Overkill have always had a distinctive sound, whether playing pure thrash or a thrash/groove hybrid. That sound is anchored by two members who have been there since they started in 1980: bassist D.D. Verni and vocalist Bobby Blitz Ellsworth. That trademark sound is fully intact on The Wings Of War. The album kicks off with the noisy Last Man Standing, which is a good introduction to Bittner, whose booming drums are front and center in the intro. The thrash eventually kicks in with Ellsworth's unmistakable vocals and a memorable call to fight. That word is also prominent in the following track, the very catchy Believe in the Fight that shifts tempos between a moderate groove and a more urgent pace.The dual guitar attack of Dave Linsk and Derek Tailer is showcased throughout, from slower parts on Head of a Pin to rocket-fueled riffs on Hole In My Soul. There's some killer solo work on A Mother's Prayer. Overkill do a nice job in varying tempos to add more variety to the proceedings. Tracks like Distortion start slowly and methodically before kicking in.
