Battle of the bands
It's a battle of east vs. west today.
Overkill emerged from the New York/New Jersey area in the early 80's and slowly built a following. They released an EP and an album on Megaforce before signing to a major. Their popularity increased hitting a peak around the late 80's very early 90's. They are still going on releasing an album every other year and touring regularly.
Testament started as Legacy in the Bay area scene. They rose through the ranks and changed names and singers. They were signed to a major label for their debut and climbed in popularity peaking around 1990. They pushed on through the rest of the 90's with line-up and style changes. The last decade has seen them come and go and come again with a few albums and some major supporting slots on tours.
