    Over Kill delivers TRUE Thrash Metal! A MUST!


    If it is old school Thrash Metal you are looking for, you have definitely found it! Over Kill does not disappoint, each song is as heavy as the next, TRUE Thrash Metal. This is as great a start as you can get if you are beginning an Over Kill music collection. Over Kill throughout the years have been steadfast and loyal to the Thrash Metal sound and genre, comparing "The Years Of Decay" to their other albums is non sensical, for I admire the entire catalog of albums from this band. "The Years Of Decay" in my opinion, stands out from the vast Thrash Metal album crowd, since it's release in 1989. Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth on vocals and D.D. Verni on bass deserve all the accolades. Bobby Gustafson on guitar and "Sid" Falck on drums are both tremendous players on this album as well. I really recommend "The Years Of Decay" to all Metal and Thrash Metal fans alike. New Over Kill fans cannot pass over this heavy hitter. The liner notes are what you look for - 12 pages with complete lyrics, 4 pages of band photos, credits and lots of thank yous.

    Overkill is one of those thrash metal bands that put out excellent albums no matter what. Their sound is old school, but heavy enough that they earned the self-proclaimed nickname "The Wrecking Crew." The Years Of Decay proves this and then some. Listen to the neck-breaking thrasher Elimination and the groove-laden Playing with Spiders/Skullkrusher and you'll get a good idea. Highly recommended.
