Legendary death metal band Six Feet Under return with their explosive seventeenth full-length, Nightmares Of The Decomposed. Comprised of twelve tracks, it is a defining statement, making it very clear that more than twenty-five years into their career they remain at the forefront of the genre. Dynamic, heavy as hell, catchy, and uncompromising, it is everything that the band's longtime faithful have come to expect from the deadly unit, and is clearly the product of a lot of hard work.
Initially formed as a side project for Chris Barnes, the original vocalist of death metal progenitors Cannibal Corpse, Six Feet Under became the frontman's sole focus in 1995, coinciding with the release of their debut, Haunted. Since then the band has been prolific, dropping twelve albums of original material interspersed with collections of covers that they put their unique spin on, the Graveyard Classics series. Over the years, several members have passed through the band's ranks with only Barnes remaining from the original lineup, but this has not led to any wavering in the quality of their output. In 2020 the lineup is rounded out by guitarists Jack Owen and Ray Suhy, bassist Jeff Hughell and drummer Marco Pitruzzella, and what is perhaps most notable about Nightmares Of The Decomposed is that it reunites Barnes with fellow Cannibal Corpse alum Owen.
