Overkill mercifully chose to bide their time regarding the release of their first professionally produced live album. The early '90s brought us behind the scenes footage alongside then-new music videos in Videoscope, but other than bootlegs, quality live footage of Overkill was simply not easy to procure. The real bummer here is that the this particular lineup of Overkill had the best stage presence along with seamless integration of the old material with the new. With Overkill's lineup facing an uncertain future for the second time in five years, the band decided to release their first earnest attempt at a live album as well as a rightfully-deserved swansong for departing axeslingers Cannavino and Gant.

What elevates this above Overkill's other live album Wrecking Everything is the same thing that brought down the aforementioned 2002 album: it's location in Overkill's history. While Wrecking Everything suffered from the inclusion of the tepid groove material that had begun to infect the band's setlists in earnest by that point, Wrecking Your Neck Live benefits from being released prior to The Killing Kind, Bloodletting, and the other late '90s albums that contributed much of the lamer material to Wrecking Everything. Being dropped during the cryptic period immediately following W.F.O., we naturally get a lot of material from said album, along with large chunks of I Hear Black and Horrorscope. When I was younger I would simply call this the "W.F.O. live album", since most of the band's 1994 record is included here. In fact, many of the songs here are obscure W.F.O. inclusions that were likely never/rarely played again afterward, like "Under One" and "Supersonic Hate".

The I Hear Black material is naturally neither here nor there from an entertainment viewpoint, although the two cuts included are among that album's best, making Wrecking Your Neck Live only that much easier to digest at the end of the day. The inclusion of my all-time Overkill favorite "New Machine" earns the album big personal brownie points, and other than a lack of material from Taking Over, the group's earlier material is represented well-enough. In typical Overkill fashion the proceedings are wrapped up courtesy of the cover song "Fuck You". All-in-all a great setlist that is skewed towards material that is all but entirely disregarded nowadays, helping give Wrecking Your Neck Live a unique value even today.

Ironically, this release also sounds much like W.F.O., with Verni's clanging bass tones leading the charge alongside Cannavino's polished rhythm. The guitars aren't necessarily quiet, but just like on the album they often represent here, the six-strings can't help but embody an afterthought of sorts after the vehement bass is taken into account. Verni even includes a one-off bass instrumental called "Anxiety". It sounds decent enough and reminds the crowd that Verni actually does have fairly deft fingers on the four-string, lest we forget. Mallare's presence was still fresh at the time of Wrecking Your Neck Live's release, so he plays with more a fire lit under his ass and feels the need to ratchet up the speed most of the time, adding a new dimension to otherwise plodding mid-paced numbers like "Under One".

While Wrecking Everything is longer and features a video companion piece, it still can't dethrone Wrecking Your Neck Live as Overkill's greatest live record. The production values are crisp and pluggy, lending to the guitars' neck-jerking patterns and Gant's digital-sounding leads. Blitz is also showcased during one of his better vocal periods. Bittersweet conclusion to the end of an era.
