Overkill: White Devil Armory

Overkill showed they are still a crushing force releasing one of the best thrash metal albums in years with 2010's Ironbound, an album that blew the doors off so many other metal releases. Since then Overkill haven't gone wrong following with The Electric Age and now we can sit back and enjoy another electrifying thrash album White Devil Armory.

The thrash legends haven't changed their supercharged style coupled with the unique voice of frontman Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth's with those snarling vocals, but why would they do anything different when it works so well, and there is still a strong demand for scorching Overkill style thrash metal.

Overkill aren't resting on past achievements as there's nothing stale or uninspired about the songs of White Devil Armory. The album is a mixture of spirited speed shifting trailblazers such as "The Amorist" and "Where There's Smoke" and pounding mid paced metal numbers like "Bitter Pill" all performed with the precision we've come to expect. If anything White Devil Armory is a more diverse kind of release from the veterans than The Electric Age, and White Devil Armory also comes with an ample stockpile of hooks.

So now there is three killer albums in a row from one of the first and best U.S. thrash metal groups Overkill, and that's without so many other great recordings in their back catalogue. White Devil Armory Overkill's seventeenth album could very well be the premier thrash release of 2014.
