Historically speaking, the Thrash Metal titans known as Overkill have been wrecking our necks since 1980 and their catalog is rife with tunes that inspire some of the wildest mosh pits ever experienced. 2018 finds the band celebrating two of their bodies of work with the live CD/DVD entitled “Live In Overhausen” which comes care of their label, Nuclear Blast Records. Recently the band unveiled the first trailer about the release. Check it out.
About The Clip: Celebrating the band’s history, Live In Overhausen, captured not one but two album anniversaries. Fans assembled on April 16, 2016 at Turbinenhalle 2 in Oberhausen, Germany for the 25th Anniversary of “Horrorscope” and 30th Anniversary of where it all began, “Feel The Fire”. A full night of kill from the past played loud and in its entirety!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told this is not a big deal of a trailer outside of it sharing the ideas that will be manifested in the forthcoming live video release and its subsequent album. It’s a nice teaser but the band founders who speak (Blitz and D.D.) don’t really outline much more than they decided to do two of their classic albums for the recording. It’s not a bad idea since we haven’t had a live Overkill recording in many, many years. This behind the scenes clip doesn’t even feature any of their sonic live show outside of a quick blink of the stage from the audience. I’ll be watching out for additional trailers and will surely share them here when we are alerted. Did you like this teaser? Chime in below as its always welcome.

If you’ve never witnessed the crushing brutality that is the band Behemoth, then you’re going to want to maximize this next video on your screen and indulge as Metal Blade Records presents the band doing their song “The Satanist” in concert. The clip hails from their forthcoming video and CD release “Messe Noire”. You’ve been warned.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add here other than the fact that while this is a solid delivery and execution of the title track from their “The Satanist” album; there is truly no better way to experience Behemoth than with your own eyes in a club where they might be playing. I wouldn’t recommend that the newbies stand too close to the stage since the crowd surfing can get out of hand, but standing on the periphery of it all or viewing down from up above is worth doing. I’ve been seeing Behemoth in concert since 2004 unless I am off a year and its always an experience that leaves me exhausted but wanting more. I’ve even been fortunate enough to have met the guys over the years and to have covered their work here on the website. Just click THIS LINK to open up any posts that refer to them. You’ll find a little bit of everything by doing that and most posts have links to Amazon.com purchase points to spark your grabbing the credit card. Currently, Behemoth is one of the many bands that are supporting the final tour by Slayer. They are on the first leg and if you’ve interest in catching them you better act fast or risk missing out on it. “Messe Noire” will hit the streets in April.
Today is a great day to be a Heavy Metal fan my friends because not only has the mighty Judas Priest released their 18th album with “Firepower”, but the ever-inspiring Nightwish has delivered their greatest songs compilation “Decades” AND offered up a fourth Behind The Scenes trailer about it. As I’ve shared the previous three, it was a guarantee that I would continue the process so let’s look at the next chapter about this album and how it came to be.
The excitement continues to build for the brand new Nightwish album “Decades” and its subsequent tour and with this being the case, the folks at Nuclear Blast Records are continuing to deliver a series of “Behind The Scenes” clips. So far we’ve seen “Origins” and “The Evolution Of Nightwish” – Now it’s time for the third installment in this series that discusses “Song Choices”. Take a look.
As the excitement for the brand new Nightwish album “Decades” and its subsequent touring amps up, the fine folks over at Nuclear Blast Records have begun a series of “Behind The Scenes” clips. The first one was “Origins” and can be examined HERE in case you missed it. Now let’s all enjoy the second clip which is entitled “The Evolution Of Nightwish”. I’ll return at the close with a brief thought.
