Overcast was an American metalcore band that started in the early 1990s, but broke up in 1998 after an unsuccessful tour.[3] In 2006 they reunited to play the 2006 installment of the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and announced that they would release a new album entitled Reborn to Kill Again with 11 re-recorded classic tracks and two unreleased tracks.[4][5] In 2011, ex-Overcast band-mates: Mike D'Antonio, Pete Cortese and Brian Fair announced the formation of their new side-project; "Death Ray Vision".[6] Overcast is often regarded as the godfather of metalcore.[7][8][9]
