Overkill “The Electric Age”

overkill the electric age

Overkill has done it again. They once again have written a crazy album that meets expectations and then keeps going. This time, our 10-track audio armageddon is called, The Electric Age. I don’t know how they do it, but from “Come and Get It” to the closing notes of “Good …

Cannibal Corpse “Torture”

Cannibal Corpse - Torture

Desaster “The Arts of Destruction”

Desaster - The Arts of Destruction
