White Devil Armory is a stunning thrash metal album from Overkill. This album was released with a lot of high praise and it is not hard to see why. The band sound absolutely stunning as they jump from one great riff to another. To say that there is not a bad song on the album is about as accurate as you could be. Sure the style isn't the most original but they pull it off without sound tired, boring and familiar. It is pure tasteful thrash metal from start to finish.
Fans of Exodus or Destruction will love the lack of subtly in the music. These guys clearly give no s***s towards trends in music as they churn out some fairly old school metal. The focus is less on the song writing and more on providing good catchy music and they do that with ease.
The intense speed metal is made all the sweeter with some excellent heavy production. The guitars have a satisfying metal sound with the drums adding the extra thunder behind the rhythm. It creates a wonderful sound over all, the kind you'd want from this kind of metal.
Overkill are on a roll with a series of fantastic albums and this just adds to the pile. White Devil Armory is a little better then the previous The Electric Age but not by much. The band have clearly got their second wind and much like many '80s metal bands, they are riding on a creative high many years after their commercial peak.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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?
