SIX FEET UNDER's Chris Barnes Talks About The Importance Of Supporting The Local Metal Scenes - Video Interview Filmed During The "18 Nights Of Blood Tour"!
With nationwide speculation that the zombie apocalypse is officially upon us, it would only seem appropriate for SIX FEET UNDER's "18 Nights Of Blood Tour" to be taking souls all over North America! The near three-week run of live rituals continues tonight in Portland, Oregon and will be coming to a close on the band's home turf of Tampa, Florida. Blood has been spilled, faces have been eaten and brains have definitely been devoured! No one is safe. For this epic tour, SIX FEET UNDER recruited rhythm guitarist Ola Englund who took the place of ex-Chimaira guitaris Rob Arnold (who retired from touring). Support is provided by Dying Fetus and Revocation.
Here is a video interview we conducted with SIX FEET UNDER's vocalist and Death Metal pioneer Chris Barnes, filmed right before his band took center stage at their monstrous show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. During the interview, Barnes explains the production process and the concept behind 'Undead' and talks about the bands recent lineup changes. He also discusses the 30 years of Metal Blade Records and the importance of supporting the local Metal scenes. Crank it up and thanks for watching!
