SIX FEET UNDER’s fourteenth studio album, “Killing For Revenge”, was released on Friday, February 10th via Metal Blade Records. In celebration of the record’s release, the band dropped a lyric video for “When The Moon Goes Down In Blood,” created by Reino Aedmäe who also produced visualizers for “Zodiac” and “Blood Of The Zombie” from the band’s “Nightmares Of The Decomposed” offering.

Comments legendary frontman Chris Barnes of “When The Moon Goes Down In Blood”: “I think all of the songs on the album deal with revenge in one way or another. That’s why the album’s called ‘Killing For Revenge’. Each song has that as a theme in it, whether it be man against man, or nature against man. There’s a macabre core theme and it’s more straightforward as far as lyrics go and the tone of the storyline really being a lot more horror, and generally speaking, about killing people. My mood is always really just diving into my own imagination and kind of a meditative state of concentrating and listening to the music and letting it lead me into a storyline.”

Adds guitarist Jack Owen: “This was the last song written for the album. Chris suggested something ‘early 1990s.’ I created drum beats reminiscent of early IMMOLATION or SUFFOCATION, where the tempo was somewhere between a thrash beat and a blast beat. Back then we wrote guitar riffs that were simple diminished lines with tons of palm muting, just crunching along with the snare drum. The music was written pretty quickly and I sent it off to Chris and he replied. ‘I got this!’ Boy, did he! It turned out to be possibly the best song on the album. A brutal old-school vibe.”

“Killing For Revenge” marks the second album that Barnes and guitarist Jack Owen (ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE) have created together since reuniting for 2020’s “Nightmares Of The Decomposed”. Owen also produced “Killing For Revenge”. “We worked well together in CANNIBAL CORPSE“, recalls Barnes. “I loved him to death as a friend and a musician, so I’m really comfortable giving him the reins because I just have such great respect for him as an artist.”

The songs on “Killing For Revenge” dive headfirst into subjects that are as gleefully vile, graphic, and downright grotesque as you might dream of from a Barnes/Owen project. After all, the two men were vital cogs in the CANNIBAL CORPSE band that released such delightfully offensive Death Metal classics as “Butchered At Birth” and “Tomb Of The Mutilated”. SIX FEET UNDER also recorded a cover of NAZARETH’s “Hair Of The Dog,” which appears on all formats of “Killing For Revenge” with the exception of vinyl.

“Killing For Revenge”, which features a guest appearance by guitarist Jason Suecof on “Neanderthal,” was mixed and mastered by Chaz Najjar at Badlands Recording in Denver, Colorado.
