This track was originally recorded for the Megaforce compilation "The Megavault" and is also included on the " Deeper Into the Vault " compilation. A bootleg of a bootleg. This disc features rare demo tracks and some live material as well, including the Overkill EP, the Power In Black demo, a live promo, Live 'Kill and four songs recorded live in Europe. Tracks are from the "Power in Black" demo. As far as I know, besides the Metal Massacre compilation this is the only place that "Death Rider" has ever been released.
I don't think "The Beast Within" has ever been released officially. Not sure why these two tracks weren't rerecorded for "Feel the Fire" as both of them are prime Overkill. This was originally released on Reborn Classics, my copy is a perfect reproduction, complete with all the color inserts.
Not exactly sure of the year of release on this bootleg. Overkill - Taking Over Megaforce This was actually the first Overkill album that I ever purchased. Considering I was from New Jersey and was heavy into the local metal scene back in the early 80's, I'm not sure what took so long for me to discover them. However, when I did, I couldn't stop playing them. I spun side two of the vinyl continually as it contained some killer hooks and riffs.
Fortunately more thought provoking lyrics would come in the future. Still, there is no denying that Overkill's "Taking Over" is one of the classics of heavy metal. Many regard it as one of the albums that defined thrash metal as a genre. This original EP released in was banned for a long time.
Hmmm, I wonder why?! This re-release contains a few bonus tracks including a live version of Black Sabbath 's "Hole in the Sky" plus four studio demo cuts. The live material is ultra cool and the main reason I bought this EP. NYC attitude set to music. Indeed it is one of Overkill's best albums. Why this album didn't push Overkill to the top of the heap along with the Big Four of Thrash, I'll never understand.
The production is raw, the performance is chock full of energy with an almost punk like fury and the songs are fast, heavy and memorable. Bobby Gustafson is a true shredder. The man wrote great riffs that were heavy, mostly fast and catchy as a big old night crawler on a hook. Together with Blitz's screaming vocals and D. The album closes out with the last song of the Overkill trilogy.
Overkill - The Years of Decay Atlantic When I first got this disc some years ago, I must confess that I thought it sounded like the left over tracks from the "Under the Influence" session.
Perhaps after totally loving "Under the Influence" I had my expectations up to high. However, over the years I have come to appreciate this disc as much as the others and list it as a classic thrash metal platter. Tracks like "Elimination" are classic Overkill. Blitz's snake like hiss was improving with each album.
His ear-piercing shriek on "E. This song, I have read, is actually "Overkill IV" but for some reason it wasn't named as such. Verni were at each other throats. It was also sandwiched between two of the greatest thrash platters ever recorded "Horrorscope" and "Under the Influence"however it is still classic Overkill and contains some timeless metal.
Superb live bootleg featuring some material that I hadn't heard live before. The venue is not listend on this disc, however, tracks are from a different show than the rest of the disc. Tracks were apparently recorded at the Ritz in NY, as Blitz can be heard welcoming the audience to the Ritz and telling everyone to give it up for Dark Angel and Biohazardwho apparently opened the show.
The sound quality is slightly better on the first half of the disc. The only other info given is that it is an "excellent Radio Show Recording.
Overkill - Horrorscope Atlantic Overkill was at their peak here. Blitz's high pitch shriek fit in perfectly. When asked in Metal Maniacs which album Blitz would pick as his favorite Overkill thrash disc, he picked this one. I would agree, this disc is simply fabulous! Even the oddball cover of Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein" rocks!
Darn, see how that works! Overkill - I Hear Black Atlantic Uh, oh, Overkill slow down a bit for this one and drop much of the punk influence. This one sounding more Metallica -like than anything they have ever done before. Overall, this is a great album, although uncharacteristic for Overkill, if not a bit more musically mature than past releases.
For many years I saw copies of this in used bins, but I haven't seen one recently. Overkill - W. Atlantic Undone " 9. The mix on this album is absolutely terrible. The bass guitar dominates the mix, but it is so clanky and annoying that I can't stand it. Too bad because the music is top notch thrash metal. This is one of the first Overkill albums I bought on cd after getting rid Drunken Wisdom - Overkill - MP3 Collection (CDr) my vinyl collection some years before.
It took me a long time to get back into Overkill because of it. Finally I bought "Taking Over" and then the scurry to re-build my Overkill collection was refueled. This would be their last major label release. I've heard people complain that Overkill are still doing the same kind of music, yet it's these same people who are complaining about bands like Metallica and Megadeth changing styles.
Well, I applaud Overkill for staying true to themselves. Overkill is Overkill, they don't pretend to be anybody else. Blitz and crew have a new label and have recruited two new guitar players who seem to have motivated the whole band a bit. The sound, while still retaining the speed metal title, has changed a bit. I ate this album up, playing it over and over again. Pales slightly in comparison to "From the Undergound and Below" and "Necroshine" however.
I have two copies of this CD. The copy to the far left is the European tour edition that contains three bonus tracks, a tour poster, different cover art and an extra picture disc, which oddly enough doesn't contain any music. Can't believe it's only a b-side track and not an album track, Drunken Wisdom - Overkill - MP3 Collection (CDr). Those are good things. This album, as well as "The Killing Kind," seemed to be Overkill attempting to be taken more seriously.
The punk influences of the past are just about gone and some more modern grooves are creeping in. There are even some samples thrown in here and there, which accounts for the slight industrial tinge the album has.
Now, don't think that Overkill has Drunken Wisdom - Overkill - MP3 Collection (CDr) out to trends, as this is still pure unadulterated heavy metal but their sound has progressed a bit over the years. This is actually a nice change as compared to the play it as fast as you can attitude of the past. Yes, an Overkill ballad. Drunken Wisdom - Overkill - MP3 Collection (CDr) of all, it isn't bad; I actually enjoyed hearing the more melodic nature of this track.
I am not exactly sure if this is true, but with Blitz dealing with some sort of cancer, this song may be a reflection of that experience. I really like this disc a lot. It's probably my favorite post "Horrorscope" Overkill album and one that has frequented my CD player over the years. The metal onslaught continues. There really isn't much difference between the two stylistically. Since I wore out "From the Underground" from playing it so much, it was cool to finally get a new disc from Overkill that I could also play the crap out of.
A reviewer from Metal Maniacs said this was one of the best metal releases of I agree with that, but I still like "From the Underground" a little better. Still, there is some excellent material on this disc, including the incredible speed metal title track, "My December", and "Let Us Prey".
This song, as well as most of the rest of the disc, features some stellar guitar solos as well. Unfortunately this is something missing in much of the heavy music of the late 90's. Fortunately, Overkill have never been a band to care about trends and are one of the few bands that are still carrying a torch for real heavy metal. However, that is not to say that Overkill sound exactly the same as they have since their inception. As a matter of fact, much of the material on this disc has a bit more groove to it than the band's pure thrash metal discs of the past.
I must admit that are a few tracks I did not care for as much like "Stone Cold Jesus", probably as much for the lyrical approach as for the music itself. As usual, Blitz seems to have a chip on his shoulder regarding organized religion and Christianity in particular, although the lyrics throughout this album are a bit more poetic and open for interpretation than some of the band's past discs.
Overall, another fine metal platter from one of the few heavy metal band's to survive the 90's with some musical integrity.
