Two-Headed Boy March 26th Comments. Hopefully, he will never hear these Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2. No charisma, no intonation, no irony, no expressiveness. SFU did not try to make the songs better by modifying them with some individual, amazing elements. Okay, this would have been almost impossible.
Yet it would have deserved more respect than the slavish imitation with death metal guitars and bad vocals. But is it really a slavish imitation? I have the feeling that Glad To Be Unhappy - Frank Sinatra - Sings Rodgers And Hart SFU edition is twice as long as the original.
In other words, I did not know that one can absorb the energy and the entertaining elements of brilliant songs in such a meticulous and successful manner. Angus Young and his comrades have sold more than 50 millions copies of "Back in Black", but I hope that SFU are still waiting for the first misguided fool to buy a copy of this powerless document of infamy.
There's a sucker born every minute, but even these guys should realize that their appendix is more valuable than this soulless product. Frankly speaking, I need an antidote quickly so allow me Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 come to the end. Please bury me four, five or seven feet under when the time has come. I don't have a preference. Only six feet under is no longer acceptable. You just couldn't help yourself, could you Chris? If you thought the first Graveyard Classics album was horrendous, get a load of this shit.
Covering a full length in it's entirety is a risky endeavour that rarely pays off. Even if it's well done, it usually ends up being pointless.
The most common examples of it working involve giving the tracks a different perspective and often a new genre to call home. The changes in this case are superficial - instrumentally not much is changed and the biggest difference is that Brian Johnson's whiskey-soaked wails are replaced by half baked growls. Before I go any further I probably should disclose that Back In Black is one of my favourite rock albums of all time.
The playing is incredibly tight, the solos and riffs are stellar and the singing is Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2. This cheap rehash takes everything that was good about the original and pisses all over it. It feels like some bad drunken idea they hobbled together over the course of a few nights. Although I would like to write this off as a cheap cash in to make money off 14 year olds just getting into metal who don't know any better, I have this sinking feeling that Chris loved every minute of making this.
Instrumentally, they don't really carry the tracks over into death metal. A vague metal element is added, most notably for the solos, but for the most part the instruments play a pale imitation of the original. Despite the slight added metal element, the original sounds Tim Y Connie Foley* - Ten Confianza En Tu Trabajo (Programa Básico - Historia) more heavy.
This metal influence on the guitar is largely superficial, sure stylistically it's more metal, but it completely lacks the vigour one would expect from the genre. The riffwork is lazy, coming off as perpetually sloppy.
The once mighty riffs are stripped of all power, with no doubt some help from the sterile guitar tone. The drumming on the original was really fucking tight. Here, not so much. On this shitty rehash, they are even more lacklustre than the guitar.
They stick to the bare bones, haphazardly plodding along. The bass provides little more than an irritating distant rumble. Chris's shortcomings in the vocal department have been well documented, but this really takes the cake. Here they are at their most accessible and you can hear all the lyrics.
It sounds like some severely drunk dude getting up to do karaoke to a badly rerecorded instrumental and doing a horrendous imitation of death metal vocals for a few laughs. His vocal phrasing is awful and regularly misses the mark. At the start of "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" he does the death metal version of spoken word and sounds like a complete tool. Adding stuff like rock and roll "is good for you, motherfucker", only makes it more laughable.
Go Various - TOP PHILIPS Chris, you're drunk.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again Bourbon Mix - Da Fanaticz - Who Got Da Props. I don't understand all of these negative reviews for this CD.
OK a lot of these songs you can't imagine being covered by a death metal band, but for the most part they came out pretty good!
I'd say it's Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 a fun death metal CD to listen to if you want to hear some good metal jams to chill to. An awesome cd. Good condition. Format: Audio CD. I bought this C. So no, I didn't exactly listen to this covers album with an open mind.
But after listening to it in its entirety, I can safely say "Graveyard Classics" is quite a bit better than I expected.
It may be all hit or miss, but this is a great buy for Six Feet Under diehards, as well as fans who collect everything to do with Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, etc. Some think of any death metal group covering bands like Jimi Hendrix and The Dead Kennedys as a laughable idea. But you should at least give Six Feet Under props for a few things. First of all, you've got to admit that this was a bold, daring, maybe even imaginative move by the band.
Plus, Chris didn't add any new lyrics to the songs--he left them the way they were written. Lastly, and most importantly, SFU's instrumentalists especially guitarist Steve Swanson usually remain quite Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 to the original songs this album's music isn't very far off base. The best advice I can give you, when listening to this disc, is that you shouldn't think of it as a covers album. Now, granted, it is sometimes hard not to think of what the original song sounded like and compare it Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 what it sounds like on "Graveyard Classics.
But every ingredient is here for this to be a good death metal and trademark Six Feet Under album like heavy riffs and drum beats, wild guitar solos, and strong, visceral vocalsso if you just think of this as a regular death metal album, then you should enjoy it a lot more and realize most of the songs are pretty solid.
When using the above-mentioned strategy of not comparing these songs to the originals, some of the tracks here are great! The door opener, "Holocaust," has a churning rhythm with fiery guitar I Dont Want To Know - Fleetwood Mac - Rumours, heavy, thumping drums, and Chris' patented, frog-throated bellows.
It's a very fast, heavy, and all around excellent song which is brimming with walloping drums, great, ferocious riffs, and it even includes a fairly long, careening guitar solo. Tracks seven and ten, "Confused" and "Blackout," are two other pretty good songs, even though the latter features an out-of-place cameo by Antrhax's John Bush, which kind of drags that song down.
Still, this is a covers album, so one can't help but compare these songs to the originals. And finally, there are a few atrocious tracks. If you don't roll on the floor laughing after listening to Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 On The Water" and "Purple Haze," then there's something wrong with your hearing.
These two songs prove that there's sometimes truth in the saying "don't tamper with the classics. One can't help but wonder what it might have sounded like if there was anybody except Chris Barnes singing, but as it stands now, "Graveyard Classics" is a good death metal album, but a terrible set of covers.
One person found this helpful. If there's any concept that has been laboriously tested and found wanting in inspiration -- aside from the unanimously reviled tribute album -- it's the covers LP. Basically, here's where the boys Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 know and love take a break from producing Vapourspace - Vista Humana music and pretend they're a bar band again, working for a beer tab and whatever their girlfriends can shake out of the semi-conscious pub patrons that have collected intentionally or not in their presence.
And they've got the anything-to-please-the-crowd set list to prove it. What's disturbing about Six Feet Under is not their dismal lyrics or haunted house artwork but their seeming willingness to Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics 2 on their success as one of the top death metal draws around the world.
First, they follow up their endearing debut with a valueless EP and sub par sophomore effort, and then they re-release last year's return to form "Maximum Violence" six months later with a few cover songs thrown on as bonus tracks.
