ONSLAUGHT were formed in Bristol, England by Nige Rockett (guitar) & Paul Hill (bass in 1983 and began life under the influence of second generation hard-core punk, but exploiting a strong love for a more metallic sound they would quickly search out this more defined style and secure a deal to release first album, the dark and anarchic “Power From Hell”. In 1986, with the addition of new vocalist Sy Keeler, the band then signed to Music For Nations and released what has probably become their definitive record of the time, “The Force”. Containing thrash classics like “Let There Be Death” and “Metal Forces”, it would receive rave reviews across the world that would catapult the band into the higher echelons of thrash. Sad then, that it’s follow up, “In Search Of Sanity” (released on London Records in 1989), would prove, despite being the band’s biggest selling LP of the period, to be the end of this particular journey for the band…

Yet you can’t keep a good beast down though! 14 years later, in 2005, Keeler was back, and the first chord of ONSLAUGHT’s return was let loose….! The band signed a new deal with Candlelight, recording that all-important 4th studio album “Killing Peace” with Andy Sneap. The fiery vitriol and all important angst that had dominated the early years returned, and has continued to be all-present during this and the band’s last two albums “Sounds Of Violence” and “VI”. Very soon, a new masterpiece is about to follow, and as a first taste the band has just released the single 'A Perfect Day To Die'. So get ready for ONSLAUGHT thrashing your neck at BANG YOUR HEAD!!! 2023 with old and soon-to-be classics!
