Bloodletting is the eleventh studio album by American thrash metal rock band Overkill, originally released in October 2000 by Metal-Is Records.

Bloodletting was probably the first sign that the 90’s drought in the thrash genre was withering, and that somewhere down the road the style would formalize itself once again. It cut through the bands efforts like a hot knife through butter, with an excellent sound quality and the band's ever tasteful blend of groove and thrash, hitting on the highs of both without descending into the patented stupidity of some other bands. 

Bloodletting isn’t ambitious in any real way, just a band finding a way to merge two sounds into one. Emphasis is placed on catchy writing, such as the thunderous opener "Thunderhead", and the tasty closer "Can't Kill A Dead Man". Plenty of moments spread around to appeal to the denim thrashers and the tough guys to pound their chests to.

Bloodletting saw the modern era of Overkill coming to fruition, primarily through them abandoning any attempts to rangle in the 90's tough guy crowds and instead funnelling the current style into their older roots. Emphasis is on simpler writing, but the catchiness and thumping punishment remains. The year 2000 saw a few bands redeem themselves in thrash, this effort being one of them.

Check out the tracks: “Thunderhead”; “Bleed Me” and “I, Hurricane”.

This reissued double 2LP record set with printed insert and etched Side D is pressed in Europe on black vinyl via Nuclear Blast Records.
