Overkill - Ironbound (2010)
Fist-pumping old-school thrash metal which is well structured & performed but which is ultimately not very memorable. The songwriting is clearly missing the X factor that would make this a memorable release. There's nothing wrong with Ironbound. It's just that we've heard it all before and done much better (ie Horrorscope). The production & guitar solos are definite highlights. I'm not really sure what they were trying to achieve with the intro to "The Goal Is Your Soul" which is totally out of time with the track that fades in underneath it & makes me cringe every time.
