|OVERKILL TAKING OVER Super Limited Transparent Green/Yellow 180Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
New Jersey trash metal band Overkill were formed in 1984 and named themselves after a Motörhead album. They were one of the early trash metal bands to sign to a major label and started to become successful in the late '80s, when the genre became popular with bands like Anthrax, Exodus, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Testament.
Taking Over is the second studio album by the band and was originally released in 1987. It was their first album to be released through Atlantic, who would release all of the band's albums up to W.F.O. (released in 1994). The track "Wrecking Crew" is considered one of the band's signature songs and was chosen to be the title of the band's official website (wreckingcrew.com). Both "Wrecking Crew" and "In Union We Stand" are almost always included on the band's setlist.
Taking Over is a must-have for the fans and to celebrate the re-issue of this classic album, the first 500 copies will be numbered and printed on transparent solid green with solid yellow vinyl.
