  • Motorhead’s release of OVERKILL, originally released in 1979, is a headbanging classic. Back in the late 70s, nobody, & I mean nobody was playing faster, thrashier, & more aggressive than Motorhead. Simply put, they helped re-invent the genre of heavy metal that was started in the early 70s with Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, among others. Motorhead helped usher in a new subgenrte of heavy metal called thrash metal (aka speed metal). Motorhead helped usher in the NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL in the late 70s-early 80s. Lemmy Kilmister’s trademark vocals & aggressive bass playing, along with the aggressive drumming of Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, & the thrasy manic guitars of “Fast” Eddie Clarke makes up the classic Motorhead line-up. OVERKILL is one of their accomplished releases in the early days of the band. THe band is in classic form on the title track, “Stay Clean”, “(I Won’t) Pay Your Price”, & “No Class”. OVERKILL is a great way for a new fan of heavy metal to be introduced to the legacy of Motorhead. Without Motorhead, there would be no Metallica, no Anthrax, & no Megadeth.Do yourself a favour & pick up this disk today!
