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..

Great from 00:00 to 57:11 m/

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

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

What an absolute masterpiece title cut is legendary why is this man so so so underrated

4 Taking Over

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

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
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.

8 The Grinding Wheel
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 I Hear Black

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

The Contenders

11 W.F.O.
12 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.

13 Necroshine
14 From the Underground & Below
15 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

16 F**k You
17 The Killing Kind
18 Bloodletting
19 Relixiv

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