Coverkill

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Coverkill arrives only several months after its predecessor Necroshine, consisting -- as the title suggests -- entirely of cover tunes rather than any newly written material. Some of the choices are predictable, but to their credit, Overkill picks some of the more underrated items from major metal artists like Black Sabbath "Hole in the Sky," "Cornucopia," "Never Say Die", Deep Purple "Space Truckin'", Kiss "Deuce", Judas Priest "Tyrant", Manowar "Death Tone", Jethro Tull "Hymn 43", plus the Motorhead tune that gave Overkill their name.

Coverkill arrives only several months after its predecessor Necroshine, consisting -- as the title suggests -- entirely of cover tunes rather than any newly written material. Some of the choices are predictable, but to their credit, Overkill picks some of the more underrated items from major metal artists like Black Sabbath "Hole in the Sky," "Cornucopia," "Never Say Die", Deep Purple "Space Truckin'", Kiss "Deuce", Judas Priest "Tyrant", Manowar "Death Tone", Jethro Tull "Hymn 43", plus the Motorhead tune that gave Overkill their name. These parts of the album actually work pretty well since Overkill is a tight, professional metal band, and they've chosen high-quality material. More problematic are the punk covers by first-generation bands like the Dead Boys "Ain't Nothin' to Do", the Sex Pistols "No Feelings", and the Ramones "I'm Against It". Most thrash/speed metal bands who have done punk covers in the past only point up the fact that metal's often rigorous technical requirements and studied theatricality don't sit well with punk's simplicity and raw expressiveness. And unfortunately, that tends to be the case here as well. But those are only three songs, leaving the rest of the record a fine showcase for Overkill's well-developed musicianship.
