You will see this tour and you will like it! Both Testament and Overkill successfully raided 2012 with awesome new albums, and luckily for thrash fans, the two bands have teamed up to create the must-see 'Dark Roots of Thrash' tour, beginning in January 2013.
Overkill are among the bands playing Converse's Represent music festival at the the famed 100 Club in London. The thrash-metal veterans will be performing Aug. 9 at the venue, which will host dozens of other acts during the fest's two week run.
On Saturday, May 12, thrash metal legends Overkill played the final date of their 'Electric Age' tour in front of 2000 rabid hometown fans. For nearly two hours, the band cranked out tracks encompassing their entire career and put on one of the greatest live shows we've ever seen … period.
Overkill have just unveiled their new video for 'Electric Rattlesnake' from 'The Electric Age.' Once you start watching it, your eyes will remain glued to the screen to soak in the compelling plot footage and to experience what feels like a live Overkill performance. It's a captivating six minutes of thinking and thrashing. Nice work, Overkill.
With Meshuggah claiming their latest victory against death metal giants Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah upped their Death Match record to 4-0 with their punishing new track 'Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion.' With four back-to-back wins, the track by the Swedish extreme metal innovators has been declared immortal in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
Loudwire recently had the honor of speaking with one of thrash's greatest frontmen, Bobby Blitz of Overkill. The wailing legend opened up to us about his family, Overkill's new album, 'The Electric Age,' who truly deserves to be in thrash's 'Big 4' and much more.
We recently had the pleasure of attending the official record release party for Overkill's incredibly awesome new album, 'The Electric Age.' After having a few drinks and listening to the album in full, we got the chance to speak with Overkill vocalist Bobby Blitz.
