Overkill - _Coverkill_
(CMC, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Most bands choose their covers wisely -- not to say Blitz and the boys didn't, but it just seems like a fair amount of "tough" songs to handle, especially with Overkill's very straightforward style of speed/thrash metal. While this disc has some good songs (Kiss' "Deuce", Black Sabbath's "Cornucopia" and Jethro Tull's "Hymn 43") and some bad songs (Manowar's "Death Tone" and a mediocre Motorhead number, "Overkill"), the overall feel of the record seems bloated with the band trying to show another side to their music abilities, when we, Overkill fans, know all along just what type of music they were meant to play. I'm disappointed.
