_Floridian Death / Groove Metal lords Six Feet Under get brutal as on the 1st May, the premier horror portal Bloody Disgusting hosted the band's latest "18 Days" lyric video, the venomous prayer comes from their upcoming soul-destroying album 'Undead', set for a UK release fate of May 21st, 2012 through Metal Blade Records.
On the album 'Undead', vocalist and lyricist Chris Barnes revisits topics that will be familiar to fans, he states: "The hypocrisies of daily life, things that affect us that spawn aggression, loneliness, sadness, there's a lot of emotions going on across the record, and I guess that the dark horror that humans cause is my niche,".
However, while Barnes has a very clear vision for his craft, he is always excited by the interpretations of his songs by those who listen to them, feeding on the emotional investment they put in. "I love it when people tell me what they've got from the music and the lyrics. It's like being an artist, you put the painting up on the wall – youknow what it is, but sometimes it's a little abstract and someone sees something else in it, and that's the biggest compliment to me. That I'm able to get inside someone's head and they actually give thought to something presented to them is inspiring to me too, and something I always want to be able to do with this band."
