Nuclear Assault was a NYC thrash metal band that formed in 1984. They were one of the main bands of the genre to emerge from the East Coast along with Overkill, Whiplash, Toxik, Carnivore, and Anthrax. "Game Over" was their debut album on Combat Records. Leaving Anthrax to their destiny, bassist (and co-founder) Dan Lilker formed Nuclear Assault, taking 'Thrax roadie John Connelly with him on vocals and guitar. On Game Over, whilst drawing from Lilker's contributions to Fistful of Metal and Speak English or Die, Nuclear Assault debuts a delightfully ugly thrash, crossover and speed metal hybrid dripping with humour and 80s paranoia.
