Six Feet Under vocalist Chris Barnes has posted the following update online, announcing the addition of Chimaira's Rob Arnold to the group as its new rhythm guitarist.

"Just wanted to give you a Six Feet Under band update and let you all know that we would like to announce our good friend Rob Arnold will be joining Six Feet Under as second rhythm guitarist for upcoming touring duties, as well as collaborating on the new CD. I couldn't be happier about the new songs and lineup! Rob and myself have been collaborating on new songs along with the band's new drummer, Kevin Talley, for the past few months. We are all feeling really excited about the band's future, and the raw intensity of the songs that we have created together so far. This is the heaviest most exciting material that I've worked on since 'The Bleeding' [1994 Cannibal Corpse record], and I'm stoked that Rob will be helping out creating this CD with us! We've all known each other for a while and we're really looking forward to continue writing the new CD and future tours. We are committed to taking Six Feet Under to the next level of brutality!"

I always thought Rob could pass as a Death Metal guitarist.
Would love to see how well he does in this band. Hopefully it makes them sound better because Six Feet Under sounds pretty crappy to me.

That's because Chimaira is a death metal band, sort of.
It really wanna hear this new album. Because now with Rob Arnold of Chimaira, Kevin Talley from Daath, and Barnes from Cannibal Corpse I'm curious to see how this death metal super group is gonna sound. I hope Arnold gets to throw in some sort of lead work in his rhythm sections. He really is a great player.
