Overkill are the alpha and the omega of thrash metal. With a career spanning over two decades and 14 full-length albums, Overkill have remained a constant in the metal genre they helped define.
The Jersey workingman's metal monster originally formed as a four-piece. The self-proclaimed "Wrecking Crew" released a handful of albums on the quintessential metal label Megaforce Records in the early '80s. As label mates with such bands as Metallica and Anthrax, Overkill became part of the birth of the East Coast thrash metal scene. The band's relationship with Megaforce culminated in the release of 1991's acclaimed Horrorscope. From there, the band moved on to Atlantic records where they would produce I Hear Black and W.F.O.

After leaving Atlantic Records, Overkill would spend the next 10 years releasing high-powered thrash records and taking on a seemingly endless touring cycle. The band remained true to their thrash metal roots and released some of their best work, including 1999's Necroshine and 2003's Killbox 13, with both records becoming the keystone of thrash metal for fans worldwide.

Overkill have toured the globe endlessly, hitting scores of music venues and participating in all of the heavy European festivals. Gaining legions of metal fans wherever they travel, the band has conquered the globe from the Far East to South America. Overkill have shared the stage with metal icons new and old.

Now with Bodog Music, the band is set to rejoin forces with Jonny and Marsha Zazula, previous owners of Megaforce Records, who are now part of the Bodog Team in the United States. Overkill will unleash its 15th studio album, Immortalis, on October 9, 2007. The upcoming album features Overkill's latest lineup, which, along with founders Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and D.D. Verni, includes guitarists Derek "The Skull" Tailer and Dave Linsk, as well as the newest member to join the band, drummer Ron Lipnicki.

There are few names as well respected as Overkill, and with the resurgence of metal in the music world, this band is poised to return to the top. Overkill are ready to show mature metal heads they still have it and are geared up to teach the new schoolers exactly how it's done.
