Overkill is starting the new year with a new album.
the veteran thrash metal outfit announced this week that it will release its new album The Wings of War February 22 via Nuclear Blast Records. The 10-song record, when released, will be the New Jersey-based band’s 19th full-length studio recording.
Front man Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth said in a prepared statement that he is looking forward to the album’s release.
“It was a blast making The Wings of War!,” Ellsworth said. “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.”
Overkill teamed with famed producer Chris “ZEUSS” Harris to create record. Harris mixed and mastered the album, while the band self-produced the album. Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Soilwork) crafted the album’s artwork.
The album’s track listing is noted below.
