Today Guitar World is hosting an exclusive premiere of 18 Days, the second official single, from death metal tyrants SIX FEET UNDER. The track comes off the band’s soon-to-be disengaged Undead full-length which is scheduled for a European release on May 18th/21st, 2012 through Metal Blade Records. Offering up 12 tracks of uncompromising, sonic brutality, the record was produced by Mark Lewis (Deicide, Devildriver) and mixed by Jason Suecof (Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy), at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida.
Commented vocalist Chris Barnes: “Creating an album is a lot of work and a lot of focus, but we didn’t really have too many hiccups in the recording. It went really smooth, and it was pretty much the most effortless album we’ve ever tracked. I had a great, great time working on this album; it was so much fun because everything seemed so new again.”
Feast your ears on 18 Days at THIS LOCATION.
Now featuring Barnes, possessor of one of the most dominating voices of the death metal genre, alongside guitarist Rob Arnold (ex- Chimaira), longtime guitarist Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre), bassist Jeff Hughell (ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile), and drummer Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira), SIX FEET UNDER 2012 finds the band recharged and churning out some of the most severe, thought-provoking and downright horrific tunes of their epic discography.
Make sure to visit the band’s official Metal Blade Page for info on limited pre-order options, get a view on the record´s maniacal Dusty Peterson cover art and to check out the first single, Formaldehyde!
