Legendary drummers and brothers Vinny and Carmine Appice teamed up for a new project called Appice last year and released their debut album, 'Sinister', via SPV/Steamhammer.

Recently the band completed work on a new lyric video for the album's title track which you can watch here:

Carmine Appice tells us:

"The title track, 'Sinister', was originally part of my SLAMM show, which was a percussion extravaganza performed at the MD Fest 2008. Artie Dillon co-wrote it with me and Jim Crean helped add the lyrics. It has an Afro 6/8 feel to it and Vinny and I play different parts. After the bridge Vinny and I take turns and play against each other. The chorus is a surprise, going up-tempo!"
