Product Overview

"I don't think I've been too pissed off - it's just the usual me," Six Feet Under main man Chris Barnes asserts with his snaggle-toothed grin. Of course he's referring to the band's latest slab of death, doom and destruction dubbed Commandment, a self-assuring statement of sorts and one that sees Barnes and Co. raising the ante in the realm of extreme underground metal.

It's just another snapshot of the striking Barnes - but this time it's in 2007. "That's it...that's all it is," says Chris. "I don't really analyze things too much, man. I just kind of drew from my imagination."

Remarkably, Commandment was constructed completely from start to finish in the studio, basic tracks and mixing were recorded at Mana Recording in St. Petersburg, Florida, vocal tracks were recorded at The Hit Factory Miami, with long time friend and engineer Chris Carroll. Barnes spearheading the production with the stable lineup of former Death/Massacre bass legend Terry Butler, guitarist Steve Swanson and drummer Greg Gall.

Artist Bio
Six Feet UnderChris Barnes has breathed a little life into death. And along the way he's looked into the mirror and reached a point of self-reflection. Too deep for death metal? - Maybe a little deeper than just six feet under..."It is maturity I guess; it's age, it?s life experience," Barnes ponders. "Those things that you've experienced through your life filter into your system and it all depends how you handle it. People handle tragedy in different ways. People handle good things in different ways. People win the lottery and end up losing it all within a year. Life is a lottery to me and you shouldn't waste it. You should go and do what makes you happy. And for the most part I'm happy with the way my life is. Whether that is from experience or maturity - being able to look back at things and be happy with the way things turned out and the way they are going and what I have left in me. I'm lucky enough to be born and lucky enough to have had a good path I know myself. I feel like I've won a billion dollars this time around. Some people don't get to experience that type of life. I'm lucky and feel blessed that I got to experience what I've experienced this time around."But what lives must die and Barnes still dwells on that final day. "I think probably a lot of pain," he says with a laugh, about the final hours with his heart pumping his commandment of blood. "Grasping for breath in some way. Not being able to fight any longer. It's definitely a depressing thought when you think about your final day in this realm, on this planet. I'm sure not ready to let go of this great life I'm enjoying for this many years. I don't know if I fear that day, as much as I more will miss this daily life and enjoying the things that are here, like basking in the sunlight of this Florida weather," he laughs. "I'm sitting in my backyard looking at orange trees."Some call him twisted, others the personification of death itself, but these days Barnes is looking life straight in the face. So does he actually treasure life? "Yes, I'm very happy," he concludes. "I do treasure life. We're given a great gift by whatever to be here and I think there is a reason behind things. I don't know what that is and that is one of those things that drives me as a writer; that thought, my own human existence and others and the ills of society and the way people treat each other. Mistakes that I've made, things that have slid by and things that have been good to me as well. I feel reflecting on your life is a positive thing. I think going back and thinking about things in the past is really healthy for your energy form. I do cherish life. It's a beautiful thing to be alive. I think the time period that I've lived; from the late '60s through to this century has been a pretty interesting point in time."
