The official the visualizer for “Wicked Place”, a new song from New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL, can be seen below
The track is taken from the band‘s twentieth studio album, “Scorched“, which will be released on April 14 via Nuclear Blast Records.
OVERKILL singer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about “Wicked Place“: “One of my favorite rides on the record, a big thick groove reminiscent of days gone by, with a modern punch in the snoot! Get wicked!”
“Scorched” offered a new recording environment for OVERKILL as all members were able to record on their own. The mixing of the record was handled by Colin Richardson and his assistant engineer Chris Clancy. Johnny Rodd helped with producing vocals, and finally, Maor Appelbaum took over mastering and adding finishing touches. The band returned to artist Travis Smith to create the album cover art.
OVERKILL spent the majority of 2019 and early 2020 touring in support of their 19th studio record, “The Wings Of War”, which arrived four years ago.
“The Wings Of War” marked the band’s recording debut with drummer Jason Bittner (SHADOWS FALL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), who joined the band in 2017.
