Overkill Premieres New Song & Lyric Video "Our Finest Hour" From Upcoming New Album "The Grinding Wheel"

Overkill premieres a new song and lyric video entitled "Our Finest Hour", taken from the upcoming new album "The Grinding Wheel", which will be out in stores February 17th via Nuclear Blast.

Check out now "Our Finest Hour" below.

Comments frontman Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth :

"Looks like the ‘machine’ is up and rolling, but for all good things we wait. The delay for ‘The Grinding Wheel‘ will take us to 2/17, at the start of the US tour… but fear not, the Euro tour will happen and happen with some new music! Friday Nov. 4th, we will let go of the first cut; ‘Our Finest Hour‘, available on various colors of vinyl along with some ear shattering madness. We will also have it with us on the road to quench your thirst and fill the hunger. So you heard it here first and you can hear more live the first time on tour! To the road, onward and upward into ’17!"

Some people complain when a band doesn't progress enough from album to album, and some complain when a band changes direction.
One of the greatest things about Overkill is their consistency. Even through I hear Black and Necroshine, the core Overkill sound was still front and center. Even through many guitarist and drummer changes, the musical direction remained tightly focused.
Though the years have brought a refining and polishing of the sound, you instantly recognize an Overkill song.
In many respects, they are the shark of thrash metal.

The Grinding Wheel will be another great album, I have no doubt. \m/
