SIX FEET UNDER Guitarist's Home Burglarized

The home of SIX FEET UNDER guitarist Steve Swanson was burglarized late Friday night/early Saturday morning (Dec. 5-6). Among items that were stolen were six guitars (two of which were custom, one-of-a-kind KXK guitars) altogether worth thousands of dollars, one Mesa Boogie dual rectifier head, Line 6 Spider III 75 guitar amp, HP laptop computer and more. Police were called and the burglary is under investigation.

Commented Swanson: "I am a father who works hard for everything that I have and need some help to find the worthless waste of human life that would steal things that mean more to others' happiness than my own.

"Death Rituals", the new album from SIX FEET UNDER, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 64. As previously reported, the CD sold around 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The LP debuted at No. 14 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

According to a press release, "Death Rituals" "features 12 tracks of pure American death metal delivering a bludgeoning slab of metal that will leave fans hungering for more. Legendary death metal vocalist Chris Barnes, along with guitarist Steve Swanson, bass legend Terry Butler, and drummer Greg Gall, continue to follow the dark and demented path that merges what Outburn magazine calls 'tried-and-true death groove' with stomach-turning lyrics and themes. 'Death Rituals' saw the band returning to Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida with Chris Carroll at the helm with mixing duties being handled by Toby Wright and the return of SIX FEET UNDER's old friend Bill Metoyer, who recorded the band's CD 'Warpath', helping out with recording of the drums."

"Seed Of Filth", the new video from SIX FEET UNDER, can be viewed below. The clip was filmed on October 31 at Gasoline Alley in Largo, Florida with director Mario D. Framingheddu, who previously worked with the group on the videos for "Ghosts of the Undead" and "Doomsday".

"This is one of our favorite songs from the album, one we are just really stoked on," says Chris Barnes. "We're really proud of this video and how it came out."
