Lest we forget, Pepper Keenan’s almost defacto appointment post-‘Vote With A Bullet’ to the position of lead vocalist of Corrosion Of Conformity was greeted with a huge collective cheer. And as nice as it’s been to see this CoC line-up play shows, and as nostalgically-pleasing as it was to get an album from them, I don’t think I’m alone in wanting the four-piece CoC to make a return now, am I? Keenan-keening aside, IX doesn’t even nearly scratch that itch, but the highs do handily outweigh the lows of yet another Pepper-free excursion.

Valient Himself is a man of many talents. Obviously, as the frontman of Valient Thorr, he’s a kick-ass musician.

Wretched
From: Charlotte, North Carolina USA
Lazy equation: (old Suicide Silence + new Job For A Cowboy) x the sound of small animals being stomped on
URL: Facebook // Twitter // YouTube

Thrash Hits verdict: Wretched are not a new band. They’ve been around for years in fact. We’re not going to pretend we’re so-far-ahead-of-the-curve that we were fans of the band since Day 1, but what we do know is that when we stuck their new record, Son of Perditio, into our stereo the other day, we liked what we heard. We liked it a lot. And what’s the point of having a Future Hits column if we;re not going to use it to tell people about bands we’ve just heard of? We fired an email off to the band’s vocalist, Adam Cody, asking him to tell us why we shouldn’t just restrict our Future Hits columns to the young ‘uns.

2008 into 2009: A Hero A Fake

December 15th, 2008

Patrick Jeffers, Alex Avigliano and Timothy Burgess from A Hero A Fake are pretty mad at someone but we didn’t think it would be a good idea to let them name names. Internet bitching is, like, soooo 2008!
