Not even two days after Matt DeVries revealed he would be joining Fear Factory comes word his former band, Six Feet Under, have found someone to take over his role.
Seven-string bassist Jeff Hughell, formerly of technical death metal band Brain Drill and death metal band Vile, will be joining the ranks as the newest member of Six Feet Under.
“Six Feet Under is proud to announce our new member, bass player Jeff Hughell,” says frontman and car commercial spokesman Chris Barnes.
“He’s an amazing musician and I have been a fan of his work since first hearing Brain Drill a few years back. We feel with the addition of Jeff, all the puzzle pieces are in place and the killing machine known as Six Feet Under is now a true death metal force to be reckoned with! Prepare to be toe tagged and body bagged.”
For his part, Hughell said he is “honored to be the newest edition to the mighty Sx Feet Under. This band is now a well oiled killing machine with Kevin Talley and myself as the rhythm section, Steve Swanson and Rob Arnold crushing guitars, and, of course, the man himself Chris Barnes killing it on vocals.
“The new material is the heaviest Six Feet Under songs I have ever heard and I can’t wait for the world to get their faces melted clean off by it. I would like to thank Mike Faley, Kelli Malella and the whole Six Feet Under family for thinking of me. It’s going to be one hell of a ride!”
