Six Feet Under's fourteenth album, Killing For Revenge, hits shelves today via Metal Blade Records.

To mark the occasion, the band unveils a lyric video for "When The Moon Goes Down In Blood." Produced by Reino Aedmäe, who also crafted visualizers for "Zodiac" and "Blood Of The Zombie" from Six Feet Under's previous album, Nightmares Of The Decomposed.

Frontman Chris Barnes shared the following:

When The Moon Goes Down In Blood," "I think all of the songs on the album deal with revenge in one way or another. That's why the album's called Killing For Revenge. Each song has that as a theme in it, whether it be man against man, or nature against man. There's a macabre core theme and it's more straightforward as far as lyrics go and the tone of the storyline really being a lot more horror, and generally speaking, about killing people. My mood is always really just diving into my own imagination and kind of a meditative state of concentrating and listening to the music and letting it lead me into a storyline.

 

Guitarist Jack Owen added:

This was the last song written for the album. Chris suggested something 'early 1990s.' I created drum beats reminiscent of early Immolation or Suffocation, where the tempo was somewhere between a thrash beat and a blast beat. Back then we wrote guitar riffs that were simple diminished lines with tons of palm muting, just crunching along with the snare drum. The music was written pretty quickly and I sent it off to Chris and he replied. 'I got this!' Boy, did he! It turned out to be possibly the best song on the album. A brutal old-school vibe.

This album so far is way worse foe me than the last ones. Jack Owen sucks and is way overrated as a song writer. Chris's strongpoint is always mid paced material so these thrashier tunes don't work ass well.

No Allen West. No care.
