Best Overkill Albums


The Top Ten

1 The Years of Decay

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

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

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

A flawless album
And playing with spiders is one hell of a song

2 Horrorscope

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

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

3 Ironbound

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.

This album is just as awesome as Endgame by Megadeth almost

This album reaffirmed that Thrash is alive and well!

4 Taking Over

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!

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

5 Feel the Fire

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

6 The Electric Age

Best of the new era! Classic thrash!

7 Under the Influence

My fave overkill album of all time

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.

Killer album

8 The Grinding Wheel

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!

9 White Devil Armory

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.

10 Killbox 13

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.

The Contenders

11 W.F.O.
12 I Hear Black

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

13 Necroshine
14 From the Underground & Below
15 F**k You
16 Relixiv

This album is heavy! The guitar tone is the best yet! - AidDem3

17 Immortalis

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

18 The Killing Kind
19 Bloodletting

Bert of the 2000's decade.

20 Coverkill
21 Rotten to the Core
