Six Feet Under - Dead and Buried (Living Life in the Grave)

My fav death metal band return with probably their best video yet!

Six Feet Under fronted by former Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes for years have been making some of the most brutal death metal tracks anywhere, but seemed to have had a change of heart in the past few years as they've switched from singing about death and gore to joining the ranks of many other bands and singing against the war in Iraq. Some might scream "Sell Out!", but I don't think it matters as long as the music is good.

This simple video sees the band jamming in what looks like a dark abandoned warehouse, with shots of some old lady and some kids watching news reports and footage of the war going on. Simple, yet effective and matches the slow, heavy grind of the song.
The lyrics are the usual cookie monster growled flare, where you need to listen to the song a few times to figure them out, but at least SFU aren't as bad as Broken Hope, who to this day I still can't figure out what the guy was barking even while reading the lyric sheets!

Like I said above, this is probably the best SFU video I've ever seen so far, and highly recommend it.
Video Rating: ****
