The band Kill Devil Hill may be a new name to the heavy metal scene, with just their second album out Revolution Rise they are at the beginning of their career. A career that is shaping up to be a longer one than many of us might of expected. Kill Devil Hill although not a supergroup, at least not if you ask them, is made up of some names you’ve heard and chances are you grew up listening to. Bassist Rex Brown is the former bassist of Pantera, and drummer Vinny Appice is the Ronnie James Dio era of Black Sabbath drummer, plus played on all of the DIO records up until the mid nineties. The guitarist Mark Zavon and singer Dewey Bragg are a little lesser known but there is still a ton of experience between the two of them. Rex, Mark and Dewey join us in the Hangar this weekend to tell us all about this new(er) band.
A little know fact about Mark Zavon is that for just a moment he played in W.A.S.P. so this week we are going In The Vault with Blackie Lawless and original guitarist Chris Holmes as they explain why the wrote the song “Blind in Texas”

Then our Then & Now this week comes from the Ozzy era of Black Sabbath as they are set to tour more in North America and in honor have decided on a new single from their first Ozzy fronted album in 35 years 13.
Then this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack is from the comedic genius that is the autobiographical movie of Howard Stern, Private Parts.
This and another 3 hours of classic metal inside Hangar 19!
