Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth on The MetalSucks Podcast #483


Legendary thrash metal lifer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth is our guest this week on The MetalSucks Podcast! In this episode, we discuss Overkill’s 20th album Scorched, coming out this Friday, as well as the positive changes he’s witnessed in the last 40 years of being in the music business. And in that vein, we also try to find out what his secret is to longevity in the heavy metal scene, the difficulty of separating the business with the love of making music, how the demo of Scorched kept him sane through the pandemic, and how third time was the charm for completing the new album.

Along with his chat with Ellsworth, Petar is joined by Brandon to tackle the sheer fraudulent embarrassing that is Kid Rock, him catering to hate and transphobia to sell tickets to his show, what makes an artists clearly disingenuous to their fanbase, and Mötley Crüe setting off their latest drama for all of us to see.
