Death metal legends SIX FEET UNDER will be embarking on a headlining tour this Fall. The Chris-Barnes-named Autumn Apocalypse Tour will include label mates CATTLE DECAPITATION as well as death metal newcomers, Wretched. The journey will commence on October 30 and run through the first half of November, with the full routing available below.
Led by the inimitable Chris Barnes, possessor of one of the most dominant and instantly recognizable voices of the death metal genre, SIX FEET UNDER now features new guitarist Ola Englund, longtime guitarist Steve Swanson, new bassist Jeff Hughell, and drummer Kevin Talley, whose history blasting for Dying Fetus, Misery Index, and Chimaira speaks for itself. SIX FEET UNDER 2012 finds the band reinvigorated and churning out some of the most visceral, in-your-face, and downright horrifying tunes in their renowned discography of brutality both lyrically and musically. Said Decibel Magazine off the band’s recently-unleashed Undead full-length: “This is the best thing SFU have recorded since Maximum Violence… [Chris Barnes] hasn’t sounded this focused or committed in years.” Listen and order here.
CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s 11-track album, Monolith Of Inhumanity, is an achievement that stands out as one of the most volatile, ambitious, and impossible-to-pigeonhole records of 2012. Commended by Stereokiller for being ”their most focused and intelligent album yet… this is another solid CATTLE DECAP release that proves again that they are not to be fucked with,” and noted for being ”arguably the quartet’s strongest effort to date,” by Blistering, the record was produced by Dave Otero of Denver’s Flatline Audio and finds the progressive grind conjurers exploring innovative new techniques in song writing without abandoning their signature formula of confrontational audio wreckage. Be sure to check out the band’s latest video for “Kingdom Of Tyrants” HERE.
