  • chris barnes says that commandment is his favorite sfu record.
    kinda interesting… so i put it in my review.

    its not my favorite, but it is their most straighforward offering.
    as soon as you hit “play” till its over, you are pulverized with the ultra-mega death ‘n’ roll style straight to your brain. the production is pretty much what you’d expect, as are the songs… but, thats what i love about sfu: you always know that you’re gonna get some good metal, man.

    “the edge of the hatchet” is my favorite track. reminds me of a song by GHOUL for some reason? every song though has it’s own special charm. musicianship and barnes’ all sound top notch. everysingle s.m.f. is this band is pulling their weight on this release… no stragglers.

    this is, i believe, their shortest release as well; its just over 30 minutes in length. i often have to play it two times in a row because i need my fix of metal in larger quantities than the length of a seinfeld episode. but… it never overstays its welcome. chris and the boys show up, beat the poop out of you, drink all your milk, kick your dog and leave before you even know what hit you.

    i still like “13″ better though? hence, only 4 starz.

  • Six Feet Under have had ups and downs in their musical direction. After they did the graveyard classics ACDC thing I kind of gave up on them and figured that Chris Barnes was just fading away into redundant lameness. Then they released the album 13 and I was really impressed with the brutality of the songs. Now with Commandment, Six Feet Under prove that they are far from washed up and still have plenty of Deathmetal in them. This album Commandment is in my opinion their best one since Maximum Violence. This new album is exactly what die hard Barnes fans want from him. Sick low growling vocals and thick chunky pure old school DEATH metal riffing. Commandmemnt is an excellent solid Deathmetal release If you like Six Feet Uunder, BUY OR DIE!!!

  • This is classic Six Feet Under, and is better than their last release and there are no stupid covers on this one!

  • I think this is the best album I have had for awhile. The songs flow and continue, the vocals do not get tiresome, and the the overall tempo of the album is consistent. Heavy riffed bellowing.

  • As a certified eccentric who listens to Celia Cruz, Roy Orbison, Opera, Ricardo Arjona, and Cannibal Corpse, I tend to gravitate to whatever I feel embodies a certain feeling or mood I am after.

    This one I can appreciate as its mostly slow, crushing rythems have an apocolyptic feel to it, and at times it evokes insanely rich, vivid gore scenes and head-banging, fist pumping evil.

    The best tune is “The Edge of the Hatchet” and “Ghosts of the Undead,” “Thou Shalt Kill,” “Zombie Exectutioner,” and “Doomsday” are all top-notch as well. Really, 9 of the 10 tunes are great (didn’t care for track 7 for some reason).

    Definitly a heavy album, not as blisteringly speedy as cannibal corpse, not as technical as Death and Morbid Angel– musically it is similar to Obituary, and the vocals are terrifc– deep, pissed and unmistakenable.
