Gnarly, confrontational and relentless - Overt Enemy are delivering the next generation of Texas thrash metal.
Formed as a Slayer tribute band in 2013 by drummer Jaime Ayala and frontman Leo Ortiz, Overt Enemy has since evolved into one of the fastest growing metal acts in Texas. With a uniquely versatile set that blends razor sharp originals and unerring Slayer covers, Overt Enemy have honed a sound that is wholly their own. Rather than aping Slayer, Overt Enemy’s original music also draws from bands like Pantera, Strapping Young Lad and Corrosion of Conformity. They emphasize an aggressive clean vocal delivery, thought provoking lyrics and a classic twin guitar attack. Their distinct stage show and potent songs has them well on their way to becoming Texas’s go to thrash metal band.
By collaborating with Confused Records on their 2018 debut, Inception, the group has built a worldwide fan base and embraced all manner of opportunities including supporting national acts like The Accused, Sons of Texas & Shattered Sun. Simultaneously, Overt Enemy have built strong relationships with their local rock station, KFRQ 94.5FM as well as international stations like Castledown FM in the UK and received favorable press from magazines/websites including Metal Hammer & Metal Injection. Suffice it to say, the groups infectious grooves have started to conquer the world.
