KILL DEVIL HILL — the new band featuring Vinny Appice (HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, DIO) on drums, 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 — made its live debut last night (Friday, April 29) at the Key Club in Hollywood, California. The group played a 30-minute set which was previously described as "an introduction to what's to come!"
Video footage of last night's concert can be viewed below (courtesy of Metal Assault). Also available is a video interview with Brown and Appice.
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 band recently stated in a post on its Facebook page, "Rex has just returned to Texas after a week of writing and recording in L.A. and just playing so goddamn loud with [KILL DEVIL HILL]! This is really kicking ass with a combination of sounds of BLACK SABBATH, ALICE IN CHAINS, and a sprinkle of ZEP. We are going old school meets new, no sample drums here!!" The group added, "Dewey laid down some amazing tracks last night on a killer new demo."
