BPMD (OVERKILL, Ex-MACHINE HEAD) Drops Cover Of AEROSMITH's "Toys In The Attic"

Ex-Dream Theater and Metal Allegiance members too!

BPMD is the new covers project featuring vocalist Bobby Blitz (Overkill), drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo, ex-Dream Theater), bassist Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance), and guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head). BPMD will release their debut album American Made on June 12 and you can stream their cover of Aerosmith's "Toys in the Attic" above.

“I remember waaaaaaaaaaay back when Overkill formed, we were cutting our teeth on covers as I was finding my way around the mic," said Blitz. "The Aerosmith covers were right in my wheelhouse, so when Mike [Portnoy] picked ‘Toys’ to cover, I was like… ‘Hell Yea’!”

“It was tricky because Aerosmith have two guitarists, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, playing different things," added Demmel. "So, as one guitar player, I had to pick a medium place between the two that sounded good. I thrashed it up a little by adding a lot of down picking and some gallops and triplets.”
