Overkill, Vader, God Dethroned, Warbringer, Evile and Woe of Tyrants

Overkill has reached the quarter-century mark, but for some reason they still seem like the kid in the back of the class, desperately waving their hand to get the teacher's attention. Overshadowed by looming juggernauts like Slayer and Megadeth, the Jersey band has been churning out hard-charging, good-time thrash for just as long as their far more successful peers. Ironbound, the band's fifteenth album, holds up right alongside their earlier classics like The Years of Decay or Under the Influence. Ironbound's chunky, bangable riffs and gang vocals give it a timeless feel, and the record's lone flaw is the out-of-place T-Pain moment singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth has on the bridge of "Give a Little." Hopefully "Blitz" realizes that Auto-Tune is most certainly not metal and avoids trying to recreate that onstage. ARIS WALES
