There’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t go pick up Smut, the new album from former Future Hits interviewees Bateman this week. They’re giving it away for free. If you like Every Time I Die, but think they’d be even better if they were coarser, uglier, and more likely to kick you into a canal as much as look at you, then you’ll like this one.
1. Hardcore band from Shelton/Hamden, Connecticut, United States
Pissed off Connecticut Hardcore that at one time featured members from Death Threat and The Risk Taken. They have played with such bands as Death Threat, Terror, Ramallah, The Fearless Vampire Killers, The Hope Conspiracy, Doomriders, Ignite, Down To Nothing, Comeback Kid, Pale Horse, Black My Heart, Death Before Dishonor, Sinking Ships, Modern Life is War, Guns UP, Shipwreck, and First Blood just to name a few.

Bateman on Thrash Hits
January 10th, 2014
Thrash Hits verdict: When bands we love tour the world, we pay attention to who they have as support bands in other countries; it’s because of a support-slot with perennial Thrash Hits favourites Rolo Tomassi that we became first aware of Bateman.
