OVERKILL Taps PETER TÄGTGREN For New Album Mix

Veteran New Jersey thrashers OVERKILL have tapped PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren to mix their new album in August.

OVERKILL bassist D.D. Verni has been locked in the studio putting together what will be the band's 25th anniversary release. The group is still talking with different labels, but plans are to make the new CD available at the end of the year.

Since 2010 is the 25th anniversary of the release of the debut OVERKILL album, "Feel The Fire", there are lots of plans for next year, including U.S. and European tours.

Video footage of OVERKILL' March 5, 2009 concert in Augsburg, Germany can be viewed below (courtesy of "eblinternational").

OVERKILL's second DVD, "Live at Wacken Open Air 2007", came out in February 2008 via Bodog Music. The 50-minute disc was shot during the band's headline set at the festival in front of an audience of 40,000, and features songs that span OVERKILL's 28-year career, including "Walk Through Fire" (which can be viewed below) from the group's latest disc "Immortalis", "Rotten to the Core", "Elimination", "Fuck You", "In Union We Stand", "Necroshine", "Skull and Bones", "Old School" and "Wrecking Crew".
