BPMD — the new heavy metal juggernaut featuring vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (OVERKILL), drummer Mike Portnoy (THE WINERY DOGS, SONS OF APOLLO), bassist Mark Menghi (METAL ALLEGIANCE) and guitarist Phil Demmel (VIO-LENCE, ex-MACHINE HEAD) — will release its debut album, "American Made", on June 12 via Napalm Records. The 10-track homage to some of rock music's greatest treasures is turbocharged by the experience and enthusiasm of its four creators, and its first single, "Toys In The Attic" — an AEROSMITH classic just begging for a heavy reimagining — is only the first boisterous sliver of proof.

Definitely something I'll check out although I kinda wish they would have dug a little deeper on the tracks they picked. Some of those songs have been covered to death.

I could go the rest of my life without hearing any version of 'We're An American Band' again.

This has been showing up on my Facebook Overkill feed. Seems like a rather cool project.

Sounds good. Just having Blitz working with Phil Demmel is enough to check it out.

Lord knows I love me anything Overkill related so I'm down.

I agree with MG that it would have been nice to see them dig a bit deeper on the song selection, but then I realize that bands mostly cover songs they grew up with and those that are their faves, so I never sweat it too much. I like what I hear so far, though.

Given the name of the band, I can't help but think of the rap group EPMD. Smile

I would be more interested in hearing what originals they'd come up with.

Bump. As the kids say, this album "drops" tomorrow, June 12th. Here's their take on *SIGH* 'We're An American Band'...
