Six Feet Under  


Six Feet Under was formed as a side project for Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes and Obituary guitarist Allen West, and became a full-time band following Barnes' well-publicized departure from Cannibal Corpse, though West is no longer part of the group. The band has carved a decent career for themselves, cranking out American mid-paced death metal with few frills or subleties.

One recent album deserves a mention. Entitled Graveyard Classics 2, the album is a cover of an entire metal album, in this case AC/DC's Back In Black. With the music not too far removed from the original combined with Barnes typical death growl, it's not clear who the target audience is for this. Strange, but at least the band is doing something on its own terms.
