Product Description

Although everybody seems to have a different account of who came first in the world of New York/New Jersey area thrash metal, it seems certain that New Jersey's Overkill have stayed around the longest, and have never let their fans down by remaining musically consistent and true to their roots for over 30 years. Through much hard work and a slew of infamous live performances at New York area clubs like L'Amours, Overkill established a reputation as a blue-collar, working man's metal band. After the band released a self-financed EP in 1984, Overkill broke onto the scene in 1985 with Feel The Fire, a crushing thrash assault from the self-proclaimed "Wrecking Crew". originally consisting of vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, bassist D.D. Verni, guitarist Bobby Gustafson, and drummer Rat Skates - were on a tear, borrowing heavily from punk rock roots while adding a venomous metal crunch that allowed them to compete favorably with peers like Testament, Anthrax, and Megadeth.

Numerous classic albums followed including 'Taking Over' and 'Horrorscope' and in 2009 Overkill signed a contract with Nuclear Blast and released the eagerly awaited and acclaimed "Ironbound". Headlining tours ("Killfest") across the old continent and successful gigs on almost every big European festival followed. This album took Overkill back where they belong: the top!2012 unleashed "The Electric Age",where they refreshed and modernized the Overkill trademark.

Laid down at Gear Recording studio in NJ and produced by the band and mixed by Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Devin Townsend), Overkill's 17th studio album sees them in obscenely rude health.Thundering rhythms built on D.D. Verni's bass and blistering riffs mixed with Blitz's authentic howl are spread all over the likes of 'XDM', 'Where's The Smoke' and 'King Of The Rat Bastards'. Having steamrollered the UK on a March club tour, including a brutal performance at Hammerfest, Overkill remain the real deal live and on record.

It is hard to believe that a thrash metal band can record seventeen studio albums with out becoming boring and samey. The repetition of the heavy metal sub genre is often plagued with a lack of creativity and most bands tend to sound the same. So to hear an old timer band like Overkill churn out a fresh energetic album is an absolute delight.

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.

Well, what a surprise, it's another great album by Overkill. For a band to be this consistent for this long is unprecedented, never mind the fact that they're still a devastating live act. White Devil Armory is of the same high standard that the fans have come to expect - OK, it doesn't do anything particularly new, but it does add a bunch more songs to potential setlists which are sure to go down well.

Opening with the droning synth of XDM, it's then straight into fifth gear with the pounding drums, attacking bass and reckless riffage of lead single Armorist. If Overkill are going to mellow with age, it's certainly not going to happen any time soon when they're putting out fist pumpers like this. Everyone gets a look in here, Ellsworth in as throat tearingly good form as ever and DD Verni's bass sounding lethal, not to mention Lipnicki's positively ballistic drums and the furious fretwork of Linsk and Tailer. This really is everything Overkill are all about, with a trademark bass led tempo changing bridge to die for followed by frantic soloing. Then comes Down To The Bone, riffs and drums mirroring each other to kick off another number with an instantly singalong chorus. Frantic drum work propels Pig along at a fair pace, but for me this is one of the weaker tracks as it doesn't really do enough to stand out from its peers, as well as feeling slightly repetitive by its end. There's a nice bridge and solo, but there's better elsewhere on the album. The next number, in fact, second single Bitter Pill. It's a slower start for this one, with eery guitar work almost reminiscent of Coma from the seminal Horrorscope.

Another great slice of old school thrash metal from Overkill, a band that rarely disappoint and have been on something of a roll in recent years.

It's fast, it's catchy, it's brimming with energy and it thrashes hard. If you've any love for 80s thrash then it's another must buy.

This is Overkill's 17th studio album and yet another great slab of thrash metal from New Jersey's finest. WDA is kind of a mix between Ironbound & The Electric Age like some of the other reviewers have stated. First seen this band back in 1987 at "The Christmas On Earth" gig in Leeds and you have got to give these guys credit for still producing great music. \m/

A really solid album, too early to say if its "epic" but its certainly "Thrashtastic" In terms of sounds I guess its a natural progression from Ironbound & The Electric age. Essentially its Overkill doing what they do best.

To those wondering about the vinyl specifics - its a gate fold sleeve, on black 180g vinyl and the sound quality is excellent.

Overkill's best album in years; great songs, fab playing... Awesome!!

Improbable I know, but I do hope that New York's finest never stop. Metal and music in general will be poorer without them. Keep taking the vitamins guys!! ;-)

Good album. Although not in the same class as Ironbound. Good that a band like Overkill are still around, they can still do it as White Devil Armory has some fine tracks for your enjoyment.
