like usual the thrash pioneer's/legends get no notoriety yet again. If you've never heard the band OVERKILL I suggest you take a listen. Every album has the best crunchy ass chuggin riffs, they are the stomp riff masters and get absolutely no credit for the music they helped originate, yes folks they were inventing the thrash sound in jersey/new york the same time SUCKTALLICA was in california!

Mind blowing live act from Australia. The front man "Doc Neeson" is second to none. This band deserves to be on the list
