Onslaught: UK Thrashers Set for Return!

VI is their most aggressive offering yet, apparently...

When speaking about thrash metal from England, Onslaught is the first name that comes to mind. Their comeback Killing Peace (2006) was a strong effort, with Sounds Of Violence (2011) the legendary band from Bristol even delivered a new classic of the genre. Almost impossible to keep this high level or even exceed from here - one should think... but the thrash veterans have managed the impossible and their new album VI (to be released on September 20th) will be proof of it.

Therefore it's only logical that guitarist Nige Rockett is euphoric as never before: "Well, the new album Vi is finally complete and ready to roll on September  20th and man it has exceeded all our expectations, by a long long way! We really pushed ourselves to the limits in making this record and I think that truly shines through in the final results. VI is the most brutal and technical album Onslaught has ever made no question, it's  ‘Old School', it's contemporary and it's fucking aggressive in the extreme, with a few big suprises thrown in for good measure! We’ve gone about the whole album making process with a completely different approach and mindset this time around, ranging from the artwork (by Par Oloffson) through to the final mixes with Thomas Johansson, who I must single out for mention along with our Drummer Michael Hourihan for really upping the ante in the arse kicking stakes! We’re feeling kinda proud right now and pretty confident the fans are gonna dig it too..!!"
