Onslaught

I didn’t know what to expect walking into The Garage; it is a small but very nice venue, and from my experiences, the smaller the venue the better it is for a band to interact with the crowd, and each band that performed tonight did just that.

Onslaught – Helsinki, Finland

April 26th, 2011

782_logo.jpg

The 7th of April

HELSINKI, FINLAND

Review and pics by Arto Lehtinen

The long time British thrash metal veterans Onslaught have constantly visited up here in Finland. The five piece visited the Masters Of Metal event last year with 1349, Bibleblack and others. The headlining tour of their own was just a matter of time. When the latest brutal piece of metal titled SOUNDS OF VIOLENCE saw the light of day Onslaught embarked upon a massive European tour with a couple of supports such as Suidakra and Final Depravity. Before Onslaught hit the road, the  co-founder and original drummer Steve Grice pulled out and was replaced by the former Extreme Noise Terror/Desecration skinman.

ONSLAUGHT Unveil First Video In Twenty Years Via Metal Injection Today

March 1st, 2011

A world premiere of the brand new video from UK thrash legends ONSLAUGHT is available via online video juggernaut Metal Injection now!

 

The title track to the band’s brutal new studio album, the video for “Sounds Of Violence” is ONSLAUGHT’s first official video in twenty years, the last being from the band’s 1990 full-length In Search Of Sanity. “The Sound Of Violence,” stated ONSLAUGHT vocalist Sy Keeler “was inspired by the horrendous loss of over 150,000,000 souls throughout the 20th Century, instigated by religious tyranny and dictatorial madness of humankind. The lyrics echo the horrific realities of war and remarkable resistance endured by our fellow men and women which continues to this day. Wake up world; welcome to a land of devastating brutality where conflict is a part of everyday life. This is the Sound Of Violence.” The video was filmed and edited By Lukas Hambach of Bloodwork Entertainment (Destruction, Gamma Ray) and produced by Tommy Morriello and Thosten Lütje.

 

 

ONSLAUGHT’s fifth studio album Sounds Of Violence was released in North American in early February via Germany’s AFM Records. The now critically-acclaimed album falls perfectly in line with their massive 2007 comeback album Killing Peace, yet broadens the classic ONSLAUGHT style once again, helping the band maintain an original edge. Recorded and produced in the renowned Hansen-Studios (Destruction, Heathen, Mercenary), the blazing record boasts ten brand new original tracks, as well as a cover of Motörhead’s classic “Bomber,” featuring guest appearances by Phil Campbell (Motörhead) and Tom Angelripper (Sodom).

 

ONSLAUGHT members Sy Keeler and Nige Rockett are available for interviews to North American journalists via Earsplit anytime via phone or email. Please get in touch for more information, and stay tuned for more ONSLAUGHT updates as the band prepare to assault North America full-on later this year!

 

“…this is as good as metal gets… 10/10″ – Ultimate Guitar

 

“…a massive dose of skull-crushing metal with first-rate guitar work and angry lyrics.” – About.com

 

“It’s as violent musically and conceptually as it’s predecessor… put this on your ‘must buy’ list for 2011.” – Hellride Music

 

“…the darkest, meanest sounding and heaviest album in their career. 4/5″ – Metal Rules

 

“…Onslaught’s finest effort. Everything comes together here, from the thick buzz saw riffs to the deft songwriting and arrangement. 5/5″ – Dangerdog

 

“…easily Onslaught’s best album and a must-have for thrash-heads. 4.5/5″ – The New Review

 

“…a collection of songs that not only stand up to their already-impressive legacy, but in fact build on it. 4.5/5″ – OneMetal

 

“…a relentless, well-crafted and fresh-sounding metal record… 4.5/5″ – The Metal Register

Onslaught – Nige Rockett

January 10th, 2011

782_logo.jpg

The British legendary thrash metal five piece Onslaught reunited five years ago. The band did plenty of gigs all around. As a result of the reunion, the triumphant KILLING PEACE saw the light of day.  The band’s newest opus SOUNDS OF VIOLENCE takes their brand of thrash metal to into a more extreme phase, presenting the pure true and violent thrash metal to the bone. Onslaught hasn’t given up an inch. The British thrashers will soon be embarking on gigs and festivals. It is a huge pleasure to have a chat with one of the founding members of Onslaught, Nige Rockett. He tells more about why the band chose to work with Jacob Hansen and why the band signed a deal with AFM. Time now for METAL FORCESSS.

Masters Of Metal – Klubi Tampere Finland

June 4th, 2010

banner.JPG¨

Masters of Metal is another addition to the map of the Finnish metal festivals. Originally the event was planned to be carried out in a bigger venue. However, because of the unexpected low ticket sales the whole MOM event was switched to a smaller venue and a couple of bands got dropped from the bill. However the line-up looked pretty solid which should have drawn more people to the event. After all approximately 300 people crawled out to the MOM event. Although the line-up looked all in all solid, but as for the general arrangements of the event, the roadie and break time between each bands was occasionally quite insanely long. That definitely bugged some people off even though the beer was cold and metal ruled. But even though the festival is a small indoor one, if the people of the fest believes in the future of the fest, then we can expect to have another MOM event in the next year.

Damnation Festival 2008 – Leeds University, UK

December 18th, 2008

announce_9a434.jpg

DAMNATION FESTIVAL

22nd November 2008

Leeds University, UK

All live pics and review by HannTu


The Damnation Festival has a proud history of serving up quality metal to metalheads in the British Isles for quite a few years now. It has come from humble beginnings to currently span three indoor stages, and attracting big names in metal as well as breaking newer independent bands is its aim. Mille Petrozza of Kreator called it right, he said that “this isn’t a festival for scenes and trends”. Indeed, and with this year’s varied line-up, ranging from Carcass to My Dying Bride to Berserker to Sigh, there was something in it for everyone.

The Underworld, Camden

All live pics and review by HannTu

A night of old school thrash, with the re-formed veterans from Bristol, Onslaught touring in support of their recent album KILLING PEACE, and the German legends of thrash, Destruction – what more could you ask for? A night with glamour model Jordan and a lifetime supply of beer, but I digress…
