5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Kill is back! March 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Overkill can best be summed up in one word: Consistancy. You can always count on them to produce an album which stays (for the most part) true to their roots while experimenting with new styles here and there. There have been a couple stumbles along the way (such as "I Hear Black," which upon further reflection really IS a good album...but it could have been so much better had it not sounded like it was produced in somebody's bathroom) but for the most part, the metal machine that is Overkill has rumbled along at full throttle for the past 18+ years and shows no signs of stopping.
Killbox 13, semi-aptly named (it's their 13th all-studio release, provided you count their all-cover-tune release "Coverkill"), can be considered a snapshot of their entire career, with the ten songs each sounding like a blend of styles from all of their albums. "Struck Down," for example, sounds much like it could have easily been present on their first full-length release "Feel The Fire," while "I Rise" could have been part of the "Taking Over" era...and "Until I Die" reminds me somewhat of "Burn You Down/To Ashes" from "The Killing Kind." "Crystal Clear" is my current favorite track, a cut that sounds somewhat like a blend of "Skullkrusher" (from "The Years Of Decay") and "Spiritual Void" (from the aforementioned "I Hear Black"), while "The Sound Of Dying" smokes along somewhat like "F.U.C.T." ("From The Underground And Below")...except a little slower, a good deal heavier, and even catchier.
Production is as monstrously heavy as it's been on the past few albums, with all instruments clearly voiced. Tim's drumming is as tight and punchy as ever. D.D. Verni's unmistakable driving bass sound is prevalent on all the tracks, laying down a furious foundation for the well-oiled machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evil NEVER dies March 26, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Overkill cannot be killed..yet another great ablum from the Thrashing jersey boys.They wont sell out and will be playing till there 90.Easiest way to sum the album is song by song.In no particular order.
1.Devil By The Tail--Very catchy MELODIC(yes melody) beginning riff...good chorus..and even better break down in the middle section...sounds a lot like the break in New Machine.Great song.
2.Damned--Good groovin song ..compares much to Save Me..sounds very much like it was recorded From the Underground and below sessions.
3.The One--Very steady paced song with interesting mobster sounding story.Also good chorus as well.
4.As I Die--Good melodic beginning with many guitar harmonies...a bit strange and new for over kill...but none the less heavy...and terrific dynamics and break in the middle section.
5.Struck Down--PURE overkill oldschool..thrashy..double bass driven...EXCELLENT middle section..with backing vocals from the rest of the band.And some kick[ing] solo's!
6.I rise--Starts out slow..then kicks in with a COMA'ISH thrash attack thats relentless through the whole song..fast AND furious..great break also.And the backing HOLLARS r also back in this oldschool classic.
7.Crystal Clear--Or SKULLCRUSHER part2 i say..VERY heavy guitars tuned nearly as low as the bass..GREAT groove.and also very heavy middle section break.
8.No Lights--No lights indeed...very dark..creepy and VERY odd for overkill.He SINGS..and very IN KEY..as opposed to the older days of trying to carry a good tune and being slighty off.A+ song.
9.Sound of Dying--If u liked Cold Hard Fact from the killing kind you'll love this one.Straight ahead..and very killer.
10.Unholy--Yes very...Good opening section..again blasting into a thrash attack for ear piercing..

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on all counts, however... April 8, 2003
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
Granted Blitz and the boys aren't going to keep writing and releasing Horrorscope every single album just for me, but I come to every Overkill album with that expectation.
This is a good album, but it's not a great album. It's perfectly solid, well thought out, well put together recognizable Overkill, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately what that give us is more of the same. When the songs all sound similar enough that I can't keep the titles straight easily, I know that it hasn't grabbed me in the way that the earlier efforts have.
Still my praise and devotion at the temple of Overkill is not misplaced, if only that they keep doing it. They haven't let me down yet. Now that I've reached an age where many of my metal heroes are dying off or fading out, it is refreshing that Overkill keeps grinding away.
The album is worth the money. Just go get it and give it a shot.
Tom

5.0 out of 5 stars OVERKILLIN' THRASH...AND DOIN' IT GREAT! September 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Man, this frickin' band just gets better with age. In a world where all these pussies call groups Marilyn Manson, Good Charlotte, and Limp Bisquick metal, so many hairless men should be ashamed of being called a man! Overkill, after 20 years of head pounding thrash deliver the goods on this their 13th release. And guess what, it's another serving of head-pounding thrash! But man, just when I almost gave up on 'em after WFO, these guys are full throttle again ever since Necroshine, and that was long ago. Since then, they've given Coverkill, Bloodletting, Live, and then this, truly a masterpiece. So if you guys want one of the best metal releases of the year, look for 13, and kill that box!
