Although everybody seems to have a different account of who came first in the world of New York/New Jersey area thrash metal, it seems certain that New Jersey’s OVERKILL have stayed around the longest, and have never let their fans down by remaining musically consistent and true to their roots for over 30 years.There are few names as well respected as OVERKILL, and with the resurgence of metal in the music world, this band is poised to return to the top. OVERKILL are ready to show mature metal heads they still have it and are geared up to teach the new schoolers exactly how it’s done.
