  If Skullcrusher and Who Tends the Fire weren't so damn long, than this would easily place as my second thrash album, behind Peace Sells, but those two songs drag on for so long, it just brings the whole album down. Great album still, by a ridiculously underrated band.

I don't want to start a debate but I think when it comes to Thrash, Overkill is not underrated at all. Overrated, more like.
Mediocre pussy pseudo-Thrash, Imo.

Overkill is surely underrated.

Rating: 8 I agree with Void about some of the tracks being too long, but it doesn't take away any of the perfection that is The Years Of Decay.

Rating: 9 Who Tends The Fire is too long, but Skullkrusher is fine I think. Though the shortened version of that on the Wrecking Your Neck live album was awesome, so it works either way, to be honest. Anyways, this is an awesome album, although I do slightly prefer Under The Influence over it.

Rating: 9 I like how some people think Overkill is a bad Thrash band ... well I say fuck em'
The Years Of Decay is Overkill's best by far
