Overkill is synonymous with power, precision and perseverance. Across multiple decades, the pioneering powerhouse has shaped, refined and steadily broadened a determined style of blue collar power metal, soaring melodic hard rock and genre-defining thrash built from steadfast, muscular pulls at their own proverbial bootstraps. It all started with their 1985 full-length debut on Megaforce, Feel the Fire. Featuring the original band lineup of Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth on vocals, Bobby Gustafson on guitar, D.D. Verni on bass and Rat Skates on drums, classics like "Feel the Fire" and "Rotten to the Core," helped define the second wave of aggressive thrash metal.
