Legendary New Jersey thrashers, OVERKILL, kick-of their 2017 North American trek with Egyptian themed technical death metal champions and label mates NILE on February 14th at The Trocadero in Philadelphia! The trek stops in Chicago, Anaheim, and Washington, DC before ending at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ.
OVERKILL will be touring in support of their upcoming album, The Grinding Wheel, which will be released February 10th via Nuclear Blast. Recently, the band released the video for "Our Finest Hour". Enjoy an impression of the mighty thrash inferno with this lyric video:
"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."
"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."
"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."
