Commandment is a collection of very catchy death metal songs. They are crushingly heavy, but also have a great groove to them. Six Feet Under has found a formula that works well for them, and they stick to it on this album.
Chris Barnes' lyrics are about the usual topics: death, gore and destruction, and his cookie monster vocals are a little more understandable on this CD than some of the band's past work. When all is said and done, Commandment is a solid death metal album, not breaking any new ground, but following a tried and true path that fans of Six Feet Under know and love.
