Chris Barnes

Our first interview* for the site is with Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under. He was also a founding member of Cannibal Corpse & was a member of Finnish death crew, Torture Killer. We catch up with Chris following the release of Graveyard Classics 3 to get his views on the current state of death metal.

Leave the Hall: So Chris, your career has spanned almost 3 decades now. Six Feet Under have got 8 studio albums plus 3 Graveyard Classics releases. You also did the first 4 Corpse albums, numerous guest slots on other albums, toured the world & were one of the first people to use the now famous “death growl”. What are you most proud of?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: You got more than a little flak for the track One Bullet Left featuring Ice-T, fueded with Seth Putnam of Anal Cunt, left the world’s biggest death metal band & recieved mixed reviews for every SFU release. What’s the biggest regret of your career?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Are you planning on touring the UK any time soon?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Have you listened to the latest Corpse release, Evisceration Plague? Erik Rutan produced it & he produced the SFU album, Commandment. How do you think the two albums compare? Why didn’t you use Rutan for the new SFU?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Recently, we’ve seen a massive shift in the death metal scene towards technicality & speed. There’s also been a huge rise in the number of bands mixing death with other genres. What are your thoughts on the current deathcore fad? How do you think these changes will affect a band like SFU who eschew the tech side of things?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Any bands you feel deserve a wider audience? Any underground recommendations?

Chris Barnes: Duh Duh Duh Duh!!

Leave the Hall: Anything else you wanna add, Chris?

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Thanks for your time! It was great to meet you.

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: That’s us done now, Chris.

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: Ok.

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

Leave the Hall: See you later, Chris.

Chris Barnes: Snakes!!!

* Disclaimer: No, we didn’t really interview Chris Barnes. This is, however, exactly how it would have gone.
