Six Feet Under - Debut 'Ascension' Track & Lyric Video

Today, Six Feet Under present their latest new single, "Ascension." The latter comes by way of the band’s upcoming fourteenth studio album, Killing For Revenge, set for release on May 10th through Metal Blade Records.

Elaborates Jack Owen of today’s "Ascension" single, "I wrote the music first, with no lyrical ideas in mind. I wanted a small musical phrase that linked the parts together throughout the song, so I wrote a little chord/drum fill thing to segue riffs from the start of the song, through to the end. It turned out sounding like early Possessed, according to listeners. I have an archive of riffs, so I dug for some fast-picking parts that would be easy to sing to.

"I had recently found a vinyl box set of works by Shakespeare, and listened to Macbeth," he continues, "It's pretty violent! So while "Ascension" isn't a direct interpretation of the story, it's my take on the classic tale of influence, revenge, and the fate you face. As with many of the songs, Chris lent his lyrical talents to make the song that much better."
