Six Feet Under
Graveyard Classics 2

Six Feet Under “Graveyard Classics 2” Metal Blade Records 2004 reviewed by: Ken Pierce
I don’t know what the relevance of re-recording such a classic album in the way it was done will hold for this did not appeal to anyone I played it for. I did not want to be the sole opinion on this, and said maybe I was missing the boat somewhere. Everyone who heard it agreed the music was well done and then ruined when the singing kicked in. Steve Swanson, Greg Gall and Terry Butler do however a fine job of the playing of the tunes.
It is difficult to determine who will enjoy this CD. I think the only people who “might” like it are the die-hard fans of Six Feet Under (and these fans need to own everything the group releases). Classic rock fans of AC/DC will be insulted by this, as there is no need for a redo of an album that broke hard rock ground on its release. Death metal fans themselves might not enjoy it for it is not speeding fast or even relevant to their musical interests. I strongly suggest you play MP3 samples of it before you purchase it, you might thank me.
