Album Review

Continuing the artistic renaissance the band started with 2010's Ironbound, Overkill deliver their 17th album, White Devil Armory, a monument to classic thrash that makes it clear the band's recent form is far from a fluke. Their third studio outing in four years, the album finds the band once again going from strength to strength, pursuing their muse with a relentless vigor that imbues their sound with a refreshing directness. Where other bands might get tripped up trying to set the listener up for some kind of heavy metal revelation, Overkill keep things to the point with a seemingly endless barrage of killer riffs delivered with pace and power. This idea is embodied by songs like "Down to the Bone," which explodes out of the gate with crunching guitars and impossibly fast guitars before settling into a classic thrash groove that feels plucked from the genre's heyday. Searing tracks like this highlight the difference between the current wave of classic metal revivalist and the genuine article. Try as they might, bands like Lost Society (who are exceptionally talented in their own right) just can't capture the sense of refinement that Overkill bring to their music. It's an unexpected thing for a band to make it as long as Overkill have, and even rarer is the band that spends their third decade together putting out their best material (and after their iconic frontman had a stroke, no less), but if White Devil Armory is any indication, Overkill don't intend to slow down now that they're at the height of their songwriting power. [White Devil Armory was also released with two bonus tracks.]

Customer Reviews

Still bringin' the goods.

Even after 30 years, Overkill still delivers music sure to please and from the first listen to "Armorist", my attention was immediately caught. Overkill never fails to deliver QUALITY metal, and this song only makes me yearn for the release date to get here quicker! Can't wait to get my hands on this album!

Holy Sh** !!!!!!!

Thrash = Overkill

When I first discovered Overkill it was about 2008. Not to make fans who have known them since the first album feel old, but what I love about social media like Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, it made younger people like myself discover bands like Overkill. This band is a great band and is very consistent with all their albums. Most would say that all their albums sound the same, give or take maybe they do. But like Cannibal Corpse, AC/DC, as well as Slayer, they stuck with what they know and they execute it very well and fans have never complained about it. I have grew to love many of the 80s thrash bands which includes Overkill. You either love them or hate them. I personally love the band and the music.

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Old Bridge Township, NJ

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

New Jersey thrash quartet Overkill were formed in 1980 by vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and guitarist Bobby Gustafson, and also included bassist D.D. Verni and drummer Rat Skates (later replaced by Sid Falck). The band garnered a reputation for brutal, pounding speed and technique, but lacked the musical diversity to compete with heavy hitters like Metallica; still, Overkill built up a strong following in the metal underground with albums like 1985's Taking Over and 1988's Under the Influence....
