New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL will release their twentieth studio album, “Scorched”, on April 14 via Nuclear Blast Records. The official the visualizer for the LP’s first single, “The Surgeon”, can be seen below.

OVERKILL singer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “Man, it seems like for F-in ever since we chatted!!!! Ha! I tell you what, this is the longest ever between OVERKILL releases, Feb ’19 to April ’23. For me, it became my ‘peterpandemic’ go-to. I wrote my part, tore it down, then again and again. I found myself still changing parts while Colin [Richardson] was mixing! It became the normal in a very abnormal time, sanity amongst the insanity. Somewhere in ‘Scorched’ that is all reflected, a common thread, it is the place I went to get what I needed, maybe what “we” needed. It’s different, that’s for sure an old-school approach/mix in a modern world….was it worth the wait? You tell me…….see ya on the road! Horns up!”

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 ClancyJohnny 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.
