Overkill Unveil Lyric Video for ‘Mean, Green Killing Machine’

Subscribe to Loudwire on

With their latest album, The Grinding Wheel, set to be released Feb. 10, thrash legends Overkill have revealed another track from the disc. Check out the lyric video for “Mean, Green Killing Machine” above.

At more than seven minutes, it’s longer than the usual Overkill song, but maintains interest throughout with catchy riffs and Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth’s unmistakable vocals.

As to what the album title The Grinding Wheel signifies, Ellsworth explained it in a recent interview. “When we were looking for a title, when you think in terms of the word grind, you think of something that is relentless and doesn’t wear down, whether it be an old stone mill or something metallic where sparks are flying through it,” Ellworth states. “It’s about an all-purpose tool through all time. It’s a good, quality, Overkill record.”

In the spring, Overkill will be hitting the road in support of the album alongside Nile. A few of the dates also feature Amorphis and Swallow the Sun. The trek kicks off Feb. 14 in Philadelphia.
