Death metal behemoths SIX FEET UNDER recently returned home from the victorious 18 Nights Of Blood Tour. The short but ravaging trek marked the first live outing featuring newly recruited rhythm guitarist Ola Englund as well as bassist Jeff Hughell [ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile] and systematically bludgeoned all in its path. Comments vocalist Chris Barnes: “Had a great time on the 18 Nights Of Blood Tour with Dying Fetus and Revocation! Thanks to everyone who made the tour a success! Good times! Dale yeah!” Check out Revolver’s live photo coverage of the band’s sold-out Whiskey A Go-Go show HERE.

SIX FEET UNDER released their latest Undead full-length to North American ears via Metal Blade on May 22. Dubbed “…the best thing SFU have recorded since Maximum Violence…,” by Decibel, “…an album on which this new level of musicianship adds value without tarnishing SIX FEET UNDER‘s legacy of brutality,” by Outburn, and “…an unearthly noise and glorious in its heaving absurdity,” by Terrorizer, Undead topped Billboard charts upon its first week of release and continues to sear the ears of fans and critics internationally.
