Six Feet Under Post 'Doomsday' Video Online

SIX FEET UNDER's video for the song "Doomsday" will make its "Headbangers Ball" debut this Saturday, November 10 on MTV2. The clip was shot in August and was directed by Mario D. Framingheddu, who also helmed the group's last video, "Ghosts of the Undead". According to the band, "The concept of the clip is pure fucking insanity on all levels. We were fortunate enough to work with Grady Stiles, a.k.a. Lobsterboy, who plays our main character. This has to be the creepiest clip we've ever filmed, from location, to storyline, to cast. It's totally fucked up! We are really proud of this vid and are really looking forward to the release."

Six Feet Under Drummer Working On New Project

SIX FEET UNDER drummer Greg Gall is currently writing/recording material with a new, yet to be named band. The guitarist spot has been filled by Brian Loyd (www.bloyd.net).

Gall comments: "The entire recording is being done at John and Donald Tardy's (OBITUARY) studio in Tampa. So far, pre-production is under way and has been a very stress free experience. We've really had the luxury of time on our side. It's given us the ability to focus and really put everything we have into each song. John and Donald's input has been priceless in engineering and producing the effort to this point. We're working to record 4 songs prior to filling the bassist and vocal positions, which we look to do around December or early January. Then we'll spend some time shopping for label interest.
This is going to be more than just a side project; it'll be something I think will really go a long way. We've spent a lot of time on this material and what Brian and I have written so far has me really looking forward to adding the remaining pieces of this band and the release of our inaugural CD."

Denial Fiend Recording New Album, "They Rise"

IBEX MOON RECORDS recording artists, DENIAL FIEND, recently entered the studio to record their much anticipated debut album, "They Rise." Guitarist Sam Williams offered the following update:

"Today we entered GL Studios in Brandon, FL to start recording 'They Rise!' We started with tracking drums. Curt 'the shark' Beeson blazed through three tunes before busting one of the studio's Shure SM57's. Indestructible, my ass! We thought it was pretty funny but the studio staff did not. That cut the session short. But not before we got 'Frankenstein Conquers The World,' 'Son of the Creature,' and the title track down to tape. We would have had 'Flesheaters' down (probably the fastest song on the album), except for the fact that you hear the snare mic getting hit and exploding somewhere during the take! Oh well. We'll be working on drums for the rest of the week, and then starting on guitar overdubs next week."

DENIAL FIEND is the Tampa FL based band featuring in it's ranks Terry Butler (SIX FEET UNDER, ex-MASSACRE, ex-DEATH), Kam Lee (ex-MASSACRE, ex-MANTAS), Curt Beeson (NASTY SAVAGE, LOWBROW) and Sam Williams (DOWN BY LAW, PSEUDO HEROES).

DENIAL FIEND's Dead Awakening 7" EP was released on May 21st, 2007 through IBEX MOON RECORDS. The EP consists of two alternate versions of the tracks "They Rise" and "Cover Me in Blood," which will appear on the band's upcoming full-length to be released this Fall. The pressing will be limited to a mere 500 copies and may be ordered now from the IBEX MOON RECORDS website.
