Kill Devil Hill (CD)
Kill Devil Hill is Rex Brown (Pantera, Down) on bass, Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell, Dio) on drums, Mark Zavon on guitar, and Dewey Bragg on vox. KDH is a supergroup of sorts, if you want to limit them with that tag, but they don't play like a supergroup. No one is trying to outdo the other here. This is a garage band with pedigree. Each member channels his experience into the project as though each one is doing this for the first time. In other words, the resumes have been left folded in the back pockets of road-ravaged leather pants while the band sweats it out the old-fashioned way. If this album had come out in 1994, I would have paused for a second or two before going back to the soft foam comfort of my walkman's headphones and my Metallica mixtapes. This album is better than that, though, giving Kill Devil Hill's sound a sweet nostalgia that will give hope to those aging hard rockers of 2012, who desperately long for the past. Kill Devil Hill is equal parts 80's hair metal and Sabbath-esque grunge rock glory. Dewey Bragg's angsty Sebastian Bach-meets-Layne Staley vocal delivery sits very nicely on Appice, Brown, and Zavon's thick bed of sludgy swagger. The drums and bass lock into some powerful grooves while Zavon's massive riffs slither around them like confederate flag-skinned snakes. This is the soundtrack to a hillbilly family BBQ that you wish you were invited to, but would be scared to go to if you were.
