Six Feet Under loses two members
Well this is unfortunate. According to Metalsucks, drummer Greg Gall and bassist Terry Butler have simultaneously decided to leave Tampa death 'n' rollers Six Feet Under, leaving only guitarist Steve Swanson and notorious ex-Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes. There's no word on what Gall is going to be doing with himself now, but Butler has been jamming with Obituary for the past year or so, and as such will now be joining them full time. Going straight from Six Feet Under to Obituary? Sounds like a sweet deal to me, good on ya man. Luckily, none of this means that SFU will be disbanding. Barnes has already mentioned that they've been working with someone else for the past few months, so everything should proceed as normal for the band. And let's face it, even if they didn't already have someone lined up, finding a competent replacement would take all of about five minutes. Six Feet Under's cool and all, but to say their music is simplistic would be quite the understatement. But then again they ARE a death 'n' roll band, so that's kinda the whole point. Oh well, the point is they're not breaking up, so I won't get broken up about it (har). All the same, losing members of a band is never easy, so horns up to 'em. Leave your thoughts below, and stay tuned for more.
