Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics
So to say the American contender of this month's "Who covers his influences better in Death Metal"-competition is SIX FEET UNDER, the album "Graveyard Classics". Just like the Danes of ILLDISPOSED they are showing their roots and covering songs of them.

The musical bandwidth is a good lot broader with SIX FEET UNDER, from Jimi Hendrix over SAVATAGE and AC/DC to VENOM and the DEAD KENNEDYS you can find them all. Musically they sometimes are a more close to the originals than ILLDISPOSED, but still the heavier guitars and of course Chris Barnes' voice are giving them just the difference they need.

Highlights are "TNT" from AC/DC, where especially the chorus is great, "California Uber Alles" (DEAD KENNEDYS) as Hardcore/Punk-Death, the great "Smoke On The Water" (which gets a completely new sound here and sounds just plainly brilliant), "Blackout" (SCORPIONS) with ARMORED SAINT/ANTHRAX-singer John Bush as support and VENOM's "In League With Satan", which starts with some backward-part before we descend into hell itself.

Compared to ILLDISPOSED, SIX FEET UNDER are the winners, because they feature more different styles and the factor of brilliance is a tad higher!
