W.F.O.

W.F.O. is the seventh full-length album by thrash metal band Overkill, released in September 1994 on Atlantic Records. The album contains a "hidden songs" on tracks 97 and 98, featuring the band warming up in the studio, playing "Heaven And Hell" by Black Sabbath, and "The Ripper" by Judas Priest.

Overview

Overkill's self-produced seventh album W.F.O. (which stands for "Wide Fuckin' Open", a common biker term) was released as an answer to the criticism that I Hear Black had received. The album presented a fast, heads-down, old school thrash metal style without any of the experimental elements present on the previous record. The music video for "Fast Junkie" was widely ignored by MTV. Overkill continued to have bigger success overseas, mounting an extensive European tour in the fall of 1994, supported by Jag Panzer and Massacra.

This is the last Overkill album released by Atlantic Records.

This album and I Hear Black were re-released on Wounded Bird Records in 2005.
