OVERKILL's BOBBY 'BLITZ' ELLSWORTH Interviewed On 'The Pit' (Audio)
Andrew "Drewcifer" Sample of "The Pit" on the 101.5 FM K-Rock radio station in Northeast Kansas recently conducted an interview with vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth of New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL. You can now listen to the chat below. OVERKILL's new album, "White Devil Armory", was released on July 22 in North America via eOne Music (July 18 in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records). The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and was mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012's "The Electric Age". OVERKILL's videos for "Bitter Pill" and "Armorist" wre filmed with veteran director Kevin J. Custer (HATEBREED, TESTAMENT, SUFFOCATION). Custer previously worked with OVERKILL on the "Electric Rattlesnake" and "Bring Me The Night" clips. "White Devil Armory" track listing: 01. Freedom Rings 02. Where There's Smoke... 03. Pig 04. Armorist 05. Down To The Bone 06. Bitter Pill 07. King Of The Rat Bastards 08. Another Day To Die 09. It's All Yours 10. In The Name The limited-edition box-set version of "White Devil Armory" includes a digipack CD, a leather belt and buckle plus a certificate of authenticity. Speaking about what OVERKILL was trying to accomplish with "White Devil Armory", Ellsworth told Artisan News: "My personal motivation, and I can probably speak for my partner D.D. [Verni, bass], is that you don't want repetition. Obviously, we are what we are — a thrash metal band — [and] we fall into, let's say, a subgenre of this metal community, but the idea is that you wanna stay interested with it, you want to try, to some degree, to reinvent yourself. And I think the thing I'm most proud of when it comes to a record like Number 17, being 'White Devil Armory', is that that's the push for it. No repetition. Let's get in there and let's define that line between repetition and what style is. I write all these notes in my office where I have my little studio — 'Don't repeat yourself,' 'Don't use this,' 'Don't use that' — and that becomes kind of the flavor of the writing: Stay relevant, great execution, modern presentation. Make Number 17 relevant in 2014."
