Overcharge is in fact punk rock, rock ‘n roll, and speed metal rolled up into one. The Italians sound like a drunken fistfight between Motörhead and Kill ’em All-era Metallica, if everyone involved was gargling broken glass and Discharge was playing on the jukebox. It’s nothing less than adrenaline-fueled, mohawked mayhem!
Featuring a member of label mates Omnivore, Overcharge wear their influences on their tattoo sleeves, but don’t sound overly beholden to any one of them. Like all good rock ‘n roll, songs and riffs matter more here than emulating a specific set of heroes. Accelerate will be the first full-length from these maniacs. Eric (ND)
