Overkill

A legendary East Coast thrash band, Overkill gained a large initial following from their well-received stage shows, and have carved a remarkable career for themselves, churning out blue-collar thrash albums for just short of 20 years now. Members have come and gone (the exceptions being vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D. Verni, who've been there from the beginning), but the basic style hasn't really changed much, and nor has their commitment to energetic live shows and quality thrash metal.
