Bullet Tooth to release 3xCD Overcast discography
Official press release: Bullet Tooth is excited to announce the 3x CD Discography "Only Death Is Smiling" from Massachusetts' metal legends Overcast. The band started in the early 90s long before the explosion of metal from the New England area, and released a few albums on indie labels until the late 90s when they broke up to focus on new bands like Shadows Fall and Killswitch Engage, and more recently, Death Ray Vision. As a lot of their titles are currently out of print, the band decided to release "Only Death Is Smiling" on Bullet Tooth featuring 45 tracks on 3 separate CDs, scheduled for release late 2014. To say that Overcast were legendary is fairly accurate, as most newer metal bands have paid tribute to the obvious influences in their music. In fact, some give Overcast credit for starting the massive sub-genre called metalcore. Their recent performance at This Is Hardcore in Philadelphia sent hundreds of metal and hardcore fans into a frenzy with their brutal and technical metal written with the dancefloor in mind.
