Solid Overkill album, but NOT their best, as often touted.

Released in 1991, HORRORSCOPE is Overkill’s fifth album of eighteen (as of this writing). It was the band’s first release after the departure of longtime guitarist/songwriter Bobby Gustafson, who was replaced by guitar duo, Merritt Gant and Rob Cannavino, the latter being Gustafson’s former guitar tech. It was also the first album to be solely composed by bassist DD Verni and vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth. Blitz has said that it’s a special album to him for this reason.

HORRORSCOPE was well-received by Overkill fans and is typically heralded as the band’s best effort just when grunge was taking the crown from 80’s metal. While it’s a competent early 90’s thrash release and arguably rivals their best albums of the 80s, I personally don’t view HORRORSCOPE as their best release. But it IS notable in that it started an important new chapter for the band, proving that they could easily carry on without Gustafson. Moreover, it paved the way for their best output yet – their great mid-90’s period: After the release of the experimental I HEAR BLACK (1993) and the capable W.F.O. (1994), which featured the best anthem ever, “Bastard Nation,” Overkill knocked it out of the ballpark with THE KILLING KIND (1996) and FROM THE UNDERGROUND AND BELOW (1997).

Getting back to HORRORSCOPE, it kicks off with the driving “Coma” followed by the formidable “Infectious” with its groovin’ ‘Hey, hey, hey’ post-chorus (or whatever) and the speed-galloping “Blood Money.” The heavy & doomy title track is another standout with its eerily stunning prologue, followed by the catchy “New Machine,” which is both conventional metal and somehow odd. Then there’s a smokin’ metal cover of Edgar Winter’s “Frankenstein,” eventually closing with the melancholy ballad “Soulitude.”

GRADE: B

Just bought this. Sounds pretty nice albeit a bit of surface noise. I also have the pop sound in 'Blood Money' as others have reported. No printed inner - just a plain paper sleeve. I guess that's what $20 gets you these days. Sad too because I have other Rhino reissues that are super. I'm torn if I should return this and go for an original being as this is my favorite Overkill album.

There is a loud "click" on the song called "Blood Money", I bought two copies at different times and a friend also tested his pressing and it has the same defect. It came off the stamper, no cleaning will take it away.

awful pressing i think. too much music on each side of 1 LP. The record is clean but still skips in a few spots.

Surprisingly good sound. A little bit low in volume, but clear and with decent bass definition. Packaging could have been better, but not bad for a reasonably cheap pressing.

Managed to get my hands on this one finally, I can confirm what is said below, really good sounding copy. Sounds pretty clear & sharp, it really does justice to the original recording. Packaging otherwise is meh, the cover is rather blurry & too bright. No lyrics inside too. Shame, could have been better on that point but the most important is the sound, and it's pretty damn good.

30 minutes of music on one side? No mastering or pressing place will tell you this is okay to do. Here's a quote from my sales rep at my pressing place: "29 minutes on one side is just crazy and only suitable for spoken word. Everything over 20 minutes is going to cut into volume and quality"

This pressing is impressive. Does anyone happen to know if it is a analogue transfer or digital?

Why can't I find anything on Rhino's many social medias about this? Only places I can find to buy it are here, Amazon (1 third party seller), and Barnes and Nobel website.

Is there any european shop for Rhino Records carrying this, or Euro resellers ? The original album is out of print since long and is pricey, I hope they'll ship some copies in Europe.
