Let’s face it, Overkill is the best speed metal band left from the 80’s. Metallica sold out, Megadeth is on their way. Overkill, however, continues to be be a premier metal presence. This album captures the sheer energy that is present at an Overkill show. Having seen the band 6 times, and on the tour this album was recorded on, I have to say this album is OVERKILL. This album has all the best of Overkill, from their very first album up to WFO. Anyone who has every seen Overkill live knows that this is band that is at its best live. Wrecking Your Neck captures that and makes you wish you were back at the show in the pit.
2002 remastered live album from the pioneers of riffing metal, performing an amazing set of hard-hitting Budgie favorites. Their first live concert recorded specifically for official release. Noteworthy Productions Ltd.

As great as this concert is on CD, it was even better being there. I went with 4 friends and spent most of the time in the mosh pit. It was my first real introduction to this band. Up until this point I only knew “Powersurge”. Afterward I became I fan for life, and they have only gotten better.(A rarity in the world of metal). This CD has a special place in my collection.
It is not that often that i agree with a person who has reviewed a CD. But, I have to say. I completely agree with these 2 that I read. Over Kill is the most intense band ever. I was lucky enough to see them live. And I must say, I was never more swept away by music. I have seen concert footage from the day when Over Kill played to 15,000 people. And been in the crowd for only 1,500. And Bobby “Blitz” is the exact same in both cases. Never stops, never quits. He screems like there are 200,000 people begging for him to make them hear it! And when most band’s like Metalligreed would have cancelled. He went in and killed the crowd with ear crushing screams, and thunderous growls. The only negative thing i could ever say about them is this… ” please for the love of god, get rid of Joe Comeau” He is really holding them back. I am going to purchase this CD again. For the simple fact that I wore my first one out!
If you buy only one Overkill album, make sure you buy this one. This is one of the best live albums that I have heard in a while. It has newer material, older material and even a little surprise thrown in on the last song. The sound is great and you can really hear the crowd, which makes the album more enjoyable. After seeing Overkill live, I can definitely say that this album does them justice. This should be in every person’s collection, especially if they are an Overkill fan. There is not one bad song on here. For a band that doesn’t get the credit they deserve, Overkill consistently puts out some excellent music.
