Kill Devil Hill is a heavy metal supergroup founded in 2011 by drummer Vinny Appice, bassist Rex Brown, guitarist Mark Zavon and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg. The band is named after the town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, a location renowned from pirating days. [Kill Devil Hills, NC is best known as the site of the Wright Brothers's first failed attempt at flying, resulting in the destruction of their catapulted projectile.] The band's sound has been described as "heavy and modern without succumbing to typical contemporary hardcore trappings – indecipherable vocals or overused blast beats."
Kill Devil Hill released their self-titled debut album in May 2012.
They have toured the US with rock band Adrenaline Mob.
On March 10, 2014, it was announced that Vinny Appice had left the band in order to commit to other things and projects, and that former Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly was his replacement.
The band performed on Motörhead's Motörboat's cruise in September 2014 and after touring, the band is determined on writing another album with their new member Kelly. The band decided to record at Stagg Street Studios in California with help from engineer Josh Newell.
