Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Carmine and Vinny Appice can be heard on numerous legendary albums and have toured all over the world with some of music's greatest acts. However, with the exception of the live album Drum Wars – Live! (2014), there has been no direct collaboration between the siblings so far. That's about to change. Sinister is the first joint studio album by Carmine and Vinny aka Appice, recorded with the support of a number of prestigious guests.
"Killing Floor" and "Future Past" feature the wonderful Craig Goldy (together with bassist Tony Franklin), Franklin resurfacing, together with Paul Shortino, on "Suddenly" and on "You Got Me Running." Shortino also lends his awesome vocals to "War Cry" and the programmatic "Monsters And Heroes," the latter also featuring Bulletboys guitarist Mick Sweda, while Shortino teams up with Whitesnake stringsman Joel Hoekstra on "War Cry."
Talking of vocals: "Sinister," "Danger" (bass: Phil Soussan), "In The Night" (guitar: Bumblefoot) and "Sabbath Mash" (guitar: Eric Turner, keyboards: Eric Norlander) are all sung by Jim Crean, while Chas West recorded the vocal parts for "Killing Floor," Scotty Bruce featuring on "Future Past" and Robin McAuley on "Suddenly." And what may be the biggest surprise of all on the album is Carmine himself doubling as vocalist on "You Got Me Running."
