Kill Devil Hill is a heavy metal supergroup founded in 2011 by drummer Vinny Appice (former Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell and Dio), bassist Rex Brown (former Pantera and Down), guitarist Mark Zavon and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg (former Pissing Razors).[1] The band is named after the town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, a location renowned from pirating days.[2] The band's sound has been described as "heavy and modern without succumbing to typical contemporary hardcore trappings – indecipherable vocals or overused blast beats."[2] Kill Devil Hill released their self-titled debut album in May 2012. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kill_Devil_Hill_(band)

Christie Lenée: News and photos from recent studio sessions can be found on facebook

Hello friends!

I'm writing you beside a large sky window in Newark, NJ watching soft snowflakes come down. Contrastingly, In just a few hours I'll be back in the sunshine state in my native home of Tampa FL! One show TONIGHT at the Ringside Cafe in St Pete (9pm-12am), then off to play music on a cruise ship throughout the Caribbean for a month. While I'll be performing on the ship, it's also going to be an artist retreat for me to take everything I've learned recently and channel it into preparation for the next album in the works. Yes "Chasing Infinity" just came out, but I'm ready to bring more music to you!

There are many new things to share with you though I am about to jump on this plane. :) I'll touch base soon and look forward to sharing more news about recording projects in the works: one with David Ivory working on my vocal music, and another project beginning in January with Will Ackerman, founder of Windam Hill Records. It's been an incredible few weeks of learning and discoveries!!

Tampa friends, I hope to see you tonight at Ringside Cafe in St Pete! Solo Acoustic Show 9pm-12am. I'm excited to share time and music with you. :) Much love to all!

Clay Withrow,Jay Gleason: Vangough's Between the Madness Is Out Today

Vangough's Between the Madness Is Out Today
"The new release is of stellar yet epic proportions" - Sarjoo Devani, ExplicitlyIntense.com

"Vangough has been eating their Wheaties.  Make sure your seatbelts are securely fastened" - Frank Serafine, MetalUnderground.com

“melodic cocaine for your ears.”
“The new album is a caustic and vicious spiral into the depths of human frailty… raw and naked.”
"Between The Madness, with its disturbing lyrics and intriguing music, will be a challenging and entertaining listen for the prog metal fan: it’s pure Vangough!" - Craig Hartranft DangerdogMusicReviews.com

LOS ANGELES, CA NOVEMBER 12, 2013 –Vangough’s Between the Madness, hit shelves today. The album is the band’s third studio effort and follow-up to the critically acclaimed Kingdom of Ruin released in 2011. Spread across twelve songs and topping out over 70 minutes of harsh textures and exotic flavors, the band hopes fans will find this the most important release of the band's career.
Coming off the heels of the band’s sophomore CD, returning members Clay Withrow and Jeren Martin united with newcomer Kyle Haws on drums to begin work on the successor. They entered Bell Labs in the summer of 2012 to record drums with engineer Sterling Winfield before returning to Clay's private studio where they worked away for the next several months.

Featuring a darker, more unified sound, this album is a spiral into the depths of human frailty. With tracks like "Infestation" and "Thy Flesh Consumed" pushing the boundaries of Vangough's tempestuous new approach to metal, Between the Madness is a contrast to the previous albums. It stands as a bold statement to where the band is heading, as well as a thought-provoking reflection on where they have been. With a greater emphasis on collaboration from band mates Jeren and Kyle, Vangough are able to craft an even more distinctive style that focuses more on groove and feeling.

Produced by guitarist/vocalist Clay Withrow, Between the Madness was an intentional move to mature the band's sound, both vocally and with the song's arrangements, into something that stood out among progressive metal releases. "I find that I don't listen to much music in our particular genre," explains Clay. "With that in mind, I wanted to make something that had its own unique flavor- apart from everything else that has come before us."
With the release of their third album, Vangough steps out of the shadows of their influences and delivers something emotionally outstanding and heartfelt: A lyrically poignant collection of songs that bravely pushes the band into an unexplored minefield of musicality. "Between the Madness is the most collaborative Vangough album to date," says Clay. "It took two albums to really mine the depths of what we could achieve and where we wanted to be musically but the end result is extremely cathartic."

"Fans will be able to order Between the Madness from most online retailers such as Amazon, CDBaby and iTunes in a variety of formats including a 6-panel Digipak, which features the iconic eyeflower artwork from Rainer Kalwitz or as a 24-bit digital download."
Who to blame for this madness…

Jake E Lee: Red Dragon Cartel - Ozzy's guitarist out of self-imposed exile

Jake E Lee: Red Dragon Cartel 

Tracklisting: Deceived; Shout It Out; Feeder (featuring Robin Zander); Fall From The Sky (Seagull); Wasted (featuring Paul Di’Anno); Slave; Big Mouth (featuring Maria Brink); War Machine; Redeem Me (featuring Sass Jordan); Exquisite Tenderness.

After a self-imposed exile from the music industry and the public eye, noted guitarist Jake E. Lee  (Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands) is returning to the fold with a new band, RED DRAGON CARTEL.
The band came about when old friend Ronnie Mancuso helped to coax Jake out of retirement. Ronnie, noted session guitarist/bassist, composer and producer for Beggars & Thieves, was sharing a studio space, “The Hideout” in Las Vegas with super hot producer, engineer and mixer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie, Hinder, In This Moment). Ronnie and Kevin started talking with Jake, then slowly, Ronnie and Jake along with Kevin’s son Kane (co-writer of Five Finger Death Punch’s “Remember Everything”, In This Moments “Blood” and many others) started writing songs under Kevin’s supervision based on literally hundreds of great riffs Jake had stored up from his years in seclusion.

The new self-titled Red Dragon Cartel debut album was cut at The Hideout and produced by R. Bernard Mann (AKA Ronnie Mancuso and Jake E. Lee) and executive produced, mixed and mastered by Kevin Churko.

The band was rounded out by a lucky few culled from over a thousand submissions to a “Jake E. Lee needs a lead singer and drummer Facebook page”. The lucky few are UK born vocalist D.J Smith, and Vancouver based drummer/vocalist, Jonas Fairley. The album also features stellar guest appearances from legendary vocalist Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, original Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di’Anno, former Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown, Slash’s Conspirator’s, Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz, Scott Reeder of Kyuss and The Obsessed and new metal icons like vocalist Maria Brink from In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer. With the majority of tracks recorded with the new permanent members “Red Dragon Cartel”(album and band) is about to blast off. This amazing guitarist will once again grace the rock world with his unbridled skill with an extremely talented band backing him up.

Phil Collen,Paul Cook: Manraze - I Surrender - EP and Featured Guest On Rockline

Will Be Featured Guest On Rockline – November 18, 2013



MANRAZE, the London-based rock band formed by iconic Def Leppard lead guitarist Phil Collen, along with punk rock forerunner Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) on drums and Simon Laffy, rockin’ bass player of Collen's former glam-band, Girl, release their new EP, I Surrender available on iTunes today - November 12th. On November 18th MANRAZE will be the featured guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, ROCKLINE with host Bob Coburn. Fans can tune in at 8:30 pm PT/11:30 pm ET. Check rocklineradio.com for more details.

When not rocking together, the MANRAZE trio continues to keep busy. Collen holds down his ‘day-job’ as lead guitarist with Def Leppard, heading with the band into a Dublin studio in February to write and record new music. Collen is also working on his own blues album Delta Deep featuring soulstress Debbi Blackwell-Cook and is currently writing his auto-biography (Simon & Shuster/Atria) due out late 2014. Cook has been working with Edwyn Collins first on his 2013 album release Understated, and then touring with Collins playing live shows. Currently, Cook is also playing in Subway Sect with Vic Goddard, touring and recording a new album. Laffy has taken his talents into another creative lane having authored two novels in his ‘off-time’, Red Sunrise and Seed of Satan. Both are historical fictions set around epic events of the 20th century and are in the process of being published.

It all started in 2004 when Phil Collen, after 20+ years as lead guitarist for Def Leppard, decided to express himself via another creative outlet. After a fateful conversation with Simon Laffy and a next day chance meeting with Paul Cook MANRAZE was formed and finally released their debut album SURREAL through Universal Records in the summer of 2008 to rave reviews. In August 2011 the trio re-enetered the studio and released punkfunkrootsrock which featured the single, “Over My Dead Body.” In the spring of 2011 the MANRAZE single “I, Superbiker” was the theme song for the feature documentary of the same name. Directed by Mark Sloper, and released solely in the UK, the documentary is an in-depth expose’ into the merciless world of competitive speed bike racing and a look at the men who have dedicated their entire existence to this incredibly dangerous, adrenaline-fueled sport. MANRAZE’s single “Take On The World” featuring Debbi Blackwell-Cook was subsequently released in 2012 as a part of the soundtrack to Sloper’s sequel film “I, Superbiker: The Showdown” which chronicled the rise of 2011 British superbike racing champion Tommy Hill.

Rob Cavestany: Death Angel @ The Whiskey 10-19-13 Jack Lue Series

Death Angel is a thrash metal band from Concord, California, initially active from 1982 to 1991 and again since 2001. Death Angel has released seven studio albums, two demo tapes, one box setand two live albums.

Two independent releases, The Ultra-Violence (1987) and Frolic Through the Park (1988), attracted the attention of Geffen Records, which signed the quintet in 1989 and released their next album,Act III, one year later. While Death Angel was touring in support of Act III, drummer Andy Galeon was injured in a tour bus accident and needed more than a year to fully recover. This resulted in the band's break up in 1991. However, Death Angel reformed in 2001 (without original guitarist Gus Pepa) at the Thrash of the Titans benefit concert for Testament singer Chuck Billy. The band continues to record and perform today. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Angel
