Overkill’s Bobby Blitz And Ex-Members Of Machine Head & Dream Theater Working On New Project


Vio-lence/ex-Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel apparently has a new supergroup in the works that will include Overkill vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth and Metal Allegiance‘s Mike Portnoy and Mike Menghi. Portnoy of course also rose to fame with Dream Theater and more recently has been performing with The Winery Dogs.

Both Demmel and Ellsworth have notably performed with Metal Allegiance in the past. Commenting earlier today, August 05th, on some recent studio sessions at Trident Studios with Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation), Demmel briefly teased the new project via his Instagram:

“10 songs tracked all rhythms last Friday on this BadAss. I am DIGGING the fixed bridge on the Snow White Demmelition Fury!! I lived on the Floyd for so long but the tidesachangin’!! Thanks @officialjacksonguitars this is a production model that just killed it! Soon to be announced Project with Portnoy/Blitz/Menghi coming soon…….”
