With this album OVERKILL prove once again that after 30 years they haven’t lost a single step. In fact, they seem to have gained a few. This just might be their best work since Necroshine, and yeah, you can quote me on that. White Devil Armory drops July 22 via eOne Music. Best when played LOUD!!
Marieke has a voice that I just can’t really gel with. Look, she’s not a bad singer at all, it’s just her approach is a little too nice and clean on this album. Musically the album is a pretty good achievement and you can hear that these guys have done their homework on the melodic metal genre, but unfortunately it falls a little short..
The sound they have created is pure early eighties AOR music that brings back vivid memories of bands like JOURNEY, SURVIVOR, FOREIGNER and TOTO just to name a few. I would personally compare the band closer to JOURNEY though, mainly because the album is biased more toward the ballad aspect of things and also the vocalist GIU OLIVER has an uncanny knack of sounding very similar to the legend that is STEVE PERRY when he wants to.
