thedixiedeadHe spent 2011 Calling All Corpses now, in the year that he was surely created to flavour spooktakularly, Wednesday 13 returns with 'The Dixie Dead', a long (shadows) player that is filled with the usual schlock rock shock and B-movie trashy terror that, as Uber Rock's man-beast Ian Bell discovered upon listening, peels off its skin to reveal an unexpected maturity and more subtle descent into darkness.
