Author Benedetta Baldin - 22.5.2024

Overkill bass player D.D. Verni, who had to miss the band’s Latin American tour due to shoulder surgery, made his return to the live stage this past Friday at the Milwaukee Metal Fest held at The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was temporarily replaced by former Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. He stated:

D.D.’s amazing, man. Look, I may be David Ellefson, but I ain’t no D.D. Verni, man. I mean, that guy, he’s a masterful songwriter. His arrangements are killer and his parts are very clever and cool. And so, yeah, it’s got my thrash chops up and it’s an honor to just step in and help them out.

The band is touring to promote their 20th album “Scorched” released one year ago.
