Best Overkill Albums

The Top Ten

1 The Years of Decay The Years of Decay Product Image

This album defined the true meaning of thrash when it arrived. Bobby’s voice changed the landscape which was desperately needed at the time. Mixing Metallica riffs with Udo Dirkschneider vocals was a breath of fresh air. A great album!

I love the guitar tone on Horrorscope, but I feel The Years of Decay has better songs overall.

Jaysus, one of the best thrash staples and sits so low? Definitely better than ironbound..

All song rules except elimination. So that makes it a good album

2 Horrorscope Horrorscope Product Image

Horrorscope refines the best elements of The Years Of Decay. Great production, lots of variety, amazing song structures. Years is just a inch away from Horrorscope but ‘scope takes the prized pie.

Definitely Overkill’s best album. “Coma” is an amazing song, arguably their best of all-time (and “Blood Money” is criminally underrated; seriously, check it out if you haven’t already).

Tough to say if this or Ironbound should be #2. YoD, H, and I are the top three for sure.

Ironbound no1? What? This one or Years of Decay should be numero uno!

3 Ironbound Ironbound Product Image

Had to go with Years of Decay, but yeah, this was like the Megadeth Endgame. Or what Death Magnetic was supposed to be. All the good comeback albums: Tempo, Endgame, Thirteen, Ironbound, Electric Age, Phantom Antichrist, Worship Music.

Best modern day thrash album and Overkill's best overall. Modernmproducfion and every track is a winner. Great riffs.

This album is just as awesome as Endgame by Megadeth almost

This album reaffirmed that Thrash is alive and well!

4 The Electric Age The Electric Age Product Image

Best of the new era! Classic thrash!

5 Taking Over Taking Over Product Image

Ok personally I think years of decay is their best, but this needs to be higher than 6, it's my number 2

My partial list
1.YOD
2.TO
3.Horrorscope
4.FTF
5.Ironbound

Maybe its because this was the first overkill album I ever heard but I think this is their best.

Every song is killer

Awesome work! very good production!

6 Feel the Fire Feel the Fire Product Image

Way better than ironbound in my opinion. This along with horrorscope talking over and years of decay are overkills finest albums

Great album, extremely underrated. The production may not be the best but it still sounds amazing.

7 Under the Influence Under the Influence Product Image

I think this edges out Electric Age. I personally enjoy it more than Taking Over, but I think TO is probably a hair better. I also think WDA is better than Electric Age, but only by a but.

This is the quintessence of Overkill

My fave overkill album of all time

Killer album

8 White Devil Armory White Devil Armory Product Image

A pretty weird choice but I'll go with it. I think with White Devil Armory the band reached its absolute peak.

Good, but a little bland.

9 The Grinding Wheel The Grinding Wheel Product Image

No love for TGW? I think they entered new territory here but kept the heaviness. Mean Green Killing Machine is superb, Goddam Trouble is a goddam ace and Come Heavy is a masterpiece. Great album all around!

10 The Wings of War The Wings of War Product Image

One of the best albums of 2019!

The Contenders

11 Killbox 13 Killbox 13 Product Image

Best one of their groove era. Just listen an opening track or sound of dying.
Those two songs have mind blowing breaks! Upeee!

All of the songs are f#'cking epic! the good thing that they returned back to thrash metal witch is their first album that include thrashy in the 2000s. sound of dying, no lights, devil by the tail, are one of my favourites.

12 I Hear Black I Hear Black Product Image

You know, this was actually good. They are the only band that can blend thrash and groove so amazingly.

13 W.F.O. W.F.O. Product Image
14 Necroshine Necroshine Product Image

I don't know why but I really enjoy this album. Very underrated. Best Groove album bu them. Every song is killer. The only thing that bothers me is the "ohohoo" part in My December. Own this on MC. The riffs are very hard hitting. The bass is just amazing! Bobby gives a lot of effort and sometimes he sings very differently. The drums are kickass too!

15 From the Underground & Below From the Underground & Below Product Image
16 Immortalis Immortalis Product Image

This is killer, the production is superb and the guitar tones really cut deep,people always go on about their early stuff, this should be up in the top five in my opinion

This album was a great metal album! It is so heavy and the third song is the best! SKULL AND BOOONNESS

17 The Killing Kind The Killing Kind Product Image

This is probably my favorite Overkill album. It is the Overkill album that I go back and listen to the most. From "Certifiable" to "Let Me Shut That For You" and the masterpiece "Cold Hard Fact," The Killing Kind offers some of Overkill's best work.

18 Relixiv Relixiv Product Image

This album is heavy! The guitar tone is the best yet!

19 F**k You F**k You Product Image
20 Coverkill Coverkill Product Image
21 Rotten to the Core Rotten to the Core Product Image
