Carmine Appice And Fernando Perdomo Go For Overload

They style their project as the clash of fire and ice, yet there’s a lot of coolness in Fernando Perdomo‘s guitar art and Carmine Appice‘s thunderous drumming. The two masters have been gravitating towards one another for some time now, exchanging ideas and taking them in the studio where they bounced it all off of one another, the instrumental results being simply called APPICE-PERDOMO PROJECT. Their first record, known as “Energy Overload” and scheduled for the September 24th release, lives up to its title – featuring mostly original cuts alongside two covers: Paul McCartney‘s “Maybe I’m Amazed” – a nice continuation of the recent Fern-helmed "Ram On" tribute to the Beatle’s album – and “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” which Carmine co-wrote with Rod Stewart.

A video for “Rocket To The Sun” from the new album is out now – watch it below. Meanwhile, Perdomo says that APP “is a dream collaboration that I have always wanted to have with one of my favorite drummers of all time.. I love Carmine and luckily we were introduced to each other by Tom Dowd’s daughter Dana and the rest has been a fruitful lockdown collaboration that has yielded nearly two full albums at this point. I love challenging Carmine and vice versa.”
