Witness Overkill's 18th album of blistering yet precise and thought-provoking thrash magic, 'The Grinding Wheel,' a record on which thrash's ultimate team of five machined parts shows up and executes to perfection... with a little punk thrown in for bad measure.

"One of the principles—if not characteristics—of the band is that it's been grinding through for long, long periods of time," seconds Blitz. "Decades to this point. And not necessarily with huge gains with regards to popularity, but for sure, with huge gains in as much as we can earn a living while doing the kind of music that we want. And so the idea of grinding it out over the decades became a device for writing the album, whether it would be riffs or lyrics."

More evident in the band's panoramic classic metal passages, but even articulated here on "Our Finest Hour," is another storied Overkill trademark, the definition one gets in the band's bass parts. Combine this with the Mensa-like percussive wizardry of Ron Lipnicki (laid bare for all to hear at headphone levels through the smack of his gravity-defying double bass work), and 'The Grinding Wheel' emerges as a record with a remarkable rhythm section foundation from which to rise
