The original post

Posted by Dangerboner on 20.04.2007 at 03:07
Since Six Feet Under just released their new album, Commandment, I decided to create a thread for them. As you all know, Six Feet Under is fronted by ex-Cannibal Corpse growler Chris Barnes, but their lineup has other well-known musicians, such as Terry Butler (ex-Death, ex-Massacre) and Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre). They even had Allen West (ex-Obituary) in their lineup for a short period of time.

I own Bringer of Blood, Haunted, and Maximum Violence. I think it is universally agreed that Bringer of Blood is a massive pile of shit, but their older albums were a lot better. Haunted is probably my favorite album by them, most notably because of Allen West's catchy guitar riffs.

I heard Commandment in full last night and I'm relieved that they are back making somewhat respectable music. I think Commandment needs a few more hooks in the songs because it gets very repetitive at times, but overall I'm fairly satisfied with it. Even though Chris doesn't sound as good as he used to, he still sounds like a fucking monster that could kill Corpsegrinder any day.

So, what do you guys think?

I think "pretentious" is a definite potential winner for the "most abused word in metal" thread. Mainly because everyone has their own personal definitions of what it means.

Commerciality, Pristine production and accessibility are a few of the things right in old school death metal then?
who said that groove/death metal = old school death ?
listen to Dead Congregation then you'll see what modern old school sounding death metal is supposed to be.

old school death metal is full of grooves. They make you move. I am not syaing SFU are good bu they play old school dm along the lines of the Florida bands of the time and New York bands as well. And old school dm bands are accessible.
Pristine production and accesibility have nothing to do whatsoever with being pretentious.
I guess you should look up the meaning of pretentious in a dictionary. Cause pretentious means the following:
pretentious adjective
/prɪˈtent .ʃəs/ adj
trying to appear or sound more important or clever than you are, especially in matters of art and literature

I beg to differ. Chris's vocals in SFU sound kind of weak, especially in later releases. In CC, he was more guttural and overall better, IMO.

chris's vocals on eaten back to life are his best cc vocal sound. in butchered, tomb and bleeding, the vocals sound like a toilet flushing imo. with SFU, the vocals are more defined and clearer to me.

I don't think CC lyrics would fit with a clearer growl... wait, actually, that'd be nice... but really, Chris's growls in SFU are just kind of weak.

dont get me wrong, the chris cc voice is goolish and different, but george fisher is amazing with cc. chris sfu just fits the groove death riffs much better.

Cannibal Corpse and Entombed don't actually harden your ears much, but whatever.

thats a genre made by Pantera and the likes...
old school death metal and accessiblilty? you got to be kidding me! eh man?
depends on a specific band, but not totally as accessible as todays wigger shits.

i'm sure i've seen SFU's high-budget video clips broadcasted on mainstream satellite channels like MTV or VIVA...
their music is also bland, with too much emphasis on the recording proccess and crystal clear production to avoid sounding harsh to the untrained ear. no soul of real old school DM can be felt from SUF's wankery.
their cover albums are also some of the absolute craps i've heard so far.

fuck yeah, that'll make them pretencious, gaining the attention of so much fans thus making them think they're so great (another example is Suffocation).
that also reminds me of Judas Iscariot and Nargaroth, talking shit on stage about anyother BM band, while there are bands far above these poser bastards, or Armagedda leaved the scene disturbed by it's shittiness, while they were of the ruiners themselves. or even Dark Funeral or 1349, who think are 'true bm' and also saviors of the black metal genre, for instance.

What? No way! 6 Feet Under are the best death metal band of all time, (which they are not!) compared to Waking The Cadaver. At least 6 Feet stuff is catchy and they've done some memorable songs. WTC just make a lot of noise. lol

Actually, Exhorder created it, but Pantera popularized it. And you are wrong, it can refer to both the genre and the rhythmic feel known as a groove.

Here I was referring to the genre not the rhythmic move or feel or whatever it is.
I read about it on Wiki.

Groove metal is a subgenre of heavy metal.[1] It was often used to describe Pantera[3] and Exhorder.

Pantera's Cowboys from Hell album from 1990 was described as "groundbreaking" and "blueprint-defining" for the groove metal genre.[5] Tommy Victor of Prong claims that the attitude of groove metal came from Bad Brains.[6]

Geoffrey Himes of The Washington Post described the music in 1998, as a "marriage of hard rock with dance music and hip-hop"; and stated about groove metal: "This gives the loud, crunchy guitars a black-flavored dance pulse and gives the wailing vocals the punchy rhythms of rap and funk. The masters of this new sub-genre is Korn."[1] Other groove metal bands have incorporated thrash metal[7], hardcore punk[8], and industrial music[9]. Ian Christe credits Sepultura's Chaos A.D. and Pantera for creating the death metal-derived music of groove metal and influencing later groups in the genre during the 1990s
