Necroshine is the tenth full-length album released by the thrash metal band Overkill in early 1999, on CMC International records.

It is the first Overkill album to feature a guest vocalist, with singer Blitz's sister Mary Ellsworth performing background vocals on "Let Us Prey" and a duet with Blitz on "Revelation". The title track is an almost permanent addition to Overkill's live set, being played at almost every live performance since its release.[2] Necroshine was reissued along with From the Underground and Below (1998) as part of a box set in 2003.[3] As of November 1999, Necroshine sold over 20,500 copies in the United States.[4]
