Please try again later. Verified Purchase. Anther great cover album. 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 definitely 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. 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 faithful 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 to 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 licks, heavy, thumping drums, and Chris' patented, frog-throated bellows.
It's a very fast, heavy, and all around excellent song which is Album) 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 "Smoke 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 Son Of A Bitch - Six Feet Under - Graveyard Classics (CD the boys you know and love take a break from producing real 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.
