Undeath Share “Doom”-Inspired Lyric Video For New Song “Necrobionics”

Undeath have premiered a “Doom”-inspired lyric video for their new song “Necrobionics.” This track is from the band’s new album “It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave,” which will be released on April 22. Guitarist Kyle Beam commented:

“‘Necrobionics’ is the defacto mosh track off It’s Time…. When we drop this one live, it’s going to leave the pit looking much like the chorus says, with ‘Piles of death, corpses en masse.’ The track’s lyrics draws a lot of aesthetic influence from the early Doom/Quake games, with the video paying homage to some of my favorite pastimes.

Undeath Premiere “Head Splattered In Seven Ways” Music Video

Undeath have premiered an age-restricted video for their new song “Head Splattered In Seven Ways.” This track is from the band’s new album “It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave,” which will be released on April 22.

Guitarist Kyle Beam commented:

“‘Head Splattered in Seven Ways‘ is all about the number 7: There’s seven syllables in the title, it’s the seventh song on the record, the verse and chorus are in seven AND the bridge section repeats seven times. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, lyrically the song is centered around a deranged interrogation scene with a murderer that possesses psionic powers – the kind capable of making heads explode and splatter in…well, you do the math. Simply put, this is an odd-time death metal banger that you’ll snap your neck trying to headbang along to. Enjoy!”

Vocalist Alex Jones added:

“I’m really stoked about ‘Head Splattered in Seven Ways‘. It’s definitely one of the crazier, more technically intense songs on the record, so I’m excited that we’re getting it out right after ‘Rise from the Grave‘, which is by far one of the most straight forward tracks we’ve ever written. Both songs showcase the number one thing that Undeath is about, albeit in very different ways: the power of a dope riff.

Also, the video that we shot with Errick Easterday is supremely fucked up. Shoutout to McCanns Local Meats, Rochester’s premiere meat emporium, for letting us use their space (and to Mr. McCann himself for starring in the video!) If you’re ever in the area, make sure you swing by for a great banh mi and a cup of coffee.”

Undeath’s Alex Jones On Six Feet Under Frontman Chris Barnes: “He’s Given The New Record A Lot Of Free Press”

As previously reported, Chris Barnes (Six Feet Under, ex-Cannibal Corpse) recently made headlines after expressing his disdain for modern death metal after watching Knofest’s “Death Metal Round Table” with George “Corpsegrinder’ Fisher (Cannibal Corpse), Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Chase Mason (Gatecreeper), and Alex Jones (Undeath). Now, Jones has responded by thanking Barnes for unintentionally giving Undeath’s new album, “It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave” (out April 22), “a lot of free press.”

Jones said the following during an appearance on the “Everflowing Stream“:

“Man, you know I just think it’s sad. I guess… I’ll try not to be too dismissive, here because I want to provide a serious answer to that question. But I think… you know, the guy’s a legend. He was an instrumental member on some of the most important death metal albums in history. I think if he had just stayed in his lane, so to speak, and not become like you know, a right-wing anti-vaxxer ghoul, then he could be a very well respected, loved, beloved character in the metal scene.

But I think he just made some very bad calls with the things that he chose to align himself with. I think he has kind of exposed some very obnoxious and kind of gross and frustrating beliefs over recent years. All in all, I knew all of that about him going into him saying what he said on Twitter, so I wasn’t surprised.

I wasn’t really expecting somebody like Chris Barnes at his current state to view that Knotfest video and say ‘wow, death metal is in great hands. I’m so proud of all these guys.’ Like, I know he’s he’s turned into a curmudgeon over the past 15-20 years, but it is what it is. I’m unbothered by it, and the rest of the guys in the band, we just kind of think it’s funny. And honestly, I need to send him a gift basket or something, because he’s given the new record a lot of free press over the past couple days.”

Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes On The Current State Of Death Metal: “I Despise What This Genre Has Become”

It looks like Chris Barnes (Six Feet Under, ex-Cannibal Corpse) isn’t a fan of the current death metal scene. The frontman tweeted the following about the genre after watching Knofest’s recent “Death Metal Round Table” with George “Corpsegrinder’ Fisher (Cannibal Corpse), Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Chase Mason (Gatecreeper), and Alex Jones (Undeath):

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta has since invited Barnes to discuss his thoughts on “The Jasta Show,” but he refused:

Undeath Premiere “Rise From The Grave” Music Video

Undeath have premiered a new video for their new song “Rise From The Grave.” This track is from the band’s new album “It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave,” which will be released on April 22.

Guitarist Kyle Beam commented:

“‘Rise From The Grave‘ is Undeath refined to its deadliest aspects. Blood curdling vocals, bonesaw guitars, slamming bass, and skull crushing drums, fused with a focused hook that brings the decayed mass together as a banging death metal track. We hope you all enjoy, bang your head and scream along.”

Vocalist Alexander Jones added:

“We knew we wanted to go kind of over-the-top with this video but still have it feel like something you might catch on Headbanger’s Ball in the ’90s. Think ‘Sentenced To Burn‘ or ‘Rapture‘. Luckily enough we met Errick while we were recording the album and when it came time to start plotting out the video, we knew he was the guy for the job. I think the end result is a great little encapsulation of what our band is all about – big riffs and plenty of gore.”

“It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave” Track Listing:

01. “Fiend For Corpses”
02. “Defiled Again”
03. “Rise From The Grave”
04. “Necrobionics”
05. “Enhancing The Dead”
06. “The Funeral Within”
07. “Head Splattered In Seven Ways”
08. “Human Chandelier”
09. “Bone Wrought”
10. “Trampled Headstones”
