OVERKILL songwriter and bassist DD Verni has plans to release his first solo CD in 2018. Currently, the group is looking for a label to call home. The record is a mix of all of Verni’s influences. Check out the lyric video for “Fire Up” below.
“There’s some metal, punk, and classic rock…..its all in there, from QUEEN to GREEN DAY to METALLICA, I think we covered all the basses!” declares DD.
Verni’s first effort has a host of guitar players doing guest spots on the record. Jeff Loomis (ARCH ENEMY), Angus Clark (TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Jeff Waters (ANNIHILATOR), Bruce Franklin (TROUBLE), Mike Romeo (SYMPHONY X), Mike Orlando (ADRENALIN MOB), Steve Leonard (ALMOST QUEEN), and Andre “Virus” Karkos (DOPE) who also contributed the rhythm guitar tracks. Rounding out the group is former Overkill drummer Ron Lipnicki.
The record was mixed and mastered by Chris “Zuess” Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, QUEENSRYCHE,HATEBREED)
” I’m psyched to get this disc out,” states Verni. “We had a lot of fun and a lot of great players contributed“. In addition to OVERKILL‘s 18 full length releases, Verni has 4 releases with his side band THE BRONX CASKET CO.
