Six Feet Under
Torment
Company: Metal Blade
Release: 2017
Genre: Death
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 3/6/2017

A step in the right direction, but nowhere close to classic SFU
Comments:
It's hard to believe this is Six Feet Under's twelfth studio album. Once one of my favorite DM bands, SFU took a steep decline after 2008's Death Rituals by changing most of their lineup and their style to a more modern death metal. Unfortunately, the faster songs didn't work well with Chris Barnes' struggling vocals. Fortunately, Torment is their best work since Death Rituals and after several decades of killing his throat, Barnes shows signs of improvements. The music is a mix of old-school SFU as well as some faster material with chugging riffs and occasional blast beats. Torment is pretty good and a step in the right direction.
Recommended for fans of:
Non-Technical Death Metal, Cannibal Corpse
