Overkill releases Killbox 13
Killbox 13 is the twelfth full-length studio album by thrash metal band Overkill in 2003.
The name stems from the fact that the band considers this to be their thirteenth release because they include the Overkill EP as their first. "Well, it is the thirteenth, but it’s only really the thirteenth for people who followed the band. There was an EP called “Overkill” back in ’84…", said Bobby Ellsworth.
Killbox 13 received much critical acclaim because some of the songs marked a return to the raw unpolished thrash style exhibited on the first album Feel The Fire, which Overkill had gradually moved away from afterwards.
