Let The Metal Do The Talking = LP = (LP)
Sweden's Overdrive (not to be confused with their N.W.O.B.H.M. counterparts from the Midlands) was formed in August of 1980 out of the two local bands Paradize (who recorded one 7" single) and Ocean (who recorded two 7" singles and one album). Just one year later they issued their debut mini album entitled "Reflexions" in a circulation of 500 copies on their own label (today a precious collector's item fetching prices of around 200 Euros). In 1983 Overdrive recorded their first longplayer for Planet Records. "Metal Attack" was a mighty fine metal album propelling Overdrive to the forefront of the Swedish Metal scene (hot on the heels of the legendary Heavy Load). After a further album "Swords and Axes" Overdrive split up in 1985. During the course of the 1990s band leader and guitarist Janne Stark became an author and published two phenomenal books on the Swedish Metal scene (a third one is already in the making, due to come out in October 2013). Overdrive re-united for the first time proper in 2003 to play a one-off show at the local "Rockslaget Festival". In 2008 the long-awaited third full-length album "Let The Metal Do The Talking" was released and is now being issued on vinyl for the first time through High Roller Records. Along with Janne Stark on guitars, the line-up consists of Per Karlsson (vocals), Kjell Jacobsson (guitars), Kenth Ericsson (bass) and Kenta Svensson (drums). "Let The Metal Do The Talking" is a damned good metal album which clearly shows the traditional roots of Overdrive but doesn't sound dated at all. Overdrive recorded two more full-length albums after "Let The Metal Do The Talking", namely "Angelmaker" and "The Angelmaker's Daughter", both in 2011.
