Overkill frontman Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth spoke in an interview with “Fantasm” podcast, and talked about their new album “The Wings of War”. He said:
“I never knew I’d be able to count that high, but I think it was never a long-sided plan. The plans were all cut into 19 pieces at this point and what I mean by that, is that if you suppose you make the best of opportunity number 18 and 19 will show itself.”
He also talked about the track called “Head Of A Pin”, and said:
“I love the diversity in this. It almost lends itself to an old Black Sabbath feel. Then, it goes into this whole personality of brutality. It’s not that old thing, but it almost sounds like surgical precision with regard to the beat and how that old-school type of riff fits over it.
Lyrically, I always find from album-to-album, it’s a great opportunity to write lyrics. I dispose of things that are driving me fucking crazy in my life. Once I get them out on the paper and can physically read it, sing it, I finally confessed it and have it eliminated as a problem.
Obviously, I do it from a very abstract point of view to not make it boring. But, the point is that is what this song meant to me. Like, ‘Oh, I get it now.’ Hopefully somebody else there will get it too.”
