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."

"Doomsday" video credits:

* Director: Mario D. Framingheddu
* Director of Photography: Kyle Walling
* Producer: Rachel Murray

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."

"We filmed a new video clip this past weekend for the song 'Doomsday' from our latest release 'Commandment'. We once again worked with director Mario D.

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.

In a recent interview with Mark Carras of RockMyMonkey.com, SIX FEET UNDER bassist Terry Butler stated about the upcoming CD, "I would say, if I had to describe the new style, it would be 'Maximum Violence' meets 'Haunted'. . . I'm really psyched about it. I really liked it. We had a good writing experience. We wrote all the music in the studio and it just flowed through. It's pretty upbeat the whole time, but there's some really catchy, groovy riffs. I think SFU fans are going to like it a lot, especially some of the older, the people who've been around for a long time listening to us, it will satisfy them. The last couple records we've kind of, I don't want to say gotten off our style, but we've always tried to be a little bit different. We didn't want to always just put ten records that sounded like 'Haunted'. So we just kind of, I don't want to say experimented, but we just kind of messed around a little bit, certain styles, but I think this is kind of back to what our fans would expect."

Terry Butler Discusses SFU and Denial Fiend

Mark Carras of Rock My Monkey recently conducted an interview with Six Feet Under and Denial Fiend bassist Terry Butler.

Rock My Monkey: How are you doing today, Terry?

Terry Butler: Good. How are you?

Rock My Monkey: Doing great. First off, why don’t you fill everyone in on how Denial Fiend came together, and how long has this band been in the planning stages?

Terry Butler: Okay. Denial Fiend came together actually through another side project earlier who had some of the same band members. Kam Lee, was on there, Sam Williams, myself, and a couple other people. It was more of a like a stoner rock kind of thing, but out of the ashes of that, Denial Fiend came to be. The band’s been in existence for about a year. It’s me, Kam Lee on vocals, Sam Williams guitars, Curtis Beeson on drums. Like I said, it’s been about a year since we’ve been together. There’s about ten songs written. We have a full album’s worth of material. We’re just rehearsing, and writing songs right now.

Rock My Monkey: Cool. Now, you just recently signed a deal with Ibex Moon Records. How did you guys find each other, and why were they the right label to launch Denial Fiend?

Terry Butler: Well, basically, we actually just made a press release that said that we were actually a band in existence. Ibex Moon contacted us right off the bat. They really wanted to work with us. We looked around some, but we just felt that this was the best place for us because it’s a new, up and coming label, and it’s got really good distribution. It’s John McEntee also in Incantation. He really knows the scene. We just felt this would be the best place for us.

Rock My Monkey: Cool. Is that going to get the band full distribution, and how hard will it be for the fans to find the record when it comes out?

Terry Butler: It shouldn’t be very hard at all. It’s got full distribution in Europe and in America. It shouldn’t be a hard thing at all to find.

Denial Fiend Signs With Ibex Moon Records

Ibex Moon Records has inked a deal with the Tampa, Fla., band Denial Fiend, the new project that unites vocalist Kam Lee (Massacre, Death) with bassist Terry Butler (Massacre, Death, Six Feet Under), drummer Curtis Beeson (Nasty Savage), and Sam Williams (Down By Law, Pseudo Heroes).

“I'm proud to work with these metal and death metal pioneers and I look forward to Denial Fiend putting out a great release,” said Ibex Moon owner John McEntee. “I feel that they will appeal to old school and newer metal fans alike.”

The band’s debut album, which will also mark Lee’s first full-length recording in over a decade, is planned for a June 2007 release. The album is tentatively titled “They Rise.”

“I think Denial Fiend will surprise a lot of people,” said Butler. “This is not a ‘flash-in-the-pan’ side project. It’s a band that is dedicated and ready to bring metal to the masses!”

Denial Fiend draws on elements of its members’ individual pasts to create an edgy yet classic sound of its own. A demo recording of the track “Cover Me in Blood” is available on Denial Fiend’s MySpace page.

Chris Barnes Checks In Following European Tour

Just checking in with you all- especially our European fans, to thank you for your undying dedication. We had an incredible time on our most recent tour of Europe !

First off - Wacken- what a killer festival!! It was completely surreal to stand on that stage in front of the biggest crowd of my career and witness the brutality that took place that afternoon, unfuckingbelievable! Thank you all so very much!!!

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better ...there was Party San, probably the best show we have played in 2 years, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making us feel so welcome that night! I would also like to thank Jarne, the festival promoter for all of his help, and hospitality-and for giving us the opportunity of headlining the show -we had a killer time-you rule bro! And while I'm at it I'd like to take the time to thank Michael Trengert and all at Metal Blade Europe for all of their help and hard work, on this tour and over the years, without them we wouldn't be where we are at right now -and we appreciate it fully!! We would also like to give thanks to all of our fans who came out to all of the shows in between the festival dates, we were pleasantly surprised with the turn out and had a great time, and we will see you this December for The X-Mass festivals!!

As for upcoming shows... we are currently getting ready for the onset of the Monsters of Death Tour here in the States with Krisiun, Decapitated, and Abysmal Dawn. We are really stoked to have such a killer line up on this tour and hope all of you U.S. SFU fans get fucking brutal like it was the last death metal concert on the planet- because we are totally ready to KILL!

See you all soon, and thanks again Europe !!! –Barnes

Heavy Metal Gets Socially Conscious

"Heavy Metal Gets Socially Conscious" is an AP article that's been making its rounds through the papers around the country. It's good for heavy metal to get some exposure like this, much less in a positive light for a change. Here are some excerpts:

"Heavy metal singer Chris Barnes didn't know what people would think of "Amerika the Brutal," an anti-war song he wrote after his cousin deployed to Iraq in 2003."

"He heard a number of complaints, but also received supportive e-mails from American troops in the war zone."

"It kind of sent a shiver up my spine because those are the guys I didn't want to offend by sounding anti-war," said Barnes, vocalist for the death metal band Six Feet Under."

"Other metal bands are finding similar inspiration."

"Lamb of God's albums criticize American foreign policy. Cattle Decapitation are ardent vegetarians who use explicit album covers and songs like "Veal and the Cult of Torture" to condemn the meat industry. Serj Tankian of System of a Down is co-founder of a nonprofit organization that works on social issues."
