THE INNOCENT ARE GUILTY… OF BEING TOTALLY FULL OF SH*T

THE INNOCENT ARE GUILTY… OF BEING TOTALLY FULL OF SH*TThe Innocent are a new sorta-but-not-really-supergroup featuring Bleeding Through’s Brandon Schieppati on vocals, Bad Religion’s Brooks Wackerman on drums, and some of the dudes no one cares about from The Distillers and No Use For A Name. They play neo-thrash with screamed verses and, sometimes, cleanly sung choruses. The bio on their MySpace page features the following statement:

“As grinding death metal reemerges, thrash metal makes an exciting comeback and the trendy also-rans of the last few years deservedly fall out of favor, it’s time for skillful fretwork, mature song-craft and breathtaking musicianship altogether to conquer to take its rightful place once again. It is time for The Innocent.”

That’s a joke, right? “Trendy also-rans of the last few years” – isn’t that Bleeding Through? And, other than not having a cute chick playing synths, WHAT THE FUCK IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS BAND AND BLEEDING THROUGH?

Trend-chasing cock suckers. I hate this band already.
