Six Feet Under premieres Iron Maiden cover song, “Murders in the Rue Morgue”


On May 27th, Six Feet Under will release the fourth installment of their Graveyard Classics series, this time paying tribute to two of metal’s most heralded legends: Iron Maiden and Judas Priest! Entitled Graveyard Classics IV: The Number of the Priest and mixed by Jesse Kirkbride at Kirkbride Recordings in Cape Coral, FL, the album is comprised of five Judas Priest covers (side A), and six Iron Maiden covers (side B), handpicked by Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel.


Chris Barnes comments: “Achtung Motherfuckers!!! Today we release ‘Murders in the Rue Morgue’, a ‘Killer’ track (pun intended) from our upcoming album, ‘Graveyard Classics IV: The Number of the Priest‘, for your listening pleasure!! Hope you enjoy it!! Hope the haters choke on it, choke on it, choke on it…Also in other Six Feet Under news – Graveyard Classics The Tour will be invading your European community this summer, be sure to check these dates off on your calendar…This will be the first and only time we will be playing an entire set list of cover songs – something we haven’t done before – so come experience something groovy and brutal motherfuckers! See you soon, Europe! Love, Dad.”

In regards to this new serving of death metal tributes, Chris Barnes asserts: “Get ready to have your ears violated and your mind blown! ‘Graveyard Classics IV: The Number of the Priest‘ just crawled out of the Heavy Metal Cemetery! Having a good time playing music is what it’s always been about since day one, and that’s what the ‘Graveyard Classics‘ albums are to me… a good fucking time! On this trip down memory lane, we cover songs from Judas Priest and Iron Maiden; the two greatest metal bands of all time. Ray Alder from Fates Warning did a guest background vocal appearance on ‘Invader’, our first single. Ray is a great friend, and an awesome vocalist, and I felt our differences in styles blended well together for the middle section and added some harmony to the rawness.
I hope you all enjoy the band’s twist on these legendary songs!”
