In an age where music is available instantly and bands appear and fade just as quickly, the power and resiliency that is OVERKILLwho’s initial social media was stuffing show flier ads under windshield wipers in the 80s, has remained as resolute as ever, and even more so. New frontiers aren’t often conquered in the modern world of heavy metal, yet OVERKILL remain unfazed by the growing presence of social media, modern internet, a demand for streaming services, and a general sense of competition between the sea of other metal bands trying to make a name for themselves, today. It’s with over 30 years under their leather belts that 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.
