VINNY APPICE, REX BROWN Talk KILL DEVIL HILL With HARDROCK HAVEN (Audio)

Steve Patrick of Hardrock Haven recently conducted separate interviews with drummer Vinny Appice (HEAVEN HELL, BLACK SABBATH, DIO) and bassist Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) of KILL DEVIL HILL. You can now listen to both conversations below.

In addition to Appice and Brown, KILL DEVIL HILL features in its ranks Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason “Dewey” Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals.

The band’s self-titled debut album will be released via SPV/Steamhammer on the following dates:

U.S./Canada: May 22
Germany: May 25
Rest Of Europe: May 28

“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!!”

KILL DEVIL HILL made its live debut on April 29, 2011 at the Key Club in Hollywood, California.
