Overkill — The Grinding Wheel

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ This is bouncy and fun, as any self-respecting Overkill album should be. At the same time, there’s something going on here, a slight tweak to the otherwise dependable formula that’s not entirely successful.  I hope I’m very wrong about this, or reading into it too much, but the band’s sound borders on weird “Load+Reload”/”Countdown To Extinction”/”The Ritual” territory. Ew.
