Veteran death metal group Six Feet Under have set Nightmares of the Decomposed as the title of their 13th original studio album, which will also be the first to feature guitarist Jack Owen, who was bandmates with singer Chris Barnes during the vocalist's early stay in Cannibal Corpse. The new song "Amputator" is their first piece of new music together since 1994 when Corpse put out The Bleeding.

Just a few days after the release of Six Feet Under's previous album, Torment, which came out in 2017, the band announced the addition of Owen to the lineup. Now, he's had the chance to truly leave his imprint as part of Six Feet Under with the new record arriving on Oct. 2.

As for "Amputator," it's speedy old school death metal track as Barnes demonstrates the well is far from dry when it comes to lyrical themes of murder and depraved deviance.

"Working again after 25 years writing an album with my old bandmate from Cannibal Corpse, Jack Owen, was like coming home... to a room full of dead bodies," Barnes boasted, adding, "Jack's writing and riff work on this album gave me the fuel to write some disturbing lyrics and really set my creative mind on fire."

Owen, who left Cannibal Corpse in 2004, linked up with Florida death metal icons Deicide in that same year following the simultaneous departure of the Hoffman brothers guitar duo. He remained with Deicide until 2016 and contributed to four of the group's studio albums.

The amputator on another hunt to kill them
The mass murderer of every human being
Attack the body with a vengeance deep inside
Sawing off arms and legs, you die

Cumming and laughing as you're fucking screaming
A broken body on the ground, squirming
Tortured souls I send to hell
One piece at a time

The amputator on another hunt to murder
Killing with the hatred for this existence
Decimate the body with a dull hacksaw
Sawing off arms and legs, you die

Amputator
Amputator

The death of all mankind is what I havе in mind
I have no problem killing a woman or a child
Mutilate еvery single fucking one
I won't ever rest until this job is done
Killing with this axe I chop off every part
A pile of gore now begins to rot
A horror show just for one
We share a moment, then you're gone
To my soul trap, to my spirit dungeon
Your body parts are now eaten
Devoured in a frenzy and digested
Sawing off arms and legs, you die

Amputator
Amputator

The amputator on another hunt to kill them
The mass murderer of every human being
Attack the body with a vengeance deep inside
Hacking off arms and legs, you die

Smiling and laughing as you're fucking screaming
Decimate the body with a dull hacksaw
Tortured souls I send to hell
One piece at a time

Cumming and laughing as you're fucking screaming
A dying baby on the ground, squirming
Tortured souls I send to hell
One piece at a time

Amputator
Amputator
