Quite possibly one of the most important bands to be set loose upon the underground, Six Feet Under's latest effort Bringer of Blood, the band's fifth studio release, is nothing short of true brilliance and will without a doubt be one of the most prolific releases the band has put out to date. Blending the perfect mixture of grooves and raw aggression this band has everything from hooks to a full assault on ones senses. While lyrics on past albums have been more like scenes from a horror movie this time around Chris Barnes has taken it to another level of reality. Coming more from past experiences and current views on the world Bringer of Blood takes a step into a more reality-based point of view. The band has evolved in way that will only push them further into the mainstream without losing an ounce of brutality that the band has become famous for. With the release of Bringer of Blood Six Feet Under will undoubtedly take reign as the biggest death metal band in the underground scene today.
Since the release of their first album Haunted in 1995 death metal icon and forefather Chris Barnes and company have created some of the most stand out songs among the death metal community today. Originally started as a side project by then Cannibal Corpse lead throat Chris Barnes along with Obituary guitarist Allen West, Death's Terry Butler and drummer Greg Gall quickly turned it into a full time band after Chris' departure from Cannibal Corpse that same year. Since then the band has been regarded as one of the world's most respected groups in extreme music. In 1998, guitarist Steve Swanson of the seminal death metal act Massacre joined the fold replacing West. His contribution would mark a significant turning point. And with the release of 1999's Maximum Violence, the world beyond metal took notice. Tours with Danzig and a stint on the 2000 Vans Warped Tour (an honor usually reserved for the Punk Rock elite) followed, making Maximum Violence their most successful release to date.
So sit back and prepare to have your face ripped off by what is sure to be the death metal album of 2003!
