A Scholarly Analysis Of Six Feet Under's "Murdered In The Basement"

Chris Barnes's post-Cannibal Corpse career has been a wild ride. He formed Six Feet Under, he was in a fantastic commercial for a local car dealership, and I guess that's it. Things have been rough on the musical front for a few decades now, as you might expect from someone whose favorite pastimes include punching superior vocalists in the face, and Chris has now achieved the impossible by making music exactly as disgusting as the lyrics he so expertly composed during his tenure in Cannibal Corpse. I have so far reviewed five Six Feet Under albums for Metal Storm, and the highest rating I gave any was a 4.8. Recently, however, I realized that no one has ever given Chris the credit he deserves for 6FU's magnum opus, "Murdered In The Basement," which, believe it or not, is actually a very clever metaphor for the Russian Revolution.

Not Texas either, you fearsome don't-treaders. We are of course talking about Florida. Strap on those camo boots, bring a buck knife along, some jerky perhaps, and journey with me through tales of live jamz in the land of alligators, old people whose driving licenses need to be revoked, and drunk teenagers on Spring Break.

70000 Tons Of Metal 2017 - Day Four: Wait, It's Over Already? The Grand Finale

Ugh, the last day of the cruise was upon us and despite trying to watch all the bands I was interested in, I missed a few. Seriously, one can plan ahead all they want, but due to the fact that there is so much going on, all the time, even the best laid out plan is easily derailed. One huge factor is definitely that there are tons of people from all over the world on 70000 Tons Of Metal, and over the years I met a great deal of awesome people and the cruise is usually the only time to hang out.
