Staff review by

This is a year when old masters show us how it's done. First, in the death metal enclave, Asphyx showed us how real death metal is supposed to sound, and now it's time for the somehow stale thrash pond full of seemingly fresh fish who stink of plagiarism to be shown the real thrash deal. Overkill, who already swept the thrash scene clean 2 years ago with Ironbound, are back with The Electric Age.

Old Wounds, New Scars is my personal standout off the album, ripping guitars in the chorus sound like a devil's chainsaw needing a bit more gas! First Overkill album i've bought and judging from the consistent songwriting on the album, the first of many!

And you do very well, suport the talented bands, not the fake ones!

  Overkill still bringing it hard in 2012. This album is quite good, and even thought I am probably guilty of some Ponderering every now and then, to me Overkill is an example of a band who is at least as good if not better on their recent albums than they used to be back in the 80's.

  Excellent album, the one complaint I have is the lyrics, which normally don't bother me. Some of these lyrics are painfully bad, it seems like they just threw words out that rhymed.

Rating: 8 I liked their previous album "Ironbound". I never would had thought " The Electric Age" was going to be way better.

  It can't be rated a bad album, but there were only two or three songs on this album I'd I love to hear them several times more.

Rating: 9 Pretty good but Ironbound is better.
