Overkill — White Devil Armory

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ Long live Overkill Incorporated! Their latest product is just as ferocious as any before it. The songwriting on this album aims less for coherent songwriting and more for fun thrashy moments… and the trade-off works remarkably well. Also, of particular note to me: D.D. Verni’s bass tone is just as coppery as ever, but the way that the mix has dialed in his mids and low end is gonna be hard to improve upon. Taking away one star, of course, because there’s very little innovation here, but otherwise it’s a fantastically potent album, and an improvement over their last album The Electric Age (and possibly over Ironbound as well).
