Overkill is synonymous with power, precision and perseverance. Across three decades, the pioneering powerhouse has shaped, refined and steadily broadened a determined style of blue collar power metal, soaring melodic hard rock and genre-defining thrash built from steadfast, muscular pulls at their own proverbial bootstraps. Overkill continues to power ahead through the changing musical landscape, trends be damned, and has delivered an incisively supercharged and ridiculously energized new landmark in the form of The Electric Age.
“Overkill has never had an identity crisis. We know who we are and to chase something else would just kill the purity,” says vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth. “This is who we are, love it or hate it.”
