PostSubject: Overkill's DD Verni to Release Solo Album   Thu Dec 21, 2017 4:28 pm

OVERKILL bassist and main songwriter D.D. Verni will release his first solo album in 2018. The record, which was mixed and mastered by Chris "Zeuss" Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, QUEENSRŸCHE, HATEBREED), is said to be a mix of all of Verni's influences. "There's some metal, punk, and classic rock... it's all in there, from QUEEN to GREEN DAY to METALLICA, I think we covered all the basses!" declares D.D.

The lyric video for the song "Fire Up" can be seen below.

Verni is currently seeking a label home for his first effort, which features a host of guitar players doing guest spots, including Jeff Loomis (ARCH ENEMY), Angus Clark (TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Jeff Waters (ANNIHILATOR), Bruce Franklin (TROUBLE), Mike Romeo (SYMPHONY X), Mike Orlando (ADRENALINE MOB), Steve Leonard (ALMOST QUEEN), and Andre "Virus" Karkos (DOPE), who also contributed the rhythm guitar tracks. Rounding out the recording lineup is former OVERKILL drummer Ron Lipnicki.

"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 albums, Verni has four releases with his side band THE BRONX CASKET CO.

I'm willing to bet when I listen to this album I'll wonder what all the songs would have sounded like with Blitz on vocals.

That was pretty much my reaction when I listened to the sample clip above! Laughing very hard

The chorus on the song is a bit child-ish. As if it was written by teenagers starting their first band.

The music is good though.

Lyric video for new Verni track, "Lost In The Underground." Musically it sounds pretty good... then D.D. starts singing and ruins it. Zzzzzzzzz....



The album comes out Oct 12th if anybody's interested.

Yeah, DD's voice is almost too smooth for the music.

His vocals don't bother me. I recently re-visited the last Bronx Casket Company cd (Antihero) and DD provided all the vocals on that one.

It's not a priority, but I'll probably pick this up at some point.

And welcome back Horseman, ya wanker. Smile

Sounds like second rate Overkill with bad vocals. What's the point?
