Erik M. : Since 1995 Six feet Under stands for tasty rancid, auditable slaughter offal. ‘Torment’ is the twelfth release this old school death metal horde which makes the blood pump at maximum speed. All familiar Six Feet Under elements, groove, massive breaks, blunt vocals and a healthy dose of blast beat can be found on ‘Torment’. The life feel stands out on this new SFU album. Barnes and bass/guitarplayer Jeff Hughell (Brain Drill) are responsible for the tunes on ‘Torment’. The influence of Hughell is clearly present and resulted in a diverse old school smasher, ready to devour in one go! Drummer Marco Pitruzzella (Brain Drill, Anomalous, Sleep Terror) recorded the songs in one take, this gives the tunes an organic feel, while Barnes convinces again with his recognisable brute vocal skills. The mix between the typical Six Feet Under influences and the faster parts sounds effective and aggressive. The opening track ‘Sacrificial Kill’ grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. The bass sound clanks and stomps you right in the face. After a less convincing predecessor, Six Feet Under is back on track with great tunes such as ‘Skeleton’, ‘In The Process Of Decomposing’ or ‘Exploratory Homicide’. Recommended!
