While Overkill were late starters on the thrash scene, they more than made up for it by being one of the most prolific bands of the late ’80s. Under The Influence was their third album in two years when it was released in 1988, and the rapidity at which the albums had been released had no effect on the quality of the material whatsoever. This album and others like it really helped the thrash scene peak in the late 80s. This is everything a thrash album should be. The album starts fast and heavy with shred. Track one has a powerful riff and impressive chorus. It is a premonition of things to come, for the rest of the album is just as quality. Hello From The Gutter has to be one of the top ten thrash songs ever. An amazing riff and immaculate chorus leaves you dumbfounded. ‘Under The Influence’ is a legendary thrash album. Unfortunately the scene went downhill from there. If you’re a thrash/speed fan chances are you own it, but if not, what are you waiting for?
