trailleeds86It's been four short months since Uber Rock's Ben Hughes last saw ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead live.

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.
