Okay, so in the mid-’80s, when SST was still releasing hardcore records, they put out a four-song EP by a band called Overkill, and I’ve never known if this was the same band. What I do know is that EP smokes a pack of Camels and this album sounds like a Guitar Center employee’s attempt to ride the lightning. In all honesty, I’ve heard worse, and if you’ve ever picked through metal section of the cutout bin, you have too. And really, the only reason I pulled this out of the stacks was in the hopes that somebody would send me a copy of that SST record.
