After successfully releasing their fifteenth full-length studio album, Ironbound in 2010, Overkill took time recording demo sessions for a next album, that next album would surprisingly be their sixteenth full-length studio effort, The Electric Age.rSelling over 6,700 copies alone in the United States in it's first week of release, the album peaked at number 77 on the Billboard 200 and has since, remained as successful and as great as their previous full-length.rRe-released in 2013 as a 2-CD Special Deluxe Tour Edition featuring bonus live EP recorded live in Sydney, Australia in 2010, the recording features some of the band's best work and is as talented as they could ever possibly be!rWith hard-riffing, solid music, catchy tunes and a great production from the band themselves, The Electric Age has everything that you need in Thrash Metal!

3.5 greatDrew Tyler | July 2nd 12

Overkill found a sound they are happy with in "Ironbound" and are sticking to it here. The
band proves with this release that the old-school is still very much alive. However they
bring nothing new to the table, instead they stick to their guns and thrash hard as fuck.
Sure to be included in many people's 2012 best-of lists. 3.5/5

3.5 greatXinlo | March 29th 12

A great solid album yet again, with many memorable songs (Black Daze, Save Yourself, Old Wounds, All over But The Shouting), but as an album doesn't do anything or sound a whole lot dissimilar to Ironbound.

4.0 excellentFernando Alves STAFF | March 29th 12

Their best album since Horrorscope. Excellent piece of thrash with that old school vibe written all over it.

Bump

4.0 excellentTenebraeInvictus | March 29th 12

Overkill provides a relentless thrashfest the whole album, with very sparse variety in speed throughout the joyride.

Bump

3.5 greatBlackLlama | March 21st 12

Almost a 5... so damn close. 2 tracks in the middle ruin the mojo just a little bit however.
