Label: Nuclear Blast Records – NB 4407-1
Released: February 22nd 2019
Style: Thrash metal
Limited edition, black double vinyl. These New Jersey natives are prepared to unveil their latest offering The Wings Of War. With 10 tracks and fifty one minutes long, their 19th full length album is the ultimate combination of sickening brutality and addictive melody. It was yet another incredible album cover design by Travis Smith that sparked the idea of what to name this next album. With 5 of the iconic Overkill winged skulls brooding powerfully around the table seemingly prepared for battle,The Wings Of War simply rolled off the tongue.
OVERKILL is experiencing a new chemistry this time around, truly giving the record a unique feel. The writing was funneled through its familiar foundation, but now had a fresh influence and energy that inspired the entire band. Recommended for fans of Exodus, Testament, Metal Church, Megadeth, Death Angel.
