Six Feet Under enters worldwide charts for new album, ‘Torment’

– March 7th, 2017 –

Six Feet Under recently released their 12th studio album, Torment, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered charts worldwide! See below for all positions:

#9 Billboard Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#33 Billboard Independent Albums (USA)
#144 Billboard Top Current Albums (USA)
#44 Top 100 Albums (Germany)

As a new leap in intensity, Torment gives fans plenty of classic Six Feet Under groove, with a much more aggressive approach and blast beats throughout. This is a cantankerous Six Feet Under with absolutely nothing to prove. This is Six Feet Under at their most deadly.

To purchase Torment in various formats, please visit: metalblade.com/sixfeetunder. To preview the album, fans can check out the previously released singles:
–”Sacrificial Kill”: soundcloud.com
–”Schizomaniac” band play-through (by Jeff Hughell and Marco Pitruzzella): youtube.com/watch?v=blcIhkBIDEk
–”The Separation of Flesh from Bone”: youtube.com/watch?v=546BI9k_s-8
–”Exploratory Homicide” guitar and bass play-through (by Jeff Hughell): youtube.com/watch?v=y6mGjqDwIXI

Torment was brought to life by Chris Barnes with bassist/guitarist Jeff Hughell (Brain Drill) shouldering the load of writing the music, along with heralded drummer Marco Pitruzzella (Brain Drill, Anomalous, Sleep Terror). The combination of Barnes’ multi-decade death metal experience and the speed and precision of Hughell and Pitruzzella’s relative youth go a long way to cementing this as a solid foundation for high level death metal. Chris Barnes elaborates: “I’ve been lucky to have a lot of standout albums in my career. That’s only because I’ve had a great many talented writing partners and musicians to collaborate with. Our new album, ‘Torment‘, to me, is one of those albums. Jeff Hughell has provided the flammable material for me to write some explosive lyrics and vocal parts to. I know people always say, ‘this is my best album ever’, and I won’t say that, because everyone has their own favorites, but I do enjoy creating new music, and I feel as though with this one we expressed concisely and to the fullest the duality of our music.”

Six Feet Under line-up:
Chris Barnes – vocals
Jeff Hughell – bass
Marco Pitruzzella – drums
Jack Owen – guitar
Ray Suhy – guitar

“Hello, hello! First of all, I would like to thank all the fans that pre-ordered and purchased our new album ‘Torment‘, and everyone that is enjoying our new work! Thank you very much! Much appreciated!!
And now, without further ado, it is with great pleasure that I announce and introduce to you our new second guitarist, Jack Owen.
As you all know, Jack and I started off together helping form one of the greatest Death Metal bands of all time. Jack and I began talking a few months ago, after his departure from his previous band about joining forces.
From my side of things, it’s going to be amazing to work with Jack again!! We had some intense adventures, to say the least hahaha…and it’s gonna be killer to step on stage with Jack for the first time in over 22 years!!
Jack will be joining SFU for the entire cycle of touring for the new album and beyond!
As you can imagine Six Feet Under is planning a very exciting live set list for you all to freak out over!!!
More info and tour dates coming soon!
Hang on to your skeleton!!
-Barnes”

Jack Owen adds: “I’m super excited to work with my metal brother Chris Barnes and the mighty Six Feet Under! We’ve been talking about writing original material for years, and I hope it gets to that point. It would be amazing. For now, I’m looking forward to touring our asses off. I miss Europe, Canada, South America – hell, I just miss touring! It will be an honor jamming with Chris and his current SFU lineup of talented musicians…and performing with Chris will be like reliving our youth. I can’t wait to see all the SFU and old school Cannibal Corpse fans across the globe!”

Arkaik just issued this announcement online about recruiting new bass player Adam Roethlisberger:

“For the past five years we have had one of the most talented and innovative bass players in the world of technical death metal, previously playing in bands such as Brain Drill, Insanity, Continuum and now carrying the torch in Deeds of Flesh, Ivan Munguia lifted us to new levels in our music and we have had an incredible time sharing the stage and excellent traveling experiences on the many awesome tours we had the privilege of doing in the last five years.

“Its been an unbelievable ride; and so, it is with heavy hearts that we must part with Ivan. We are eternally grateful for all the effort, work, creativity and extraordinary memories. Thank you Ivan ‘The Chupacabra’ Munguia, you are an authentic bad ass MF and world class musician, thanks for everything, man!

We are still great friends and we wish him the the best in all his future endeavors!

“With that said, we are extremely proud to announce Adam Roethlisberger as our new permanent bass player! Adam has been touring with us as a fill-in for the past year and has proven to be an absolute powerhouse on stage and within the inner workings of the band.

Six Feet Under Recruits New Bassist Jeff Hughell

Within days of announcing the departure of Matt DeVries, Six Feet Under has locked in the latest addition to the band’s already heavy and extremely talented lineup. Seven-string bassist Jeff Hughell, formally of the Santa Cruz California technical death metal band Brain Drill and Concord California death metal band Vile, will be joining the ranks as the new Six Feet Under bassist. Check out a video of Jeff shredding on his bass here.

Vocalist Chris Barnes comments: “Six Feet Under is proud to announce our new member, bass player Jeff Hughell. He’s an amazing musician and I have been a fan of his work since first hearing Brain Drill a few years back. We feel with the addition of Jeff, all the puzzle pieces are in place and the killing machine known as Six Feet Under is now a true death metal force to be reckoned with! Prepare to be toe tagged and body bagged.”

Jeff Hughell adds, “I am honored to be the newest edition to the mighty Six Feet Under. This band is now a well oiled killing machine with Kevin Talley and myself as the rhythm section, Steve Swanson and Rob Arnold crushing guitars, and of course the man himself Chris Barnes killing it on vocals. The new material is the heaviest Six Feet Under songs I have ever heard and I can’t wait for the world to get their faces melted clean off by it. I would like to thank Mike Faley, Kelli Malella and the whole Six Feet Under family for thinking of me. It’s going to be one hell of a ride!”
