Obituary Parts Ways With Longtime Bassist

In a recent interview with Tomb Of The Opinionated, Obituary singer John Tardy confirmed the rumour that the band has parted ways with bass player Frank Watkins, who has been performing with the latest incarnation of Gorgoroth.

Tardy states: "Frank is no longer in the band and Terry Butler (Six Feet Under) will be doing all the shows that he can with us. Right now we are happy with that and if Terry’s schedule does not allow him to play with us we can always lean on Stever DiGiorgio (Sadus) or Kenny Andrews."

He also gave an update on the band's next studio album, which will be the first to be recorded without Watkins since 1989's, "Slowly We Rot.": "We have been doing so much traveling that is has been hard to get much done but, we have managed to get some songs started. We now have some time set aside to get some writing done so we will know more in the next couple of months. We are in no hurry and are going to take our time and enjoy the writing and recording process!"

Six Feet Under Criticizes President Obama

American death metal veterans Six Feet Under has posted a message online regarding the recent offshore drilling explosion, which is being called the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The message reads as follows:

"Didn't 'we' all think this 'President' was supposed to be more aware and was going to do more to rebuild our great country, and help pull us all out of the hole we are in? Looks like he's putting us all in a bigger hole by not taking action and doing something about stopping the oil leak that is destroying The Gulf Of Mexico and destroying our country.

"Please, if you drive... boycott the fuck out of BP! Do not buy their fuel. They can stop the oil leak. They are a greedy, evil company that doesn't care about any of us, or this planet. We can do something by taking money out of their pocket, by not buying their product. More...

Six Feet Under Posts Metallica Cover Online

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...

Six Feet Under Reveals New Album Cover Art

Tampa, FL groove death metal Six Feet Under has revealed the cover art for their 3rd installment of the band's cover series, "Graveyard Classics 3," due out on Metal Blade Records on January 15th/18th 2010.

Here's what the godfather of gore and death Chris Barnes has to say 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.

Six Feet Under Posts New Cover Song Online

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...
