The Deal

Overkill

  • What Overkill sounded like in 1980: brutal, relentless drums and guitar that screamed with a mosh pit-igniting ferocity
  • What’s changed since then: with the exception of personnel and pants, not much
  • Ways to describe the band that aren’t anything like “brutal” or “relentless”: prolific, packed with staying power, Billboard-charting
  • The Overkillers: Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth, D.D. Verni, Dave Linsk, Derek Tailer, and Ron Lipnicki
  • The Songwriters: Ellsworth and Verni, which makes them the Lennon and McCartney of aural carnage
  • Their latest: 2014’s White Devil Armory
  • Mid-career milestone to check out: 1991’s Horrorscope

Symphony X

  • Nine: the number of band members Symphony X has had over the years, including one who left and later came back
  • What all nine have in common: a knack for progressive metal with epic ambitions; a childhood possession by the demon Pazuzu
  • Their latest: 2015’s Underworld, which was inspired by Dante’s Inferno
  • Other career milestone to heck out: 2011’s Iconoclast, which warns about a future in which machines conquer the world
