Killbox 13 by Overkill
Overkill formed in the early 1980ís and had their first real success with their 1984 four track EP the self-named Overkill- this instantly plunged Overkill to the foreground of the thrash metal movement. This led Overkill to the release of their first full length album in 1985 which achieved instant success, was named a masterpiece by some and confirmed the bands place in the thrash metal scene. The band spent time touring and supporting for some huge names including Anthrax and Agent Steel. Overkill released album after album and have achieved a great deal in a successful career spanning over 20 years.
The New York/New Jersey wrecking crew known as Overkill continues to squeeze one tasty sausage out of the machine after the other, no frills, no baloney, no screwing around, no denying it. KillBox 13 finds Overkill still stubbornly refusing to shed its thrash roots, and refusing to write a throwaway tune, for that matter. The combination of the bandís stellar riffs and rock-solid arrangements with Colin Richardsonís thick, beefy production is a big, juicy steak waiting to be devoured by any self-respecting carnivore metalhead. Overkillís overall message here? Get the hell out of the way or get squished, no elaboration necessary.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
