Florida death/groove metal group, Six Feet Under, have shared their new single, "Ascension", from the band's upcoming 18th album, Killing For Revenge, out May 18th via Metal Blade Records

Guitarist Jack Owen shared the following regarding the new song:

I wrote the music first, with no lyrical ideas in mind. I wanted a small musical phrase that linked the parts together throughout the song, so I wrote a little chord/drum fill thing to segue riffs from the start of the song, through to the end. It turned out sounding like early Possessed, according to listeners. I have an archive of riffs, so I dug for some fast-picking parts that would be easy to sing to."

I had recently found a vinyl box set of works by Shakespeare, and listened to Macbeth. It's pretty violent! So while 'Ascension' isn't a direct interpretation of the story, it's my take on the classic tale of influence, revenge, and the fate you face. As with many of the songs, Chris lent his lyrical talents to make the song that much better.
