Overkill @ House of Blues Orlando 2024

I hadn’t seen Overkill since their “World of Hurt Tour” in like 1993 if I recall correctly. So I’m not exactly sure why I waited until the last minute to decide to make the drive over to Orlando to catch them play at the House of Blues.

Because I procrastinated that meant I didn’t have a press pass. That lead to a couple of things: I don’t have to write a review(!), no photo pit access, and no “cameras with detachable lenses” allowed. The first rule totally makes sense. But the camera rule is just dumb, and annoying. But, I also kinda get it; you don’t want 50 people swinging around telephoto lenses while everyone’s trying to enjoy the show.

Anyway… I couldn’t not take photos of one of my favorite metal bands, so I brought along my trusty “Tiny Sony”. A RX100 mk3. This camera is way better than it has any right to be. It’s 10 years old at this point, has a 20MP “one inch” sensor, a 24-70 f2.8 equivalent lens, and shoots at an amazing 10fps.

You’re probably not here to read about my camera choices, and technical specs on a 10 year old camera that you can’ t buy anymore. As Overkill says, “We don’t care what you say, fuck you!”

Overkill was, and still remains, one of the loudest shows that I’ve seen. These guys obviously love what they do. It shows in both their energy on stage and their interaction with the audience. They absolutely killed it!
