The driving force behind keeping a band going for thirty years is commendable, let alone when Ironbound is both album fifteen and arguably the most solid album the band has put to their name.

That's right, Overkill make their return with a whole new sense of conviction and power. Ironbound oozes with a thrash pedigree and confidently outclasses much of the genre's other contributors, both new and old. You can not take Overkill for granted with this release, as the band finally appear to have a burning fire underneath them with the result being an album to genuinely get excited about.

2010 was a magical year to Overkill as they launched one of the greatest albums of their legendary career. After years of underground industrial metal albums of variable quality, the band set a standard for what thrash metal should be nowadays.

Ironbound is an amazing piece of heavy, thrash metal, bringing something new to the industry at the time where there aren't very many good albums released, even by great bands of this style. With this sick album the band brought up the best of themselves with amazing performances by every single one of the musicians. Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth gives a top class performance shifting from high pitched singing to a lower range with a great and unique voice. Even though I personally never considered him a particularly outstanding singer, I have to admit that with the performance on this album he deserves to be among the best thrash metal vocalists of the past 20 years. Both guitar players perform insane riffs and solos and both D.D. Verni and Ron Lipnicki give the album the consistency, power and intensity needed to light up Overkill's career and give them a place among the names on the metal walk of fame.

I think for the most part Overkill get the appropriate amount of credit for what they've done in their career.

And they're one of my favorite thrash bands.

First listen 9, second listen 8, third listen 7, now fourth listen 4.
Their first 6 albums are good, that's all.

Rating: 8 So if you listen to it say 10 more times, it will get a negative score?

I thought it was very good personally but that's just me. I still listen to it regularly though it doesn't blow my mind like Years of Decay or Horrorscope.

Rating: 8 The dude has to be the funniest troll I've seen in a while.

I always saw Ironbound as a pillar stone for modern Thrash that laid the recipe for Overkill to release safe but Consistent albums. I still put this at a top5 best of Overkill and a top10 of best Thrash Albums of the decade so far. Its not impressive compared to the early band classics or even any Classic Thrash-Era album, but looking at Overkill's relentless carreer, it has to draw some sort of admiration to release something this good at this stage of the game.

It's your own point of view. Anyone holds different opinion from you is considered a troll ?
You're very J.o.o.l ! Chracter almost 99% alike, twins ?
I have been listening to year of decay for almost 30 years...still that good.

I dont consider a troll someone that has a different opinion, but I cant really tell if you're trolling or being serious on more than half the posts you're making.

You're clearly a typical self-made god, you can deny what you've done, who cares anyway...
How would you know I was not serious ?
You're a human lie-tester, psychologist or considering yourself a god ?
I'm seriously telling you I used to like it but not now, I don't think my preference would bother anybody.

Impressive that you've been listening to it for so long since it is only almost 25 years old
And that for quite an average album which comes nowhere near the quality of Feel the Fire and Taking Over which I both have been listening to ever since they were released.

I mentioned "almost" 30 years. I didn't know that accuracy is so important to the human race.

Five years off is not 'almost'. Especially not when it constitutes 20% of 25 years.

Try flying Amsterdam from Singapore and being off course by 20%. So, yes, accuracy is extremely important for and also to the human race.

Says the guy who personally attacks everyone that disagrees with him or insults people simply because he doesn't like their lists. You might want to look back through your own comments and reflect on why people treat you the way they do.

I guess this is not Facebook where "Like" is the only option.
I must confess I am no Mr. Nice Guy but I don't think my negative expression to some lists should be regarded as "attacks & insults".
After all I don't think I'm so inflential, so take it easy.

By the same token don't expect people to keep quiet when you make outlandish comments about established genres and the like. Reacting to that with personal comments doesn't paint you in a favourable light.

I don't think my comments are outlandish at all...music itself is perceptive, it's not easy to define especially when an artist try to project it in a slightly different way.

Genre itself is only a general guide, not a doctrine for you to follow 100% exactly. You basically is a purist and follwer, that's why we have disagreements all the time. Don't think everything will always remains the same ! The sky has not fallen doest mean that it will not fall down forever.

With all due respect, I don't think anyone cares about your score, or mine, or whoever. Its there to display how we personally feel about the Album. If you feel its a 4, then don't change it, even less, let other opinions make you change it. You are entitled to your own opinion and dont let anyone take it away from your.

However, bear in mind that the Board is here to promote discussions and that comments will always have some sort of backlash, specially if you generate some harsh arguments, people will reply and some may not be that pleasant.

I'm not saying it is, you can think what you like about genres, but it doesn't give you the right to belittle the people that don't agree with you. If you can't discuss without being condescending then don't be surprised when people react to you negatively.

I love how it denigrates to name calling when people don't agree.

I couldn't careless what Godbuster thinks about genres but I wouldn't call him an idiot for having a difference of opinion.


Especially when some of the people posting don't even care about the band in question. After all I got slammed for stating my opinion on bands I didn't have an interest in.

I totally agree but a lot of people aren't open to discussion at all. It's case of "my way or high way".

I see the backlash all the time from some specific posters.


Personally I love a good debate/discussion.

I have never seen to sentences contradict each other as much as those did.
