Overkill - Years of Decay Demo II 1989


Overkill - Years of Decay Demo II. This tape was never released commercially. Recorded 6/15 and 6/16/1989 and given to Jonny Z at Megaforce records. This tape saw the light of day at Jonny Z's garage sale a few years back and has made it's way into my collection.  Sharing for historical purposes only. I am not interested in leaking the audio files...Dave G.

Hello Dave:
How's the quality of the demo?
Is there's any change in the songs?
Thanks!
Tony

Hi Tony,

The quality is excellent, It's a completely different recording than the Lp so there are some small differences.

First of all thanks for your answer and for sharing this really rare item...it's just amazing.
I've been collecting Overkill for 20 yrs and it's the first time that i've seen this demo tape.
Can I show the photo to Bobby Gustafson & Sid Falck, to see what they can say about the tape?
Thanks!
Tony

I don't mind, however I know first hand that Bobby is not a fan of these old recordings circulating. This is why I am not providing the audio. I just posted it up for historical purposes.

I know BG has his moments, but I have asked him before about Okill bootlegs/demos (the PIB & the UTI demo)/etc. and I've never had any issue with him.

Okay let me know what you find out. It's demo II there must have been a demo I, obviously :) .
Let me know what you find out. It came direct from Jonny Zazula. I know that for a fact as I was at his garage sale a few years back when you brought all these tapes out to sell.
