Six year veterans The Hixon have always been up for playing charitable events and raising money for good causes, but that is just one generous side of the story. The other is the heaping dose of grinding, hardcore-tinged wattage the band cranks out, traditional metal riffs everywhere, a raucous booze-fueled time to be had by all...

Acclaimed heavy metal drummer Richard Christy (ex-ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED), who currently works for "The Howard Stern Show", will host Hixonfest 2007 on Saturday, July 28 at the Pennant East in Bellmawr, New Jersey. This yearly event is put together by THE HIXON to showcase some of the best metal bands in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania/Delaware tri-state area.

THE HIXON appears in the July issue of Revolver magazine and has a cameo in the documentary "Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal".

THE HIXON's new CD, "Truth Has Been Burned", was mixed by Neil Kernon (NILE, NEVERMORE, JUDAS PRIEST, CANNIBAL CORPSE) and will be released in July.

Richard Christy recently posted his directorial film debut, "Evil Ned 3 -The Return of Evil Ned 2 - Electric Boogaloo", on YouTube.

Christy previously stated about the movie, "I made 'Evil Ned' when I lived in Springfield, Missouri in 1995 and I have to warn you beforehand, I had no idea what in the hell I was doing! But for all of its technical flaws there are many crazy things in this film that will make you either laugh or cry! This film was made for about 250 dollars, 200 of which was spent on beer, and it is the epitome of low-budget! If you're into beer, dirty magazines, huge hog testicles, gay monsters, Amish erotica, and evil talking ducks, then you'll love this movie!"

Christy has played in many bands, including ICED EARTH, BURNING INSIDE, DEATH and CONTROL DENIED. Christy joined DEATH after meeting their leader Chuck Schuldiner in a bookstore while the band was looking for a new drummer after the departure of Gene Hoglan. Christy recorded three albums with DEATH (the critically-acclaimed "The Sound of Perseverance", released in 1998; "Live in L.A. (Death & Raw)", 2001; and "Live in Eindhoven", also 2001) and one album with CONTROL DENIED, "The Fragile Art of Existence", which came out in 1999. -
