Vinny Appice Is Back In Two Bands

By Andy DoerschukPublished on October 27, 2010

After taking some much deserved down time following the break up of Heaven & Hell spurred by the tragic death of the band’s legendary singer Ronnie James Dio earlier this year, Vinny Appice has announced the formation of a new band of heavy metal ringers. Tentatively called Kill Devil Hill, the group also features former Pantera and current Down bassist Rex Brown, former Ratt guitarist Mark Zavon, and newcomer Dewey Bragg on vocals. But apparently that just isn’t enough action for former Black Sabbath drummer Appice, since he has also joined forces with Arms Of The Sun, yet another project that features Brown on bass. Look for releases from both bands in 2011.
