Ex-Brain Drill bassist now in Six Feet Under
Jeff Hughell, who some of you may know as the bassist for Reciprocal and former bass player for the blisteringly technical death metal band, Brain Drill, has joined the ranks of Six Feet Under. Hughell will replace Matt DeVries who moved on to play with Fear Factory earlier this month (don't blame ya, bro!). SFU is probably one of my least favourite metal bands of all time. To be honest I can't get past the fact that they're fronted by grunter, Chris Barnes, who I refer to as 'the man who held back Cannibal Corpse'. Hughell on the other hand is a master of the bass, which is a no-brainer if you've ever listened to his performance on their debut full-length 'Apocalyptic Feasting' and his performance on SFU's upcoming album may make it something worth listening to, assuming they give him some artistic pull in the writer's circle.
