OverKill was one of the first thrash bands, combining punk with traditional metal before the term was even coined. Formed in 1980 in New Jersey, the band has released 16 studio albums and kept up a rigorous touring schedule over the past 30 years. OverKill’s mascot, Chaly, is a winged skull who has appeared on most of their album covers. Along with Chaly, vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D. Verni are the sole remaining founding members. Through many lineup changes OverKill has stayed true to their original sound, bucking all trends without relenting and without compromise. This Barking Chicken Production is a trip down memory lane, or a flashback to the gutter as the case may be.

Don't do it for the money
Do it for the thrill
True to life is what you get
We're livin' for the 'Kill!
