With the bands Historikill Box Set, just about to be released via Nuclear Blast this Friday October 16th, there is no better time to check in with our favorite New Jersey thrashers and find out some background on the creating of this unique box of thrash gold and why they decided to do a Johnny Cash cover!
‘HistoriKill: 1995 – 2007’ which will be released this Friday, October 16th. It will include eleven Overkill albums on 13 CDs plus an extra bonus CD (incl. demos, remixes and an unreleased cover song) all in digi sleeves. Last month Overdrive manged to get a little down time with Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth to talk about the bands history, as well as the mountain of cool stuff that is on the Historikill Box Set.

With a series of UK and Ireland dates announced for next year, Overkill are ready to take to the stage again to prove just why they are one of the most respected bands of all time, not only in the trash metal genre, but in heavy metal as a whole.
Enigmatic frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth had to say on the announcement of the European tour: “We are happy to announce we are coming back to the UK & Ireland, to thrash it up with our cousins across the pond! Yes, yes, yes boys and girls from New Jersey to England, Ireland & Scotland the “Wrecking Crew” comes your way next April, kicking off in Birmingham on the 5th. So let’s mark the dates and remember, I’m easily disappointed! HA! Over the wall boys and give ’em the cold steel!!!”
