(Excuse me, yes, but Tina Maze (Slovenia: population 2 million approx / 7 current Winter Olympics medals in total) yesterday, Ted Ligety (USA: population 317 million approx / 21 current Winter Olympics medals in total), Patrizia Kummer (Switzerland: population 8 million approx / 10 current Winter Olympics medals in total) and Vic Wild (Russian Federation: population 143 million approx / 21 current Winter Olympics medals in total) today, surely killed the devil out of that hill.) ‘Leave It All Behind’ comes off KILL DEVIL HILL (Kill Devil Hills is an actual, existing town in North Carolina, USA, renowned for its pirating past (occurring around Kill Devil rum) and the Wright brothers' first successful powered flights) second studio album ‘Revolution Rise’, out since October 2013 on Century Media Records and which, I swear, did not purposely ignore. KILL DEVIL HILL, featuring such heavyweights as drummer Vinny Appice (former BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, DIO etc), bassist Rex Brown (former PANTERA, DOWN), guitarist Mark Zavon (former W.A.S.P.) and vocalist Jason “Dewey” Bragg (former PISSING RAZORS), produced ‘Revolution Rise’ along with Jeff Pilson. The album was mixed by Jay Ruston, and its art created by Sam Shearon. It sold around 2,150 copies in the USA in its first week of release and will sell much more internationally, if you buy ‘Revolution Rise’ here (CM Distro USA), here (the band's store), on iTunes or via Amazon.
Formed in 2011 in Kill Devil Hills in North Carolina by Appice, Brown, Zavon and Bragg, KILL DEVIL HILL released the supergroup's debut, self-titled album in 2012 through SPV/Steamhammer:
“Yes sir, some tasty metal is served. … That’s because KILL DEVIL HILL is not an album that requires detailed analysis to appreciate. Its sole mission seems to be one based in listener appreciation for no-frills metal/rock that grooves and hooks with just enough grit to maintain street-cred with the perpetual naysayers. Mission accomplished,” [went straight to the point Scott Alisoglu, Blabbermouth – more here:]
