5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal, 15 Aug 2001
This review is from: True Carnage (Digipak) (Audio CD)
Brilliant album, which combines some seriously good drumming with some fast heavy guitaring to form a death metal classic. Unlike some death metal bands like Nile which use random timings and riffs, this band make some steady & quite catchy tunes which are sure to get you headbanging. Also included is a CD-ROM video for the song "The Day The Dead Walked" which is pretty cool cept' I can't hear the sound on my pc :***( All in all a great album for the hardcore metal fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Album, 17 Dec 2002
Mr. George Johnson "Gj" (Herts, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: True Carnage (Digipak) (Audio CD)
Just when you thought there was no room for originality in such a confined genre as Death Metal, SFU come along and prove you wrong. As ever the most original vocals you will ever hear, rather than going straight for the traditional sung/grunt style, SFU favour the extremely low, almost whispered, sub-audible murmering. The music just cannot be beaten, once again rather than triming and random time changes, they favour a more thrash based backdrop to work against. If your looking for Death Metal with something extra, give SFU a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doom Dance, 7 July 2012
Mr. M. Leek "introverted_lamenting" (Guildford, England.) - See all my reviews
This review is from: True Carnage (Digipak) (Audio CD)
The album following this one was critiqued as a `return to form' but, personally, 'True Carnage' is my favourite of all the Six Feet Under albums. It contains a tremendous variance of range in vocals and musical tempo. Whereas some of the other albums tend to become a little boring after five or six similar sounding songs, this one doesn't have a single dull moment.
The opening track `Impulse to Disembowel' is pure grinding power and Barnes' vocals are deeper than on most other songs throughout the entire SFU legacy. The following two songs, `The Day The Dead Walked' and `It Never Dies', are of a much faster pace but do not slide into monotony and the vocals range constantly between guttural growl, agonised shout, and the higher-pitched scream for which Barnes is well known.
`Waiting for Decay' is so funky it will have any self-respecting fan dancing along before breaking into a high-tempo pace accompanied with wonderfully deep growls once again.
`Knife, Gun, axe' could almost be described as funky doom dance... it is impossible not to dance to this song. Added to the beauty of this song is the fact that Barnes seems to be engaged in conflict with himself over vocal style and fluctuates between deep growl and high-pitched scream so frequently that it drags the listener in.
The final song, 'Necrosociety', is so wonderfully heavy that it is ridiculous (in a very positive sense) and is a great ending to an amazing album.

The low point for me is the guest appearance of Ice-T in `One Bullet Left' (he sounds like some angry, ignorant teenager threatening to shoot people for drinking his milkshake). I'm a fan of Ice-T but he seems to be overdoing it here a little and I personally don't feel that the SFU sound is complimented by his vocal style or attitude. Having said that, one could argue that Ice-T's appearance is another additional variety to the contrasting sounds and speeds of this album.

I highly recommend this album for those old and new to the wonderful monstrosity that is Six Feet Under.
