Well this and DBtO are top-notch metal anyway, so I can't blame anyone for thinking they're the best things metal ever saw.

It all comes down to personal taste.

Having said that, this has some of the tightest songwriting in metal history.

I'd even say it has a bit of a Floyd-esque flow to it.

While I won't go into my personal views on KD's vox, I wouldn't have picked anyone else for this album. His vocal switches fit the dynamics on here to a T.

Dem riffs man, dem riffs.

There are plenty of those in here, but it all comes down to Demon Bell.

Some of the tightest songwriting on an album ever.

Need to jam it hard this week so I can 5 it.

Hmm. They prob take a bit more effort to get into than Priest or Maiden, but Overkill is a pretty sweet album.

I'm finishing it atm.

Overkill rules hard agreed. One of the best '70s albums and Motorhead released Bomber in the same year!

Digging: Saviour Machine - Saviour Machine I

Took me long enough to 5 this, but it had to be done.

With no disrespect to MoR or SWoD, this is the epitome of a perfect metal album.
