OVERKILL’S ‘The Grinding Wheel’ Album Out Now!

New York long-time thrash metal masters Overkill have just released their latest slab of audio mayhem, The Grinding Wheel, yesterday via Nuclear Blast Records. Let me tell you this album is intense and pure Overkill all-the-way.

From The Press Release

The Grinding Wheel well surpasses the recent offerings by the Big Four, noble as most of the latter’s recent offerings have been. If DESTRUCTION won the thrash sweepstakes in 2016, consider OVERKILL early on front runners for 2017.”
BLABBERMOUTH (US)

The Grinding Wheel mixes impressively fast old school vibes with a progressive songwriting, killer choruses and the signature OVERKILL groove of the 90s. New Jersey’s Finest once again managed to both keep and evolve their unique sound  This is how traditional fresh thrash should sound in 2017.”
LEGACY (D)

“Fast thrash with a groovy touch, lots of melody and excellent vocals. OVERKILL proves that they are still one of the leading bands in thrash metal. This 18th album is a killer.”
ROCK TRIBUNE (B)

Today, the legendary New Jersey thrash metallers, OVERKILL, release their highly anticipated 18th studio album The Grinding Wheel and unveil another trailer where singer Bobby Blitz speaks about his influences and how he enjoyed to scare his parents with them.
