Jimmy DeGrasso (ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Y&T) laid down the drums tracks on Evil Abounds, the new album from the Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based band THE WORSHYP. The CD, which will be released later in the year, was produced by Glen Robinson, who has previously worked with VOIVOD, GWAR and ANNIHILATOR, among others.
THE WORSHYP founder Marz Nova named the band as a salute to how heavy metal fans love, and almost worship, their music as if it were a religion to them. The name has no ties to any real organized religion.
In the spring of 2010 Marz recruited Danish guitarist Thor Rune and Peruvian musicians Mig Diablo (bass) and KK Devina (drums), both of whom have played with former IRON MAIDEN vocalist Paul Di’Anno.
THE WORSHYP’s sound is based on strong vocal melodies over driving guitar riffs set to today’s lower tunings.
