Six Feet Under Streaming New Single “Ascension”


Six Feet Under have released the track “Ascension” as the second single from their fourteenth studio album, “Killing For Revenge“. The death metal outfit have a May 10th release date on deck for the latter via Metal Blade Records.

Guitarist Jack Owen commented on this latest preview of the record:

“I wrote the music first, with no lyrical ideas in mind. I wanted a small musical phrase that linked the parts together throughout the song, so I wrote a little chord/drum fill thing to segue riffs from the start of the song, through to the end. It turned out sounding like early Possessed, according to listeners. I have an archive of riffs, so I dug for some fast-picking parts that would be easy to sing to.

I had recently found a vinyl box set of works by Shakespeare, and listened to Macbe. It’s pretty violent! So while ‘Ascension’ isn’t a direct interpretation of the story, it’s my take on the classic tale of influence, revenge, and the fate you face. As with many of the songs, Chris lent his lyrical talents to make the song that much better.”
