All Music Guide - Vincent Jeffries
This full-length debut from New York thrash band Overkill made quite a splash within the heavy metal community and listenership. While certainly not the group's best effort, Feel the Fire possessed all the blistering riffs and complete abandonment fans would learn to expect from Overkill.

Verni sounds surprisingly accomplished on this major-label debut, giving tight performances and ultimately helping (along with fellow second-wave thrash bands like Flotsam and Jetsam and a myriad of Bay-Area metal outfits) define a generation of spastic, but impressive second wave of aggressive thrash metal.

    Old School NYC Thrash

    What can I say, this album is a classic. Certainly this is the bands best effort. Bare bones metal. I remember seeing these guys many times at L'Amour in Brooklyn back in the late 80's. I was surprised they were still together. If you are looking for a great thrash album, you will not be dissappointed in this one.
