“Wrecking Everything” by Overkill

Artist: Overkill
Title: “Wrecking Everything Live”
Label: Spitfire Records

Overkill’s live CD “Wrecking Everything Live” comes as a direct companion piece to the live DVD of the same name. However, this comes with some disappointing differences. While the DVD is two pieces, one being a full concert running some 22 numbers, the live CD comes as a single disk that cuts many numbers off of it in order to meet one disks time constraints.
