Compared to what Metallica were doing? They were probably playing faster than Slayer were at this point. Hit the Lights, The Mechanix, Motorbreath, plus covers of The Prince, Am I Evil and Blitzkrieg... Doesn't matter though, Overkill were probably thrashing harder than either of them in 1982 even though no setlists exist.
