Buddy let me hear their new cd.
Shit was kicking!! :rock:
Freshest metal I’ve heard in years.
Last time I remembered the guitarist using a Fortin amp.
It’s just crushing good!
Well to me at least. :D

Same guitarist from WIDE FUCKEN OPEN after all these years. I make an effort to see these guys when they tear through town. Can always depend on them to put on a punishing show!! These guys still put out quality material.

Id say in the past few years “white devil armory” has been my favorite. I measure everything they do against horrorScope. Tough to outdo that CD.

My friend Rich played for Overkill back in the early 1980’s right after Spitz left. I’ve known Dave Linsk (Palinski) through a friend since the early 1990’s. Overkill is cool.

Killer story Dave :thumbsup:
Another bud on here knows them as well.
Really really dig what they are and has been doing.
No straying from that formula for sure!

The change of pace and feel in the pre-chorus ("Cry out!") is damn cool. It's a great metal composition.

Loved Overkill from way back. Years of Decay, Horrorscope, Wide Fuckin' Open, heck, even Gutter and Taking Over were good. Kind of lost track of them during the second half of the nineties, but most everything I've heard still gets the blood pumping.

I've watched a couple documentaries with them where they say still, to this day, it's a grind. They tour, then take a few months off to pay off the tour, then kick it off again. Sad a band that good has to do that, but at least they're still making music.

Been a fan since I first heard them back in 1985! One of the great Thrash Metal Bands back then.

Big fan of their 80's output, up to and including Horrorscope (1991). After that, meh, songwriting got generic and too many lineup changes.

One of my all time favorites. I kind of find the production on Wings Of War a bit dull but still killer. Have you all seen the documentary?

I love Overkill my first concert was when I was 12 years old during their tour for Years of Decay album back with Bobby Gustafason. There were only like 15-20 people there due to the weather but they played like it was a sold out festival. Seen them a ton since then. Looking forward to hearing the new stuff.

I dig Overkill as well and Bobby Blitz is funny as shit! I constantly go back and watch the "Bus Invaders" with him because always gives me a great chuckle. He was hilarious on "That Metal Show" too. The guy just tells hilarious stories and ends them with that raspy, smoker's laugh. Cracks me up. LOL

Have seen them live many times with various lineups. Several times in a small club. Blitz would hang out at the bar before the show. Very approachable and very cool.

Cannavino and gant played on W.F.O (same as horrorscope).

Comeau and marino (the following duo) used mesa tiaxis preamps live. Comeau used a strat plus through the triaxis live, and it sounded like WWIII (in a good way). I walked up to his rack during the show (very small club), and he just smiled

Coma is also my favorite. Perfect album

I dont play bass but want a bc rich spider bass in honor

Awesome band

Yeah, always loved Overkill, Years of decay and Horrorscope are my fave, but the rest have great songs too.

I have a Washburn Southern cross signed by Dave Linsk.

Will check the new album out for sure.

overkill is godhead and in their 35+ year career have never failed or done any stupid regretful shit like "load'' or "risk"
they ALWAYS deliver live
they should have been part of the big 4-5!!!!
they shit on anthrax and metallica
now that slayer is retired i really hope they get their long overdue accolades and move to the top slot.
blitz is a fucking lyrical vocal genius and the best frontman in thrash
period
dd is an incredible riff writer and arranger/producer/engineer
bittner is an asshole but a great drummer

LONG LIVE THE WRECKING CREW
2019-2020 still fucking shit up with blood and iron

I love 'I hear black'. Only wish the production on that was a little better.

I was 15 when Horrorscope came out. Went nuts when I saw it coming out on the release dates schedule at the local music store. I remember how bad I LOST MY SHIT when I was listening to Coma the first time. I couldnt believe what I was hearing. I still get scatterbrained with the same sensation thinking back to those first few moments of the start of that song from the first time I heard it.

I remember doing an open jam in 1990 and Dave was there jamming on my ADA rig that we used for the jam. His band back then was called Loud Linsk, saw them a bunch of times back then at the Stone Pony. My band was supposed to open up for Overkill at the Starland in March but the date changed to when someone in our band is away. Were not a thrash band so I don't think we would have went over anyway.

Love Overkill....for me the best 3 Overkill albums are Under The Influence(My Fav. Overkill album), Years of Decay and Horrorscope......They lost something when they replaced Bobby G. IMO, dude inspired the hell out of me when I started out.

Ran accross this cool vid! Downstrokes from hell! :rock:

Bobby was a beast. Years of Decay is one of my top 10 albums. Probably in my top 5 of thrash albums. Rust in Piece, Years of Decay, Seasons in the Abyss, Practice what you Preach, among the living.

I remember standing in front of him at my first show and just watching him hammer away at Time To Kill.

Love Horrorscope.
Coma is one of my top 3 metal songs.
I gravitate to the Necroshine cd.
So many nuggets it crazy. :rock:

Yeah man. I miss going to music stores and just buying two tapes a week with my allowance. It was so easy to discover great music. Now the market is flooded. A lot of great stuff out there but a lot of mediocre music. We have easier access to music but its like finding a needle in a haystack

Yeah u bet, i also bought about two cassettes a week, and i was excited to get home and pop them in my dual auto reverse getto blaster!!!!! I was in heaven. Still have my collection, just cannot get rid of that.

We have some pretty amazing metal today too though, damn sometimes i just can’t believe the talent the newer generation has, mind blowing sometimes.

Hell yeah, he's awesome!! I was in awe of his playing when I was starting out, I remember hearing Head First thinking GD his guitar sounds like a tank! Some of my fav. thrash albums as well, good/similar taste man! For Testament The New Order was the one for for me, Skolnick's playing on there was like Yngwie level chops and the riffs, melodics and songwriting...man, Skolnick was peak on that album! Fav. Thrash Albums for me were Under The Influence, Peace Sells, The New Order, Among The Living, South Of Heaven(those grooves, evil shit!).....Coroner, Kreator, Sodom, S.O.D. Nuclear Assault. Classic Thrash had some guitar gods for sure(Skolnick, Poland, Vetterli and many more)



Not Overkill but GD, just high energy jammin' this morning lol!:

Ran accross this cool vid! Downstrokes from hell! :rock:




Bobby was a beast. Years of Decay is one of my top 10 albums. Probably in my top 5 of thrash albums. Rust in Piece, Years of Decay, Seasons in the Abyss, Practice what you Preach, among the living.

I remember standing in front of him at my first show and just watching him hammer away at Time To Kill.


Hell yeah, he's awesome!! I was in awe of his playing when I was starting out, I remember hearing Head First thinking GD his guitar sounds like a tank! Some of my fav. thrash albums as well, good/similar taste man! For Testament The New Order was the one for for me, Skolnick's playing on there was like Yngwie level chops and the riffs, melodics and songwriting...man, Skolnick was peak on that album! Fav. Thrash Albums for me were Under The Influence, Peace Sells, The New Order, Among The Living, South Of Heaven(those grooves, evil shit!).....Coroner, Kreator, Sodom, S.O.D. Nuclear Assault. Classic Thrash had some guitar gods for sure(Skolnick, Poland, Vetterli and many more)



Not Overkill but GD, just high energy jammin' this morning lol!:




I loved all that stuff too. Bobby from Overkill lives in my area & if you listen to him tell the story of his time in Overkill....He WAS Overkill (According to Him) He has a Band around here called Satan's Taint & they aren't very good. He's a Great Guitarist but not so great of a person.

Yeah, Bobby's got some serious issues with DD and Blitz. I won't pretend to know all the details, but there've been some odd stories around for a few years at this point.

I kinda like Satan's Taint, but it's not my favorite thing. He definitely still has the chops, but production is a little meh for me.

I have to say Years of Decay ranks really high on my list of favorite albums. Though several other Overkill albums get play time, that one has everything I loved about early Overkill on full display. That guitar tone could crush boulders while still feeling so smooth. The drums were huge and fat. And I don't think anyone will EVER top Skullkrusher for the heavy slow grooves.

I'm so glad I got to grow up listening to these bands find their place in the world. Overkill, Testament, Exodus, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, Coroner, and then watching thrash spawn off all the modern heavier genres. While there is a plethora of music out there right now, and it gets tough to sort through, when you find a gem you can almost always listen to it and think about how these people are building on the shoulders of the bands we grew up listening to.

I was listening to Testament's The Legacy this morning on the way to work. Do or Die still kicks my ass from the very opening. That bent trem picked riff just slays me, and then the chorus comes in and knocks you back. That album and New Order are some of my favorites of all time. Just a master class in musicianship through heaviness.

Makes me want to break out the PA in the cube farm and blast some eardrums.

The stuff of theirs that speaks to me most(aside from Horrorscope which I really like a lot too) was when he was there, to me that was the Overkill sound I liked the most. I don't really care about the drama stuff, but you have to admit also...that aside from Blitz and DD, it's been a constant revolving door of band members for sure. :yes: :lol: :LOL:

I wouldn't say "constant" i would say that they have a lot of line-up issues, mostly due to the fact that, i don't know if they are making the kind of money to live off of without a regular 9-5.

They 100% do not.

There was a documentary a few years back about the metal scene and Blitz was in it saying how, to this day (like I said, a few years ago) they tour, then get regular jobs for a few months to pay off the debt they accrued on the tour and save up to make the next album, then they start over again.

I don't think they're the only band to have to do that either.

I do dislike the revolving door of guitarists. When the guitarists change in a metal band, it's no longer the same band. There have been some over the years that just don't hit me quite right. Which sucks 'cause I like to keep up with my old favorites.

In all honesty, Gustafson was the best of them in my opinion.

Agreed 100% with those sentiments, and my point exactly..... you get the feeling like the guitarist(s) are expendable in the band. I admire their dedication for sure, I'm happy they're still doing it. Last album I picked up was White Devil Armory and I liked a lot of the tracks on there. They still bring it for sure, but those albums I listed above are the ones for me...I do miss the sound Gustafson brought to the band(Under the Influence/Years Of Decay).

This^^^

Might be an unpopular opinion but Overkill easily has been one of the most consistent of the thrash bands throughout the years. While the big four might have better individual releases, Overkill always delivers a quality album. I've also seen them 3 times over the last 20 years and they've been significantly more energetic / interesting live compared to any of the big four playing on smaller stages with less flashy stage show (IE, lower budget). Bobby is easily the best frontman out of the bunch and also the most energetic despite being the oldest of the frontmen.

While i love Alex, like a lot, James Murphy is a seriously crazy good player, my god, he is awesome. You gotta give LOW a couple listens, that album is in my top 3 favorite albums ever. Damn. Trail Of Tears has some of the most tastefull soloing in metal!!!!!

Demonic kicks major as too, sooo heavy.

The Legacy still holds a dear place in my hearth though.

Hell, all of their albums has something special. I like em all!!!!!

I'm an Alex fanboy from the beginning of time, but James Murphy brings it too. Low is absolutely one of my favorite albums of all time. So many great riffs on that album.

The Dude with the Vandenberg is a Guy named Mike, Super nice dude & a Great Player. My Band & his used to play shows together back in the day(2003-2008) I love that video of Bobby Playing with Them. Mike & his crew host nights where all they do is play tribute to the bands that inspire them by playing that bands music Note for Note. They did a Testament Night & killed it!!! :rock: :rock:
