New Overkill album 'The Grinding Wheel' out today
Nuclear Blast Records

Sometimes the music realm can seem a little desolate to metalheads. In a world so dominated by pop music, rock and metal lovers have long felt like the underdogs of the music world. Today, however, is the kind of day that makes metal-heads rejoice. Prominent thrashers Overkill served up a whole new set of hard rocking goods with the release of their eighteenth studio album The Grinding Wheel. 

With more than three and a half decades as a band now under their collective belt, New Jersey thrashers Overkill time and again have given the metal world exactly what it's needed. Since their formation in 1980 and until today, Overkill comes out of the corner swinging and delivers a precise, cutting, and punk-edged-thrash signature sound and vibe that's influenced the history and longevity of thrash metal. That impact and mastery continues on with the ten relentless tunes on the release of The Grinding Wheel - produced by the band themselves and mixed by Andy Sneap of Megadeth, Accept and Exodus fame, despite the fact that we're only weeks into 2017, The Grinding Wheel is easily going to be one of the top metal releases representing the entire year. 

Official track listing for The Grinding Wheel is as follows:
1. Mean Green Killing Machine
2. Goddamn Trouble
3. Our Finest Hour
4. Shine On
5. The Long Road
6. Let's All Go To Hades
7. Come Heavy
8. Red White And Blue
9. The Wheel
10. The Grinding Wheel

As if new Overkill music isn't exhilarating enough, the band's first tour of the year will kick off next week as well. The North American trek will begin on Feb. 14 in Philadelphia, and hit cities like Anaheim, Chicago, Washington DC and many more before wrapping things up on Mar. 11 in Sayreville, N.J. Technical death metal masters Nile will come along in support of their newest release, What Should Not Be Unearthed, and joining Overkill and Nile for select shows will be melancholic progressive metallers Amorphis and the melodic doom/death metal unit Swallow The Sun
