Composed by notorious growl tsar, Chris Barnes with Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil "Landphil" Hall, Crypt Of The Devil serves as SIX FEET UNDER's eleventh studio offering and delivers ten venomous odes of murderous death metal barbarity ornamented in Barnes' haunting prose. Surveying the blackest depths of the human mind, the record is disquieting in both sound, mind and spirit.

SIX FEET UNDER began as a side project while Barnes - owner of what would become one of the most dominating, groundbreaking and instantly distinguishable voices of the death metal genre - was fronting Cannibal Corpse. SIX FEET UNDER would eventually become a full-fledged entity in 1995 and now stands among the longest standing and successful acts in death metal history, with all but their debut appearing on a Billboard chart.
Crypt Of The Devil is out now on Metal Blade Records. Various order bundles are available today atmetalblade.com/sixfeetunder.
