I dunno... Bullet Tooth is Trustkill renamed I believe... And from what I'd heard a while back was the dude behind those labels was a jackass and fucked a lot of stuff up... And most of those bands you mentioned are nothing new or original... Serianna for one is one band that just won't go that far... Affiance is pretty cool and all, but Bullet Tooth is terrible at promotion etc.
Yea, Trustkill is not Bullet Tooth. Josh is a great dude. And a lot of those issues you hear from the Trustkill era are pretty one sided from the bands. If an album doesn't sell well, you're not gonna get paid well.
