For four decades, Overkill have been the trailblazers in producing some of the most signature moments in the world of metal. On April 14, the New Jersey thrash legends will bludgeon your ears with their twentieth studio album, entitled Scorched, via Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, the band release their second single, "Wicked Place". The track offers undeniable blues elements that give off old-school rock n' roll feels. Check out the visualizer for “Wicked Place” below, and listen to the song on all streaming platforms, here.

Bobby Blitz comments, "One of my favorite rides on the record, a big thick groove reminiscent of days gone by, with a modern punch in the snoot! Get Wicked!"b

Scorched offered a new recording environment as all members were able to record on their own. The mixing of the record was handled by Colin Richardson and his assistant engineer Chris Clancy. Johnny Rodd helped with producing vocals, and finally, Maor Appelbaum took over mastering and adding finishing touches. The band returned to artist Travis Smith to create the album cover art.
