The self-titled debut album from KILL DEVIL HILL — the band featuring Vinny Appice (HEAVEN HELL, BLACK SABBATH, DIO) on drums, Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) on bass, Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason “Dewey” Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals — has had its release date pushed back to late spring from the previously announced March 27.
Commented the group: “Don’t worry, all, the CD will be out this year (hopefully May). We are just waiting for a final release date since we had to record another track at the last minute. 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. Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!”
“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.
The song “Time Time Again” can be streamed using the SoundCloud player below (courtesy of RevolverMag.com).
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!!”
KILL DEVIL HILL made its live debut on April 29, 2011 at the Key Club in Hollywood, California.
