Double Bass Drummer is preferable. We will compose songs and do Projects. I can jam on.

Stalkers 1. A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years. Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean. Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.

The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper. Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest. There's a problem already though I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover. I don't like Phil's vocals.
I never had if I am being honest. The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'. When he tries to sing it just feels weak though 'Salvation' and tracks lose real punch.

Give him a riffy such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine probably a poor choice of phrase up in sixth gear. For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too. Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening". It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.
Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style de it is enjoyable enough.

That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat. Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.
There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums. The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.

The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever. The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems. There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.
In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin". As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
