Overkill, una din trupele etalon ale thrash-ului, formata la inceputul anilor ’80 in New Jersey, a lansat astazi, 22 februarie 2019, sub egida Nuclear Blast, cel de-al 19-lea album de studio, intitulat “The Wings Of War”.
Inregistrat in Gear Recording Studio din New Jersey, la butoane fiind chiar D.D. Verni si Dave Linsk, materialul contine 10 piese iar noul videoclip de promovare este “Welcome To The Garden State” si poate fi urmarit mai jos.
“The Wings Of War” marcheaza debutul bateristului Jason Bittner, care s-a alaturat americanilor anul trecut, iar artwork-ul poarta semnatura lui Travis Smith (Opeth, Death, Devin Townsend, Katatonia, Nevermore, Anathema, CKY, Soilwork, King Diamond, Novembre, Avenged Sevenfold, Strapping Young Lad, Persefone).
Vocea trupei, inconfundabilul Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth, a declarat: “It was a blast making “The Wings Of War”! It is something old feeling new again, as our chemistry was altered by the addition of Jason Bittner. I was curious from the get-go, how would it pan out? I think what we accomplished here is a new, upgraded Overkill that embraced the new chemistry, while taking our roots into the present. The new formula produced not only more raw power, but more places to go with melody, a win, win. The key is being not only interested in the change, but part of it. I’ll tell you what, it’s still fun as hell making Overkill records”.
