Early praise is mounting for 'REVOLUTION RISE':
"A spectacular sophomore effort that hits all the right buttons... Expertly played, pristinely produced, catchy (but not tacky) and richly textured, 'REVOLUTION RISE' is a monster of an album!" -About.com / Heavy Metal
"An earthquake inducing album... The new record is a sweltering masterpiece that crackles with intensity and rhythmic syncopation." -The Front Row Report
"The first KILL DEVIL HILL record kicked everyone in the ass. The second, 'REVOLUTION RISE', will not only kick your ass, it will crush your ears and your mind as well... It's loud, it's dirty, it's KILL DEVIL HILL!" -The Hellion Rocks
Featuring PANTERA and former DOWN bassist REX BROWN, former DIO, BLACK SABBATH and HEAVEN AND HELL drummer VINNY APPICE, ex-PISSING RAZORS singer DEWEY BRAGG and acclaimed session/touring guitarist MARK ZAVON, KILL DEVIL HILL combine a classic feel with fresh energy on their sophomore release.
'REVOLUTION RISE' was produced by KILL DEVIL HILL and Jeff Pilson, and mixed by Jay Ruston [STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX]. The album features artwork by Sam Shearon, whose past work includes ROB ZOMBIE, IRON MAIDEN and FEAR FACTORY.
Says REX BROWN of the album: "This new KILL DEVIL HILL record is definitely one of my favorite moments of my career - it's got balls, great melodies, awesome guitar riffing and a low end that'll set your ass on fire! The album far exceeds our wildest expectations and we can't wait to take this music out on the road and share it with all of our friends and fans. Buckle your seat belts, we're all in for one hell of a ride!"
