Overkill is arguably one of the best and most important albums in the history of hard rock and heavy metal, marking as it does the moment when Motörhead first unleashed the ferocious musical attack they would become famous for. Combining a love of rock'n'roll, with the fury and energy of punk, nothing quite like this had ever been heard before and they quickly became pretty much the only band that appealed to rock fans and punk kids alike. It's a masterpiece which quite rightly has been the finale of Motörhead's Live performances for many years. For the rest of the album, the band opt to keep it simple,with songs built around strong but staightforward riffs, driven by Lemmy's unique bass playing style which is particularly impressive on "Stay Clean" and the slightly milder (but no less) magnificent "Metrpolis".
Motörhead's landmark second album, Overkill, marked a major leap forward for the band, and it remains one of their all-time best, without question. In fact, some fans consider it their single best, topping even Ace of Spaces. It's a ferocious album, for sure, perfectly showcasing Motörhead's trademark style of no holds barred proto-thrash - a kind of punk-inflected heavy metal style that is sloppy and raw yet forceful and in your face.
