Overkill have become known as one of the most consistent and enduring bands in the world, this has more to do with their stubbornness in not really altering their style than actual consistent musicianship. Over the last 2 decades Overkill albums were plagued with fillers and only a couple of good tracks. They also inherited groove elements into their music in the early 90's which have remained ever since. Horrorscope was their last brilliant album but that was 20 years ago, can a band really still have it after so long. Well the simple fact is Overkill have delivered what will probably go down as a thrash classic, every song is brilliant obviously some are better than others but none are bad.

Blitz is as powerful as ever, he seems to get better with age and whereas people like James Hetfield are a shadow of their former selves Blitz is awesome. D.D Verni provides a powerful bass back bone and new boy Ron Lipincki is phenomenal on the drums his intensity is neck breaking. Derek Tailer is pretty weak on rhythm and is carried along by D.D and Dave Linsk who puts in his best lead performance ever, his solo in the soft part of the title track is fantastic. Overkill would really benefit from 2 leads where they could trade of one another Al Pitrelli or Jeff Waters maybe? Still even with that glaring weak point in the band they have still put together a great album.

I won't review every track but the best are the title track, the change of pace at about 3 mins in is nothing other than awe inspiring, it's brilliant; Overkill should have done this more throughout their career. Bring me the night is powerful as anything and Killing for a Living is just so cool. The goal is your soul has some nice eerie guitar picking.

I have loved overkill since "Feel The Fire" came out in 1985 and they have never ceased to amaze me with the quality of their albums and E.P.s since then. The creative genius of this band is astonishing to say the least. Overkill are the perfect marriage of great song writing, musical proficiency, artistic vision and a work ethic that would shame most marathon runners into oblivion. Overkill seem to be the band that would not die! There very few official Overkill releases that I do not own and the reason that I don't have them is that they are very difficult to source and can be extremely expensive! This album is a perfect Thrash Metal album as only Overkill can deliver it. If you love great Thrash Metal then Overkill should be one of your top five Thrash Metal Bands and you should own as many of their releases as you can possibly get a hold of. Metallica may be bigger than Overkill but they don't have the Thrash Metal integrity that Overkill ooze from their every pore, Overkill are perennial and remain influential and relevant to this day. May Overkill Rule forever!!! This album is a must have and is astonishingly good to say the least!!!

"Ironbound" is a sound of a band on terrific form and the music pretty much speaks for itself. 'Overkill' are a NJ American thrash band that have been swinging the wrecking ball now for over 30 years, and have 17 albums now strapped under they're collective belts. Despite a series of poor/ filler albums during the nineties and early 00's there was some signs of revitilisation on the relatively excellent "Killbox13":- this seems to have predictably translated into a full-blown masterpiece with 2010's "Ironbound".

Together with the alternative big four of 'Kreator, Overkill, Testament and Exodus', time seems to know no bounds as these guys are playing and partying like any youthful band in they're ultimate prime. This CD is simply a modern classic as if it had been released during the eighties it would have been recognised as so. From the eight minute attack of "The green and black" fast lines, riffs and classic melodies punctuate the affair with compulsion and with 'skillmanship' in the arrangements. Soundwise this could have easily come out in 1990 were it not for the production values.

One of the band's finest albums and they're first with an inked deal with Nuclear Blast. "Bring me the night" has to be my favourite song outright but this is so close to perfection it's unreal. Absolutely fantastic disc!.,

In the year of 2009 and 2010 (so far) we had some thrash releases like "Endgame" (by Megadeth), "World Painted Blood" (by Slayer) and "Hordes Of Chaos" (by Kreator), but nothing is better than "Ironbound" by Overkill.
This album is filled up with the 80's thrash sound and a bit with more current sounds. Personally I believe that this is the best album Overkill has ever recorded. From start till finish you get 100% of thrash melodies and some lower tempo music here and there.

The album starts off with "The Green And Black": The song has a nice bass intro with a nice guitar riff. Before you know it you have a thrash song in you face and you head banging non stop until it finishes. The song features a number of "changes" and keeps the listener interested until the end.

"Ironbound": Here we have the title song. This one is filled up with the 80's thrash sound. CAUSION don't listen to it while you are driving, probably you will get a speed ticket.

"Bring Me The Night": This is the official video clip of the album, so most of you will know what this song features. This song is once again full on thrash song featuring fast signing and screaming by Bobby. We also have fast drumming and great guitar riffs and solos. 100% 80's thrash sound!

"The Goal Is Your Soul" and "The Head And Heart": Great titles. All the metal songs should have titles like these ones. Here we are dealing with the dark side of Overkill without loosing its thrash sounds.

"Give A Little": Nice thrash song with second/ back-up vocals on the chorus. Although a lot of people might get tired of this song as it follows the same structure throughout (for example the same drum beat).
