today in New York, NY.
Ryan’s full statement reads, “Chris Barnes is a fucking hack. I’ve personally passed on at least 5 six feet [Under] tours over the last 8 or so years because he pulls so much nonsense on the support bands because his ego is astronomical. We’re leaving the Chris Barnes Show tour today. Go to the Chris Barnes show and buy some of their merch. They need it desperately.”
