Overkill Posts New Music Video “Welcome To The Garden State” Online

Legendary New Jersey thrashers Overkill are proud to unleash their 19th studio record, ‘The Wings Of War’, today via Nuclear Blast. In celebration of the momentous event, the band offer fans a music video for “Welcome to the Garden State.” Check out the infectious song and video that pays homage to Jersey below.

Bobby Blitz comments, “Not before in our video history have we presented something so artistically-seedy. This due to the brilliant yet twisted, vision of the editing room genius, behind the camera magic and damn tenacity of Mr. Tommy Jones; a good standing card carrying Jersey Boy, who did the band and the state proud. We had verbalized the story line to Tommy, who fully got it and we all created something to be proud of. So when you visit the Garden State, see or hear something that is different for you and you think; ‘hmmmm that’s not the way we do it at home.’ Remember this, you’re not at home anymore… are you?”

Overkill Reveals New Album “The Wings Of War” Details

Legendary New Jersey thrashers Overkill will unleash their 19th studio record, The Wings Of War, on February 22, 2019 via Nuclear Blast .

Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “It was a blast making The Wings of War! 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.”

The Wings Of War was recorded at Gear Recording Studio in New Jersey, SKH Studio in Florida and Jrod Productions with engineering handled by DD and Dave. The album was produced by the band while Chris “Zeuss” Harris.handled the mixing and mastering. Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Soilwork, Death…) was again enlisted to create the artwork for the album.

Gyre Posts “Second Circle” EP Teaser

Garden State progressive metal act Gyre has posted a teaser video for its forthcoming EP “Second Circle.” Check it out below. “Second Circle” will release digitally on July 23rd via Monolithic Records. If you like what you hear, be sure to check back next Monday as we’ll be premiering a track from the release.

“Gyre is proud to announce the release of its second EP through Monolithic Records,” said the band in a statement. “We understand that no band is an island. In this understanding Gyre is excited to team up with Tom Quigley, Jesse Zuretti and Monolithic to further our musical endeavor.

“Listeners can expect progressive metal that does not lose sight of the power of structure and song, and an understanding that it is the connection between our emotions that really get messages across to audiences. As Nietzsche said, ‘In music the passions enjoy themselves.’ Come enjoy our passion with us.”

Added Monolithic founder Tom Quigley, “Gyre play a unique style of proggy groove metal with great aplomb, blending the technical aggression of a younger, scrappier Gojira with the mature melodic flourishes of Leprous or Extol. They are a natural fit for the small, tight-knit family we have at Monolithic Records.”
