Jeff Hughell (Brain Drill, Vile) joins SIX FEET UNDER as new bassist.

From SFU’s Facebook post:

Within days of announcing the departure of Matt DeVries, SIX FEET UNDER has locked in the latest addition to the bands already heavy and extremely talented lineup. Seven-string bassist Jeff Hughell, formally of the Santa Cruz California technical death metal band Brain Drill and Concord California death metal band Vile, will be joining the ranks as the new SIX FEET UNDER bassist. Check out a video of Jeff shredding on his bass HERE.

Vocalist Chris Barnes comments; “Six Feet Under is proud to announce our new member, bass player Jeff Hughell. 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.”

Jeff Hughell adds; “I am honored to be the newest edition to the mighty Six 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!”

Stay tuned to,, and for album news and tour dates.

Well at least they got someone with some talent to play bass, I wonder how this tech death bass player will fit in and hopefully add something amazing to SFU’s already thunderous groove sound.


Six Feet Under – Beneath A Black Sky

look to the sky
it’s turning black
no sun shining light
day turns into night
no moon above
lost in the shadows
eclipsing the sun
only darkness above

beneath a black sky

All life will end
infinite winter
eternal darkness
thunder cracks the silence
above us only black
frozen stiff
nothing remains

beneath a black sky

look to the sky
it’s turning black
no sun shining light
day turns into night
Above us only black
hollow horizon
No sun rising
