OVERKILL Release Lyric Video For 'Last Man Standing'
The official lyric video for the song "Last Man Standing" from New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's 19th studio album, "The Wings Of War", which will be released on February 22, 2019 via Nuclear Blast. The disc was recorded at Gear Recording Studio in New Jersey, SKH Studio in Florida and Jrod Productions with engineering handled by bassist D.D. Verni and guitarist Dave Linsk. The album was produced by the band while Chris "Zeuss" Harris took care of the mixing and mastering. Travis Smith (NEVERMORE, OPETH, SOILWORK, DEATH) was again enlisted to create the artwork for the album.
"The Wings Of War" marks OVERKILL's recording debut with drummer Jason Bittner(SHADOWS FALL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), who joined the band last year.
Vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth comments: "The time has come for a first taste, 'Last Man Standing'. This cut got the unanimous nod to open 'The Wings Of War', all the way back to the first demos in March, so much so it was mock-titled 'Opener' up until the recording. Sometimes everyone is on the same page, WTF! So dig into some old-school thrash with a side order of Jersey made, headbanging."

Ellsworth said: "It was a blast making 'The Wings Of War'! It is something old feeling new again, as our chemistry was altered by the addition of Jason Bittner. I was curious from the get-go, how would it pan out? I think what we accomplished here is a new, upgraded OVERKILLthat embraced the new chemistry, while taking our roots into the present. The new formula produced not only more raw power, but more places to go with melody, a win, win. The key is being not only interested in the change, but part of it. I'll tell you what, it's still fun as hell making OVERKILL records.
