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….

Overkill – Bobby Blitz

September 2nd, 2012

Electric Age.jpg

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.

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival – Helsinki Finland June 27-29, 2012

July 28th, 2012

Tuska Open Air 2012

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

June 27-29, 2012

The Tuska Open Air Festival is definitely a real metal festival institution amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. This current area, Sivulahti, almost located in the heart of Helsinki, only a few kilometers away from the downtown, is a new home for Tuska for the second time. Suvilahti is more like an industrial environment with the burning and hot asphalt underfoot. When raining, at least the area won’t turn to one hell of a big mud fest.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be at the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date.

The line-up looked once again – amazing. Megadeth and Ministry and of course the Swedish war trad metallers were headliners, but Lamb Of God had to pull out of Tuska because of the arrest of the frontman in Republic Czechia and was replaced by Finntroll and Animals As Leaders had to cancel as the band managed to miss the flight. Of course a few cult metal bands like Saint Vitus, A.R.G. could be witnessed. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 26,000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and enjoy the sun and rain.

Lipnicki was in the audience watching the jam session and when “Seek and Destroy” began he was heard to shout “Oh, I know that song!” then jumped unto the stage and took the reins from MEATSHANK drummer Shane Cook. It was an unforgettable moment that will forever live in the memories of those involved.

MEATSHANK’s Scavengers album is streaming in its entirety at meatshank.stereokiller.com. Please get in touch for digital review/radio copies and/or to set up an interview.
