OVERKILL release lyric video for the song 'Head Of A Pin'

The official lyric video for the song "Head Of A Pin" 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 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.

Comments vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth: "'Head Of A Pin' took a long time to come together; it is probably the tune that went through the most changes and the last one I finished. Looking back on its development, the time invested was all well worth it. The tonality of the guitar shines on it and the song goes 'other places,' traditional with a touch of the down-low-dirty riff, and a sing-along chorus... personally, one of my favorites off 'The Wings Of War'."

"The Wings Of War" marks OVERKILL's recording debut with drummer Jason Bittner(SHADOWS FALL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), who joined the band in 2017.
