I have held back from writing a review for this album because it hit me with waves of different feelings. In other words, I have refrained from reviewing it because I didn't really know how to write a fair review. Ultimately, however, the simplest review is to say that Overkill have maintained their generally solid standard and remain on fine form. That's all you need to know but I will qualify that summary if you care to read on...

Ironbound, released two years ago, was a considerable return to form. It's not that Overkill had ever dropped the ball but, maybe, they started cruising a bit. Not so with Ironbound; it was filled with plenty of catchy and fierce riffs, a great production and enough energy to warrant a thrasher's undivided attention. I was considerably impressed and I knew it was a tall order to succeed. So, on my initial listen of The Electric Age, I felt myself underwhelmed. There were bits that were immediate but, on the whole, the songs flew by without hooking into me with any depth. It struck me as a reasonable album but little more. Like I said, I was underwhelmed.
However, writing a review at that point would have certainly been rash. The songs began to fit themselves into my psyche and to really grip me, the opener, Come and Get It, is a great start (in fact, I always thought that) and then there's Wish you Were Dead, Black Daze and the excellent lines of Old Wounds, New Scars ("Got a lot of mouth for a Jersey white boy"; surely about a certain TV show?). In fact, most of the songs have their merits. So, my second reaction was that this was a more subtle but equally excellent follow-up to Ironbound.
HOWEVER, again this would have also been rash. The album's good, arguably great. However, there is a reason it lacked the immediacy of its predecessor.

Overkill's sixteenth release sees the band once again returning to a straightforward and classic Thrash Metal sound, much like their previous release, 2010's 'Ironbound'. The album is jam-packed full of tasty riffs, head-crushing drumming, molar-rattling bass guitar lines, gritty, in-your-face vocals and a production sound that allows you to hear every instrument clearly (Bass included, of course). Some of my current favourite tracks from this release are, 'Come and Get It', 'Electric Rattlesnake', and 'Drop the Hammer Down', and that list seems to grow with every listen. The band is really on top form; no pulling punches, no stylistic deviations to appear popular with newer trends in Metal, a solid production sound and fantastic songwriting all make this album a real classic. Thrash fans won't be let down by Overkill's second return to what this kind of music was always about, and I can't reccomend this album enough.

The limited CD+DVD hardback release is an absolute must if you're an Overkill fanatic or a Trash enthusiast. The booklet is a larger size making reading it much easier as oppsed to standard CD booklets, albeit it is stapled into the binding, and the DVD is a fantastic (If somewhat short) watch. The current price (£13.99 on Amazon in April 2012) is very fair considering that what you get is considerably more attractive than the standard digipack layout, and it really is a must buy if, like me, you like collectable editions of the music you love.

A fantastic album, an even better collector's item, and it won't make a massive dent in your wallet as well as leaving you banging your head all day long. What more could you ask for?

Ironbound is one of my favourite thrash albums of all time not just of the new thrash age. Although I was looking forward to its follow up, the next album rarely matches such a masterpiece. Although 'The Electric Age' is not on a par with 'Ironbound' it comes very close. 'The Electric Age' has more in common with the 2nd half of Ironbound. The relentless pace and agression spit bile right across this album with very little let up making the music very exciting and full of energy. This does make the songs blend together but with repeated listens they grow into their own identities. The performances are superb with Lipnicki in particular breathing new life in these old thrashing dogs. But it is Blitz who really impresses on this disc. Whatever is needed to sing thrash he has in spades and then some. His performance is quite astonishing at times. It might not have the immediate hooks of Ironbound but it is an impressive return for a rejuvinated thrash band and an album that is on par, and at times passes, the quality of their very early releases.

Overkill's The Electric Age, leaves off where Ironbound Finnished..From the first track "Come And Get It" to the last track "Good Night", you get 10 songs of pure thrashtastic mayhem...With glorious hints of classic Overkill thrown in to boot....I have followed Overkill since the debut Feel The Fire in the early eighties and have been hooked ever since...The fact that they keep coming back year after year with ever increasing venom and brain melting riffs, just leaves you forever wanting more...For me the outstanding tracks on this album are "Electric Rattlesnake", "Black Daze", "Old Wounds, New Scars" and "21st Century Man, but don't get me wrong every track is excellent...Buy it and prove me wrong !!!! See you at the killfest tour in October !!!!! Play it loud my friends !!!!!!The Electric Age
