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!

Good list. I might put Horrorscope above Ironbound, though. Years of Decay is the best by far. I'd say:

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..

2 Horrorscope Horrorscope Product Image

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).

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.

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 reaffirmed that Thrash is alive and well!

4 Taking Over Taking Over Product Image

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

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

Every song is killer

5 The Electric Age The Electric Age Product Image

Best of the new era! Classic thrash!

6 Feel the Fire Feel the Fire Product Image

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

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

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.

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!

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 From the Underground & Below From the Underground & Below Product Image
14 W.F.O. W.F.O. Product Image
15 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!

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

17 F**k You F**k You Product Image
18 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.

19 Relixiv Relixiv Product Image

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

21 Rotten to the Core Rotten to the Core Product Image
22 Bloodletting Bloodletting Product Image

Bert of the 2000's decade.
