One of the best food prep albums of all time, next to AC/DC’s High Voltage and Powerage Albums. Highly recommended for onion chopping or otherwise!

It is impossible for me to wrap what is left of my mind around the fact that this just one man making all of this fantastic Thrash. I love to walk to this one it burns off extras calories. If you love Thrash Metal download this one and it will seldom leave your MP3 player.
I dont even know where to start. This band or should I say, Joel Grind just keeps getting better by the album. Their older stuff was amazing to say the least and this album is just a scorcher from start to finish. Its got your catchy chorus’s that make you wanna listen to it again, its got those riffs that make you just want the next album and its got vocals that make you wanna mosh all over the place. This is a great modern death/thrash album, but fits in with something that was released in the 90s. You love old school? You’ll love An Overdose of Death!
Favorite Tracks are “Wild Dogs” and “Nuke The Cross”.
Do yourself a favor and pick this metallic thrash masterpiece up!!!!! F%%K this album RULES!!!! Joel Grind has it down. If you like Bathory, Sarcofago, Broken Bones, Hellhammer etc., you’ll eat this up!!!!! I love the new version of “War is Hell”!!! FEEDBACK, BLOOD AND DISTORTION!!!
I checked this album out when I saw they were on the GWAR bill (who doesn’t love a Gwar a show.) Wasn’t sure what I was in for until I saw the cover art, with the 80’s style radioactive wasteland beast-demons. More retro thrash I thought, and yep that’s exactly what it is. But who cares, this stuff is honest and not derivative enough to be simple rehashing. This is really a fun, drink-informed, aggressive thrash moshing built to rouse crowds and ignite house parties.
All tracks are raging, headbanging tunes of not-so-buzzsaw but grimy, thrashy punk. No gang vocals, just snarling, beer-spewing aggression. The riffs are all great enough to keep you coming for more, and truly catchy in the best thrash sense (melody doesn’t have to be flexing your inner Hetfield/CoC whine.)
Not essential by any means, but one of the better modern thrash albums I’ve listened to. Drink up, loosen your necktie, and give your neck a workout. Feedback, Blood, and Distortion!
