We all love a great underdog story, and the history of Seton Hall University radio station WSOU 89.5 FM flows beautifully through that very vein. Legends such as Slayer's Tom Araya, Killswitch Engage, Overkill's Bobby Blitz, Lamb of God + many others have teamed up to tell the tale of WSOU for the upcoming documentary 'Pirates of the Airwaves: The WSOU Story.'
New Jersey thrash legends Overkill have been working on the follow-up to their 2012 full-length, 'The Electric Age.' However, the band unfortunately revealed that the new record, which was originally slated for March, will be pushed back to July. On top of that, Overkill have postponed all of their March tour dates except for the band's U.K. shows.
Two of thrash's legendary acts combined forces to rock back-to-back nights at Stage 48 in New York during their current North American tour. Overkill and Kreator, along with opening act Warbringer, played to a packed house on the first of the two shows.
Here we have two very different singers, but each is a master of their craft. Rob Halford has laid down some of the most devastating shrieks with Judas Priest while Bobby Blitz of Overkill ceases to age and sings with utmost conviction.
Another face-melting thrash tour will invade North American venues in the coming months. New Jersey thrash legends Overkill will co-headline dates with German thrash masters Kreator with opening act Warbringer in tow, making for one of the most must-see metal tours of 2013.
By far, one of our favorite musicians to speak with is Overkill vocalist Bobby Blitz. Always good-natured and full of energy, we spoke with Blitz only a few days before he was forced to drop off Overkill's tour with Testament due to a pneumonia diagnosis.
Overkill have been forced to drop off their 'Dark Roots of Thrash' tour with fellow legends Testament due to health issues with singer Bobby Blitz. Diagnosed with walking pneumonia, the wailing Overkill vocalist was unable to perform in Huntington, N.Y. on Feb. 15. Overkill remained hopeful that Blitz could return to the stage sometime during the tour, but Blitz's condition has worsened to the point where he can not perform.
Testament and Overkill have been rocking stages hard over the past month, but being out on the road during cold and flu season is not always easy. Overkill frontman Bobby Blitz has been dealing with a cold over the course of the trek that recently turned into something more serious.
