On May 4, Rustyn Rose of Metalholic.com conducted an interview with former PANTERA/DOWN and current KILL DEVIL HILL bassist Rex Brown. You can now listen to the chat below.
In addition to Brown, KILL DEVIL HILL features in its ranks legendary drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN HELL, KILL DEVIL HILL) alongside Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason “Dewey” Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals.
The group’s self-titled debut album was released this past Tuesday (May 22) via SPV/Steamhammer.
“Kill Devil Hill” was originally due on March 27 but had its release date pushed back so that the band could record another track at the last minute. The group explained, “It was decided that a song that was to be a bonus track might be released as a single, so in order to include that song on the CD we needed an additional track to include as a bonus in its place.”
“Kill Devil Hill” was produced by Warren Riker, who is best known for his work with DOWN, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, SUBLIME and CATHEDRAL. The effort will be available in a standard CD edition, as an iTunes digital download, and double gatefold LP.
According to Appice, KILL DEVIL HILL‘s sound is “like a cross between BLACK SABBATH, ALICE IN CHAINS and a little bit of LED ZEPPELIN thrown in. It’s heavy, but with a lot of cool hooks and melodic overtones, too.”
The members of KILL DEVIL HILL previously stated about their songwriting and recording approach, “We are going old school meets new; no sample drums here!!”

* Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) – Guitar
