Patrick Musumeche of Full Metal Rock conducted an interview with legendary drummer Vinny Appice (HEAVEN HELL, BLACK SABBATH, DIO). You can now listen to the chat at FullMetalRock.com.
KILL DEVIL HILL is the band featuring Appice, Rex Brown (DOWN, PANTERA) on bass, Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason “Dewey” Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals. The group, which recently inked a deal with SPV/Steamhammer, is recording its debut album for a March 2012 release. The as-yet-untitled effort is being produced by Warren Riker, who is best known for his work with DOWN, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, SUBLIME and CATHEDRAL.
KILL DEVIL HILL recently finished demoed around 10 songs, which, according to Appice, sound “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 at the Key Club in Hollywood, California.
