We are currently getting ready for our upcoming European tour with Vader and Marduk on HateFest. It will be a cataclysmic event. Do not miss it. Also for this run of dates we want to let you know that stepping in for our bass player, Jeff Hughell, will be Victor Brandt from Entombed.

It's gonna be a great year for SIX FEET UNDER! Can't wait to see you all soon!"

SIX FEET UNDER will release their eleventh studio recording this Spring via Metal Blade Records.Titled Crypt Of The Devil, the ten track slab of audio violence was composed by vocalist Chris Barnes and Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil "Landphil" Hall. While on tour with Cannabis Corpse in 2013, Barnes and Hall met and kept in touch. Barnes would later lend his vocals to a track on Cannabis Corpse's From Wisdom To Baked. That same year, Hall and Barnes joined forces to pen brand new SIX FEET UNDER tracks. Barnes lauds Hall's take on the SIX FEET UNDER style of death metal and stated that this material was, "where my wheelhouse is - it's where I thrive vocally and lyrically." Crypt Of The Devil stands as a truly collaborative and cross-country effort from a selection of today's finest metal minds, and the result is a refreshing SIX FEET UNDER experience.
Crypt Of The Devil will see release in North America via Metal Blade Records on May 5th, 2015. For a taste of first single, "Open Coffin Orgy," as well as a selection of preorder bundles, go to:metalblade.com/sixfeetunder.
