British thrash metal legends Onslaught, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, have posted an update in regards to their anticipated sixth full-length studio album, which is supposed to be out on September 13th. They write:
“What a totally crazy week this has been in the Onslaught camp! Nige Rockett and Andy Rosser-Davies have completed the recording of all 36 rhythm guitar tracks for the new ‘Slaught album, Mic Hourihan has completed all the drum tracking (which I can honestly say sounds truly fucking explosive!!). Things are rocking harder than we could have ever imagined right now…
In other news, we are extremely stoked to welcome Pär Olofsson on board as the band’s artist for the new album sleeve. The first rough sketches are awesome and in a very different style from every other album cover we have made. [We] can’t wait to see the final design!
Also been speaking to a very good friend and A&R guy from London Records-era about something which is very very interesting, and to cap off the week of madness, we are to take part in the longest in-depth interview we have ever done with our friend Laurent from Snakepit fanzine… No rest for the wicked.”
Onslaught’s most recent studio album Sounds of Violence was released in 2011 on AFM Records. It was the follow-up to 2007’s Killing Peace, the band’s first since 1989’s In Search of Sanity.
