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.

The track listing for The Wings Of War
1. Last Man Standing
2. Believe In The Fight
3. Head Of A Pin
4. Bat Shit Crazy
5. Distortion
6. A Mother’s Prayer
7. Welcome To The Garden State
8. Where Few Dare To Walk
9. Out On The Road-Kill

Grave Pleasures Posts “Infatuation Overkill” Video

Finnish apocalyptic post-punk quintet Grave Pleasures is ready to unveil the first new offering of music from upcoming sophomore release, “Motherblood.” Check out a music video for debut single, “Infatuation Overkill,” in the player below.

“This song draws first blood, where desire reaches fever pitch,” divulges vocalist Mat McNerney, “‘Infatuation Overkill’ is a picture of the current zeitgeist in free-fall. Our voyeurism, our all consuming ego, our absolute fixation with our own image and our descent into a commonly accepted form of mass schizophrenia. Obsession and omnipresent violent lust have become the norm as mania begins to seep into our intrinsic make-up. We attempt to portray the feeling of being pulled apart as the volcano erupts on our species and the dawn of man begins to draw to a close.”

Scheduled for release on September 29 via Century Media Records, “Motherblood” features ten hook-laden tracks as well as guest vocals from David Tibet of Current 93. “Motherblood” was recorded at Orgone Studios in the U.K. with Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Ulver, Paradise Lost) which was situated on the site of an old WW2 coding bunker.

1. Infatuation Overkill
2. Doomsday Rainbows
3. Be My Hiroshima
4. Joy Through Death
5. Mind Intruder
6. Laughing Abyss
7. Falling For An Atom Bomb
8. Atomic Christ
9. Deadenders
10. Haunted Afterlife
