Six Feet Under’s New Track “Amputator” Will Have You Horny for Gore

Death metal bands come and go, but Six Feet Under remain. Created by vocalist Chris Barnes after his departure from the founding line-up of Cannibal Corpse, the band have progressed through various incarnations and styles, but have always remained dedicated to horror-fueled death metal (and, on occasion, AC/DC covers). Now, Six Feet Under have returned with a new single titled “Amputator,” and it’s pretty much everything you want from them.

What may surprise longtime fans at first is that “Amputator” is not the downtuned zombie stomp that old-school fans may associate with Six Feet Under. Instead, the track throws haymakers right out of the gate, moving forward with thrash metal speed that manages to maintain an OSDM shred throughout. Of course, the track wouldn’t be complete without Barnes grunting about human carnage, which “Amputator” provides in spades. It keeps up with a tradition among metalheads with this band — you may fall off of SFU for an album or two, but then a track comes out that gets its hooks in you, and suddenly you’re digging through your closet, looking for that old Warpath shirt.
