Bloodstock2.0

Picture the scene: a field in south Derbyshire. One moment, quaint and calm; serene, leafy and undisturbed.

But then, as the sun arises to the midday point one cloudless Thursday in august, thousands upon thousands of heavy metal fans swarmed forth out of the woodwork that is England 2015, to attend the twelfth official Bloodstock Festival (11th open air to be exact).

OVERKILL is now a part of the Nuclear Blast family for the entire world,” states band manager John Finberg. “I have worked with the U.S. office on various projects as of late and they have a true understanding of what to do and how to do it. This upcoming box set is the start of the next chapter in the band’s career.”

Nuclear Blast label manager Gerardo commented on the signing of OVERKILL:

“NB is proud to announce a world-wide deal with Overkill. We’ve worked with them outside North America for the past few years, but it was time to extend the deal and have them join the North American family as well. Nuclear Blast America welcomes the legends!” Read the rest of this entry »

“I’m not sure what the fuck is going on here with these lights!” laughs Bobby, as we board the Overkill tour bus, which does appear to be operating some pulsing disco light setting. “This is like day one for me. I dunno if it bothers you or not – I feel like I’m doing a porn!” He laughs again.

Hang the lights. We got things to discuss. Especially as given that Overkill’s forthcoming new album has been delayed, and with it the rest of the European tour, we’re lucky we’re here at all. With the band about to take in a handful of dates throughout the UK, including a headline spot at Hammerfest, we grab a few moments of frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth’s, one of heavy metal’s nicest guys, time to talk about the new record (It was probably the hardest one to make for me…), the music industry (But for some reason there’s always a want for this stuff. There’s always a need….), seizing opportunities (You know take that chance and if you can and succeed more times than fail you can string days into years and into decades…), and pie…

70000 Tons Of Metal 2014

March 10th, 2014

70000 tons Of Metal is the biggest heavy metal cruise on the planet. It has gained and created a loyal and fanatical following amongst metal fans around the globe in a short few years. Even though there were a lot of discussions, and even some outrage on the official 70000tons forum and social media, about the long silence while waiting to hear about the booking of the bands. However, the whole cruise was a surrealistic experience for journalists and fans alike. Spirits were not dampened by a rainy day which whipped the Caribbean sea and the ship, Majesty Of The Seas, about.  The metallic mayhem on the sea sailed from Miami, Florida to Costa Maya, Mexico and back. Here is the brief write-up of all these bands who appeared on the ship.

OVERKILL – Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth

May 5th, 2013
Overkill promo

BOBBY “BLITZ” ELLSWORTH

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Overkill is a classic thrash metal band, formed in 1980 in New Jersey. The band was one of the early thrash metal bands in U.S., along with such names as Anthrax, Exodus and mighty Metallica, who helped to create the thrash metal scene in the early 80’s. To date, Overkill has released 16 studio albums and sold more than 25 million worldwide. During their long journey, Overkill has gone through many line-up changes. The remaining original members, Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth and D.D. Verni, have successfully guided the band through both good and difficult times and the band is here to stay. In April 2013, Overkill arrived to Finland to do a five-concert mini-tour. I had the chance to sit down with Bobby in Helsinki and we discussed various topics including the recent “Dark Roots of Earth” tour, producing, history, personal life, and the list goes on….
