Taking Over was the second and last album with drummer Rat Skates who gave the old Overkill a punk feeling at times because of his style of drumming. Punk drums were very important in the development of early thrash metal (Slayer anyone? or what about the Celtic Frost song ‘Into The Crypts Of Rays’) Also this album can be considered their most pure old school thrash metal album with the exception of some heavy metal based material.
Aptly titled Taking Over, it was pretty imminent that Overkill meant business. They were out to take over the scene by flushing out wannabes and poseurs. The production is very heavy and I’m yet to hear a thrash metal album with such a crushing feel. This album holds a really special place in my collection. The feeling of unmatched nostalgia always seems to awaken in me as soon as I load this up in my deck.

This New York band got a lot of attention with this album, although looking back at it, the vocals of Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth are somewhat dreadful compared to how they sound now.
ALBUM INFORMATION This album concentrates most part on fast paces and technique, and some heavy sections as well, the album as a whole does not feel so heavy in its sound though. The material is though skillfully performed, most songs are catchy, there is a good variation in the songs and Bob's vocals are very good even here.
