Montreal, Quebec, Canada metal radio show “Burnt Offerings”, which is hosted by Cecil D on CJLO 1690AM, conducted an interview with bassist Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN, KILL DEVIL HILL) before KILL DEVIL HILL‘s performance at the Underworld in Montreal. You can now watch the chat below.
Brown will publish his memoir, “Official Truth, 101 Proof: The Inside Story Of Pantera”, on March 12 via Da Capo Press. The 320-page book is described as a “starkly honest and revealing” book about Rex‘s time in one of the most influential and enduringly popular bands in heavy metal history, offering Brown‘s shocking personal insight into a band that had swapped the grimy clubs of Texas for arenas around the world but whose story would ultimately be touched by tragedy.
KILL DEVIL HILL‘s self-titled debut album was released last year via Steamhammer/SPV. The CD landed at position No. 9 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“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 was made available in a standard CD edition, as an iTunes digital download, and double gatefold LP.
According to drummer Vinny 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.”
