Overkill is the second studio album by English metal band Motörhead, originally released in March 1979 by Bronze Records.

Motörhead's landmark second album, Overkill, marked a major leap forward for the band, and it remains without question, one of their all-time best. 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 raw and in your face heavy metal style. 

Motörhead, the band's self-titled debut from 1977, had been rush-recorded, and its stripped-down, super-raw sound wasn't all that impressive, at least not relative to what would follow. Overkill is what followed. The band's sound is fully formed here, and it totally explodes right off the bat on the title track. A number of Motörhead standards follow, among them "Stay Clean" and "No Class".

The band's classic line-up - Lemmy (bass and vocals), "Fast" Eddie Clarke (guitar), and "Philthy Animal" Taylor (drums) - is well in place here, and they seem eager to rip loose wildly on every single song. This, in addition to the solid track listing and production, makes Overkill a perfect Motörhead album. Several great ones would follow, of course, but Overkill was the first of the great ones, and quite possibly the greatest of all.

Check out the tracks: “Overkill” and ”No Class”. 

This reissued LP with reproduced original artwork and digital download code is pressed in Europe on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl by Sanctuary Records.
