Overkill is one of the great thrash bands that never seemed to garner the acclaim of its peers. While they've had a few not-so-great releases, they have generally released quality thrash albums (with the later material incorporating a heavier, thicker sound). One thing is undeniable with this band and that is their devotion to staying metal. While most of their peers were toning down their sound to garner more record sales, Overkill were only getting heavier, and for that I respect them. While many of their 90's albums suffer from the curse of sounding too similar, they are still heavy, crushing, thrash metal CDs worth listening to.
After RelixIV, they signed to Bodog music and have a forthcoming release in Fall 2007.
