This concert was awesome! At around $35 a ticket, we got to see three bands perform over four hours. Hydraform opened well, Exhorder carried the middle and Overkill topped off the concert, and their tour, with the best show I’ve ever seen. The venue was pretty great..The House Of Blues wasn’t as crowded as i have seen it before..but I was fine with that.
Overkill came out and gave a lesson in how thrash should be done. This band is firing on all cylinders. This the best lineup the band has ever had. The setlist is amazing covering all phases with some cool songs they have not done in a long time. Do yourself a favor and show some respect to the old school you will not be disappointed.
The madness started with “Last Man Standing” and the rest is a metal blurr!!!…but when they hit “Elimination” is when the crowd got into a frenzy…’Something is going around, crying at the epidemic, pullin’ on nails, six feet underground… Elimination, elimination, elimination, elimination, eliminate the right, eliminate the wrong, eliminate the weak, eliminate the strong, eliminate your feelings, eliminate too late, eliminate your hopes, ELIMINATE, ELIMINATE’… SO EPIC! Ending the regular set with “Ironbound” Ever had a Metal-god orgasmic LSD experience amongst the Titans of Asgard while headbanging in snow? I do, every time I listen to Ironbound. Overkill is right up there among the greatest metal bands in history, and that is not going to change anytime soon. The first of 5 oncore songs was “Coma” …Simple an amazing thrash metal song, nothing more needs to be said!! The night ended on a high not with the boys playing Fuck You (Reprise)
High intensity, over the top!! Left me in awe and my ears ringing!! Bobby and DD are by far the undisputed Kings of thrash!!! I got to meet them before the show and they were super cool! Definitely will be seeing them again, over and over!!!
