OVERKILL Bobby Blitz comments, „Man, it seems like for F-in ever since we chatted!!!! Ha! I tell you what, this is the longest ever between Overkill releases, Feb ’19 to April ’23.

For me, it became my ‚peterpandemic‘ go-to. I wrote my part, tore it down, then again and again. I found myself still changing parts while Colin was mixing! It became the normal in a very abnormal time, sanity amongst the insanity. Somewhere in ‚Scorched‘ that is all reflected, a common thread, it is the place I went to get what I needed, maybe what „we“ needed. It’s different, that’s for sure an old-school approach/mix in a modern world….was it worth the wait? You tell me…….see ya on the road! Horns up!“
