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.
