Overkill has been around for ages pretty much staying true to their style. A band that kids picked up on in the mid eighties simply because they made an album called "Fuck You" in a time of moral panic.
Some might claim that they took part in creating the trash genre and that Overkill reside among the metal gods.
Well we think that Overkill were an average band, overrated back in the day. The pure fact that they stayed true to their style over the years has earned them the fame that they possess.
It would be cooler if they actually had produced great music like Metallica or Megadeth.
Overkill sound like any half-hearted trash band out there, not bad, but not certainly worthy of any particular attention either. We suggest that you pick up the new Megadeth album instead.
