Overkill (USA) // Information

Overkill is an American thrash metal band, formed in 1980 in New Jersey. They have gone through many line-up changes, leaving singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D. Verni as the only constant members. Along with Anthrax, whose one-time lead guitarist Dan Spitz was also an early member of Overkill,the band is one of the most successful East Coast thrash metal bands, and they are often called "the Motörhead of thrash metal".The band has a notable mascot named "Chaly", a skeletal bat with a skull-like face, horns, bony wings and green eyes. Chaly has appeared on most of their album covers.

To date, Overkill has released seventeen studio albums, one album of cover songs, three EPs and three live albums. They were one of the early thrash metal bands to sign to a major label (Atlantic Records in 1986), and rose to fame as part of the genre's movement of the late 1980s, along with bands such as Anthrax, Exodus, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Testament.
