TL;DR | Overkill’s New Album Scorched Is FIRE

This album absolutely rules. For almost 38 years now, Overkill has been arguably the most consistent thrash bands on the planet. New Jersey’s finest have even taken it up a notch on Scorched, which offers some nice surprises in addition to the tried and true, riff-filled, bass-driven brutality that is their signature sound. These guys are in their early sixties, and are still crushing it. Overkill is amazing. Get this album.
