Vincent Samson "Vinny" Appice (born September 13, 1957 in Brooklyn, New York), is an American rock drummer and the younger brother of drummer Carmine Appice. He is best known for his work with the bands Dio, Black Sabbath, and Heaven & Hell.

Appice took up the drums at the age of nine, taking lessons from the same teacher as his brother Carmine. When he was sixteen, Appice and his band BOMF met John Lennon at Record Plant Studios, leading to him appearing on several Lennon recordings. He moved on to record with Rick Derringer on Derringer (1976), Sweet Evil (1977), and Derringer Live (1977), before forming his own band Axis and recording It's A Circus World (1978).

Appice joined Black Sabbath in 1980 during the Heaven and Hell tour and appeared on the albums Live Evil (1982) and Mob Rules (1981) . In late 1982 he left Black Sabbath with vocalist Ronnie James Dio and formed the band Dio. They recorded Holy Diver (1983), The Last in Line (1984), Sacred Heart (1985), Intermission (1986), and Dream Evil (1987). In December 1989 Appice left Dio.

Appice joined World War III In 1990 and in 1992 he returned to Black Sabbath for the Dehumanizer album and tour. He then rejoined Dio and they recorded Strange Highways (1994) and Angry Machines (1996).

In 2005 Appice appeared on a rap recording by Circle of Tyrants, whose lineup included Necro, Ill Bill, Goretex, and Mr Hyde, also collaborating with Alex Skolnick. Appice played two shows in Las Vegas with the Sin City Sinners in October 2009.[1] Appice rejoined his Black Sabbath bandmates Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler, and Tony Iommi in 2006 as Heaven & Hell, touring and releasing one studio album, The Devil You Know, before Dio's death in 2010.

He is currently participating in "Drum Wars" shows with his brother Carmine, which feature a guest appearance from vocalist Paul Shortino.

His latest project is the band Kill Devil Hill, with Rex Brown, formerly of Pantera & Down, guitar slinger Mark Zavon and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg. Kill Devil Hill’s self-titled debut album was released May 22 via Steamhammer/SPV and landed at #9 on the Billboard Top New Artist Albums (HeatSeekers) Chart, #41 on the Top Hard Music Chart and #50 on the Independent Album Chart.

Shortly about us

Martiria is an epic/doom metal rock band formed back in the '80s and re-founded (after a long pause) in 2002. Five album published (last one R-Evolution, with ex Black Sabbath Vinny Appice - 2014).

The band was formed back in the '80s. At the beginning the band was very much oriented towards Doom/Metal sounds such as: early Candlemass and Black Sabbath. After releasing just a few demos and featuring various musicians, in 1998 the members of the group decide to take a break for a while in order to experience different projects. (continue)
