Cane Hill’s Elijah Witt: My Dream Supergroup

Cane Hill, 2019
Published on:

New Orleans metal crew Cane Hill refuse to be pinned down. Since their formation in Louisiana’s swampy climes in 2011, they’ve cycled through an array of different sounds, from hooky metalcore (2015’s self-titled release) to Slipknotian nu-metal (2016’s Smile) to psychedelic-tinged groove metal (2018’s Too Far Gone) to, most recently, grungy semi-acoustic rock, as heard on their 2019 record Kill the Sun, which harks back to Alice in Chains’ groundbreaking EPs Sap and Jar of Flies, as well as to the iconic Nineties MTV Unplugged performances by bands such as AIC and, of course, Nirvana. Cane Hill are currently wrapping up the final shows of their first tour of the year, which has seen them opening for Tremonti and Sevendust, and they already have a slew of dates lined up for the summer in Europe and the U.K., where they will hit some of 2019’s biggest rock and metal festivals including Download, Full Force and Resurrection Fest.

Amid all this activity, we caught up with frontman Elijah Witt to ask him what his dream supergroup would be, with no limitation as to who the various players could be, alive or dead, classic or contemporary, metal or not, etc. He thought about it a bit, then hit us with the surprising, funny but also very honest answer below. We cannot knock it.

Vinnie Paul

‘Cause he was the drummer of Pantera.

Dimebag Darrel

‘Cause he was the guitarist of Pantera.

Rex Brown

‘Cause he was the bassist of Pantera.

Me

Because I wish I was in Pantera.
