OVERKILL “IN UNION WE STAND” – MUSIC VIDEO FROM 1987!
OVERKILL – The second studio album from this legendary and pioneering Thrash Metal band was released back in 1987, on Megaforce Records, aptly titled – TAKING OVER. When I first heard OVERKILL, that was it. I was hooked. The vocals of Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth combined with the guitar speed and Thrashin’ raging sound that Bobby Gustafson is handing out on this Taking Over album is incredible. With D.D. Verni on bass and Rat Skates on drums… this was vintage OVERKILL. I can remember the days of staring at this Taking Over album cover and thinking two words: bad ass. OVERKILL will always be bad ass for this Metalhead, each and every passing day of my Metal lovin’ life.
In Union We Stand from the Taking Over album has always been a “Metal United” anthem for me. Here’s hoping you get the same Metal thrill from this song as I do!
* A while back, I wrote a mini review on Taking Over. It shouldn’t take too many words to convince someone just how unreal great this album is. You can read it by clicking on this link: OVER KILL – TAKING OVER
