Six Feet Under Biography

Biography

Six Feet Under is a death metal band with heavy rock influences on some of their albums. Originally a side project for Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes and former Obituary guitarist Allen West, Six Feet Under eventually became a full-time proposition when friction between Barnes and his other bandmates became too much to bear. Featuring ex-Death bassist Terry Butler and drummer Greg Gall in the rhythm section, Six Feet Under issued their debut album, Haunted, in 1995. Barnes subsequently quit Cannibal Corpse, and Six Feet Under issued the stopgap EP Alive and Dead in 1996 to tide fans over until the following year's full-length, Warpath. The bands line up has remained stable since 1997 when Allen West quit to be replaced by Steve Swanson formerly of Massacre. Their third album Maximum Violence appeared in 1999. Graveyard Classics followed a year later and 2001's True Carnage featured guest vocals from Ice-T. Double Dead arrived in 2002, followed by Bringer of Blood in 2003, Graveyard Classics, Vol. 2 in 2004, 13 and the Decade in the Grave box in 2005, Commandment in 2007, and Death Rituals in 2008. SFU's newest album "Graveyard Classics 3" was released on Metal Blade Records in January 2010. The album contains covers of several influential heavy metal artists including Metallica, Slayer, and Prong. Six Feet Under has a strong following in Europe especially in Germany. In fact, the band also released a special German language version of the song "Bringer Of Blood". Six Feet Under have met moderate commercial success, with Maximum Violence being their best selling record and figure among one the top 5 selling death metal bands.
