The album that started it all. Overkill launched themselves in the mid 1980’s with this thrash metal classic. Not only does this album shred in every way possible but, at the time it was refreshing as hell. OVERKILL seemed to have their own, identifyable sound. During the time when bands like SLAYER, METALLICA and ANTHRAX were launching themselves as well. OVERKILL were just as good as any of those bands, if not better. They appeared influenced by no one. You could here the sincerity in their sound, pure thrash with a singer that had some serious range. The instruments all complimented each other and created a sound that became all their own. The CD is among their best and serves as the launching pad for a band that would continue on for 20 years. Get this CD, it is pure melodic thrash!
