Editorial Reviews

2007 album from the long-running Metal band. Another year, another new Overkill album - delivered exactly how you'd expect Overkill to deliver it. The band will never re-invent their chosen genre, but there's nothing wrong with being consistent. And they most certainly know how to ROCK! Bodog Music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overkill doing what they do best October 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
All you need to know about Immortalis is: 1) It's a brand new Overkill cd, 2) Skull and Bones, featuring Randly Blythe of Lamb of God on guest vox (wicked song!) 3) Production much better than Relix 14, 4) Lots of stop-and-go headbanging riffs to fill any metal head's Overkill fix, and finally 5) It will grab you instantly from the first spin and you will definitely be hitting repeat to listen to it front to end all over again right after the first listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet... November 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
When I first received this album and listened to it I thought it was so-so at best but after a few listens it became in my opinion the best release that Overkill has put out to date.

Though I love every album Overkill has ever released and with "WFO" being my personal all time favorite, this album goes above and beyond all of them. From the opening track "Devils in the Mist" to the final cut "Overkill V...The Brand", this album is a must have for any fan of Thrash Metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAY Better than ReliXIV October 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album sees the return of the Zalula's to the Overkill production team. They really helped Overkill get back to their old 1990's thrash form on this one. And everyone pulled it off it without sounding dated. The sound is totally up-to-date. Both the music and the songwriting are great. Blitz and DD sound as good, if not better than ever. As with all Overkill albums, it is a must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a whole lot better than Relivx, heres why. October 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Overkill have been one of my favorite bands for many years with Horrorscope and WFO being my favorite albums to date. After these they kept cranking out pretty good quality thrash with a few exceptions, well this is another one of those exceptions. Overkill have went through many guitar players through the years, my favorites have always been Rob Cannivino and Merrit Gant, S Marino and Joe Cameau were also very good but took the band in a less thrash more slowed down sabbath type metal, which some people liked and some didnt. I myself prefer there earlier work. So now with Immortalis which isnt one of the best names i've heard for a record they do more of the same that they have the last few albums. The main problem "AGAIN" is with guitarist Dave Lynsk who i consider to be about one of the worst guitar players in metal right now. He has almost no style, his riffs are as bland as cake with no icing and he always puts his guitar sound so out front that it takes away from the rest of the band. Killbox 13 is definately the best work with him, but his solos were still just ludicrous on that album. The other reason Immortalis just doesnt work is because since about 1997 or so Bobby Blitz has went with this new blues tinged type vocal delivery that is just getting old quick, list to Devils in the Mist, Necroshine, Thunderhead, just to name a few and you'll see that they all have the same exact vibe. So you may say with all the slagging why? do i give it 3 stars, well its hard to totally dog Overkill because they do tend to stick out and stay to there roots when it comes to metal, it just seems that with like 17 albums under there belt that the ability for them to write good quality songs has just went out the window. Get rid of LYNSK and blitz growl evil, don't sing like Stevie Ray Blitz. Some pluses are

Devils in the Mist
Skull and Bone
Overkill V
3 good songs 3 stars. Sorry boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Consistent from beginning to end August 11, 2013
By Wuchak
Format:Audio CD
...that's how I would best describe Overkill's 14th studio album IMMORTALIS, which was released in 2007. This might be my favorite album of theirs, as far as consistency goes. I say "might" because I've only owned 8 of their studio recordings out of their total of 16 (as of 2013). This includes their last two, IRONBOUND and ELECTRIC AGE, which are both good. Of course, I've heard tracks from the other 8 albums as well (some of my friends have owned them, etc.).

I listened to IMMORTALIS the other day while working out and it dawned on me that I liked the album from beginning to end, which never happened to me before with an Overkill disk. Of course, I have favorite songs and those are:

"Skull and Bones", which includes additional vocals by the singer of Lamb of God.

"Hellish Pride", which cops a nice groove, has an interesting mellow bridge and a catchy chorus.

"Head On", which features a great acoustic opening (kinda reminiscent of the eerie mid-section of "Rime of the Ancient Mariner") and Bobby Blitz getting really creative with the vocals.

"Overkill V... The Brand", which is easily the most inventive song here. It starts as an eerie mood piece put picks up by the minute mark, gets more eerie, and then goes into overkill, pun intended. It ends the same way it starts.

BOTTOM LINE: Although I prefer similar bands like Metallica, Death Angel, Bathory, Meliah Rage, Death, Kreator, Helstar and Forbidden, I favor Overkill to Megadeth, Anthrax, Destruction and Exodus. So I was never an uber-fan, but I never disliked them either. In any event, IMMORTALIS qualifies as one of their top works, mainly because it's enjoyable from beginning to end.

GRADE: B+

overkill/immortalis
I agree. I was really disappointed with RelixIV, so this was quite a pleasant surprise. The only track I really didn't care for was Hellish Pride. But other than that, a killer record.
