«A sleezy mash-up of speed-metal and punk, something appropriate to listen to while doing whip-its in your parents' basement» (Metal Injection)
OVERCHARGE is a Fuel-Injected Metalpunk Machine formed in 2012 in Varese Italy with its unnecessary coating of asphalt and concrete. Since the early days, its intent was clear: playing fast and loud rock’n’roll music as a trio powered by beer and Antifa principles.
They recorded the first album at Studio Šopa (CZ) in January 2014: “Accelerate” was released through Unspeakable Axe, Dead Beat, and Hellforced Records and reviewed as a «debut kick to the balls sure to leave one heck of a bruise in the morning» (Metal Forces Magazine).
The band played gigs several times and during 2015 Marcio joined the band on bass & vocals; 2016 brought the band to the attention of three European labels (AngryVoice, Metal Age, Insane Society), which joined forces to release OVERCHARGE second album: “Speedsick”, recorded at La Sauna ad mastered at Audiosiege (Iron Reagan/Obituary), out at the end of June.
OVERCHARGE released its third full-length "MetalPunx" in March 2020, after driving thousands of kilometers on tour and sniffing gasoline together with legends like The Casualties, Hellkrusher, Tragedy, Brujeria, and Extreme Noise Terror, while a 3 tracks limited Ep "Electric Reaper" came out in 2018.
