Tampa, Florida death metal band Six Feet Under has posted their cover of Metallica's "The Frayed Ends Of Sanity" on their MySpace page. The cover comes off of their latest album, "Graveyard Classics 3," which was recorded at D.O.I. Digital Audio in Tampa, FL, was mixed at Audiohammer Studios by Mark Lewis, and was produced by Chris Barnes.
Chris Barnes comments about the band's latest chapter in the Graveyard Classics chain, "We went about picking the tracks for this installment of Graveyard Classics by really just trying to search out songs from early on in our musical upbringing, as well as tracks from when we were just fans of heavy music, before we started playing in a band. Once again choosing songs that have really stuck with us over the years, also choosing the songs that we felt would sound interesting when played in the SFU ‘death groove' style."
"Through the years of doing covers, many of our fans have inquired about us covering a Slayer or a Metallica song. It was really something we wanted to do for some time, those two bands being our biggest influences, as well as influencing a generation of death metal musicians. To sum it up…this is a tribute to honor the great teachers that have influenced us as well as the world of metal we all belong to. We hope our fans will enjoy." More...

Tampa, Florida groove laden death metal band SIX FEET UNDER has posted the first single from their new cover album, "Graveyard Classics 3," on their MySpace page. The first track is a cover of Slayer's track "At Dawn They Sleep" off of the groups "Hell Awaits" album. "Graveyard Classics 3" will be released on January 19th 2010 through Metal Blade Records
Vocalist Chris Barnes comments on the track, "We chose the track ‘At Dawn They Sleep' to be the first single off of Graveyard Classics 3. We've wanted to do a Slayer song for a while and lots of our fans have been requesting that we do a Slayer song as well; ‘At Dawn They Sleep' really seemed like it would lend itself to our style. And to be honest I've always preferred the early Slayer stuff, ‘Hell Awaits' and prior. I think the production and song structure of their early recordings are raw and in your face, in a very dynamic way, and that's the type of band SFU is, so it seemed to fit on a bunch of different levels. We fucking love Slayer!" More...
