More Info:

Nobody opens their favorite beer and wonders what it will taste like. Experimentation, stylistic departures, overtures toward the mainstream? That's somebody else's game. In a time before MTV's abysmal Jersey Shore or HBO's magnificent The Sopranos, New Jersey blessed the world with Overkill. A heavy metal institution established at the forefront of the burgeoning American thrash movement, with one boot in the gutter and one fist railing against the polish of lesser pretenders.

Reviews:

This year s White Devil Armory is as vital, powerful, aggressive and melodic as any of the albums in Overkill s ridiculously impressive back catalog, which stretches over 16 slabs of genre defining and redefining molten metal. The crunch is unmistakable. The voice is irreplaceable. Get less than a minute into White Devil Armory and it s clear it s Overkill. No pretense, no musical red herrings. This is tried and true, always trusted thrash metal. 

New Overkill bangers like thrastastic album opener, Armorist, the punkish Pig and the signature-sound powered Bitter Pill pack as hard a punch as ever. White Devil Armory is focused, destructive and catchy as hell, demonstrating the full capacity of a group whose creative work ethic is evident as the new songs blast from the speakers. White Devil Armory continues the blue-collar band s modern tradition of self-production, with mixing by The Electric Age s Greg Reely; whose work includes Fear Factory, and Devin Townsend. 

Nearly as ubiquitous at a metal show as Eddie, Snaggletooth or Vic Rattlehead, the batwinged-skull known simply as Chaly has adorned the backs of many denim vests around the world. And chances are, anybody with Overkill s mascot on their jacket will proudly display the logos of the Big 4 on their person, as well. 

White Devil Armory represents a sonic high watermark and a stylistic crown resting atop the Overkill s surging modern chapter, which sees the band continuing to tour for a worldwide crowd as they have for over 30 years alongside bands like Slayer, Motorhead and Megadeth.
