Star studded Kill Devil Hill sign with SPV/Steamhammer

KillDevilHill

Kill Devil Hill, the band newly formed by acclaimed drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven And Hell, Dio) and bassist Rex Brown (Pantera, Down), have signed with Steamhammer / SPV to release their exceptional debut album ‘Kill Devil Hill’ on March 26th.

‘Kill Devil Hill’ was produced by Warren Riker, (best known for his work with Down, Corrosion Of Conformity, Sublime and Cathedral), who has perfectly captured the eleven hugely potent musical punches of mesmerizing, killer groove and guitar hook-laden songs on the album.

Kill Devil Hill’s line-up is rounded out by guitar slinger extraordinaire Mark Savon, (Scream Parade, Ratt, WWIII) and previously undiscovered killer singer Dew Bragg, whose expressive, haunting, powerful vocals totally floored Vinny, (as they will you!) on first listen.

In 2009 Vinny cast about and found the perfect guitarist in Zavon, who was also looking to start a new band. Zavon played a demo that he had recorded with vocalist Dewey Bragg, and Vinny, who was blown away, states that “Dewey has a fantastic sound and has the perfect voice and image for this new band.” Dewey is a master of melody, with the gift of enhancing even the most jagged arrangements with his haunting vocals.

Rex Brown and Vinny Appice have been friends for many years; “Vinny is a brilliant drummer, and of course, I was immediately interested when he asked me whether I wanted to play bass on a demo tape he was working on” says Rex. Brown was sent “War Machine”, an aggressive up tempo tune which really gets down to business, and is the opener on the new album. Rex’s bass was the missing piece of the puzzle; his “on 11 at all times” bass style was a perfect fit, and completed the powerful rhythm section.

While there are no ‘filler’ tracks on ‘Kill Devil Hill’, mention must be made of killer numbers such as “Hangman”, “War Machine”, “Rise From The Shadows” and “Up In Flames”, which feature contemporary and classic metal elements in equal measure, combining old-school and new perfectly. 

There can be no doubt that Kill Devil Hill will be a musical force to be reckoned with for years to come. The massive potential that this new band has is obvious; ‘Kill Devil Hill’ is electrified throughout by a very special spark which draws the listener inexorably in, keeping them spellbound until the last monstrous musical notes fade away.
