Six Feet Under - Crypt Of The Devil - promo album cover pic - 2015 #663409MO

Crypt Of The Devil, the latest platter of brutality from iconic death metal merchants, SIX FEET UNDER, crushed the Billboard Charts this week debuting at #13 on the Hard Music Chart, #13 on the Heatseekers Chart, #32 on the Independent Albums Chart, #49 on the Rock Albums Chart, #120 on the Physical Albums Chart and #161 on the Top 200 Current Albums Chart!

In Canada, Crypt Of The Devil placed at #33 on the Hard Music Chart and #198 on the Top Sellers Chart. On the Official Top 100 Charts in Europe, the record earned the #42 spot in Germany marking it SIX FEET UNDER‘s highest charting record pillaging Bringer Of Blood‘s German entry at #36 and True Carnage‘s entry at #40. Additionally, Crypt Of The Devil nabbed the #20 spot on the Media Markt/Saturn Charts.

Composed by notorious growl tsar, Chris Barnes with Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil “Landphil” Hall, Crypt Of The Devil serves as SIX FEET UNDER‘s eleventh studio offering and delivers ten venomous odes of murderous death metal barbarity ornamented in Barnes’ haunting prose. Surveying the blackest depths of the human mind, the record is disquieting in both sound, mind and spirit.

Sample the album in all its menacing glory, courtesy of High Times, at THIS LOCATION as well as the band’s Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, The Locust etc.) directed “Open Coffin Orgy” video HERE.

SIX FEET UNDER began as a side project while Barnes – owner of what would become one of the most dominating, groundbreaking and instantly distinguishable voices of the death metal genre – was fronting Cannibal Corpse.  SIX FEET UNDER would eventually become a full-fledged entity in 1995 and now stands among the longest standing and successful acts in death metal history, with all but their debut appearing on a Billboard chart.

Crypt Of The Devil is out now on Metal Blade Records. Various order bundles are available today at

“A solid effort all around and a fun time to be had by all you death metal maniacs.” –
