Interview with Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth
Conducted by: Carlos M. Llanas
Since the early 80’s, Overkill has been ripping stages and releasing albums consecutively, and to this day, they continue to put on energetic and exciting live shows. They have conquered many fans with their style of thrash metal, and they are considered by many as one of the greatest thrash bands that ever existed; I have to agree completely. How can you not? With classic releases like "Feel the fire" and "Taking Over", they helped pave the roadway for a genre with a scene that has benefit greatly by these records. Sure, the scene has increased significantly since the mid-2000’s, but unlike these "Junior Thrashers", Overkill never forgot, and never forgave.
