For their never-ending need to destroy several members of the N.Y. thrash legends OVERKILL needed another outlet to vent their anger and frustration. One band was simply not enough! Fueled by intensity and a bloodlust so strong it could start a war. They set in motion a mechanism to conquer the world. Founder of the band Dave Linsk started writing songs with the intentions of them being used for OVERKILL. Dave and Drummer Tim Mallare got together to demo the tunes. These songs took on a different direction then the direction OVERKILL is currently taking, hence the birth of SPEED/KILL/HATE.
