"The Grinding Wheel mixes impressively fast old school vibes with a progressive songwriting, killer choruses and the signature OVERKILL groove of the 90s. New Jersey's Finest once again managed to both keep and evolve their unique sound This is how traditional fresh thrash should sound in 2017."
"Fast thrash with a groovy touch, lots of melody and excellent vocals. OVERKILL proves that they are still one of the leading bands in thrash metal. This 18th album is a killer."
