Customer Reviews

This Is Demo Onslaught Stuff.....

I just wanted to inform Dean (the previous review) that the reason this sounds like Onlaught "coming full circle" is because this material is a compilation of Onslaught's material when they were a hardcore/punk band. Although just made available, this material certainly does not reflect the Onslaught we know today.

Will The Real Onslaught Please Stand Up?

Thoughout their career, Onslaught has seemingly been a band in search of an identity. On their first album, Power From Hell, they sounded a lot like Broken Bones (i.e. hardcore punk). Onslaught went for a thrash-metal sound on the second album, The Force. They underwent some line-up changes & got the former lead singer of Grim Reaper for album number three, In Search Of Sanity. That album featured a style that was sort of a cross between Judas Priest & Queensryche. Following an 18-year recording hiatus, the band re-emerged in 2007 with Killing Peace. This album featured the line-up that had recorded The Force 21 years earlier (and was a return to the thrash style). Now in 2009 the band has released The Shadow of Death, an album that has a Broken Bones-type of sound to it. So I guess you could say the band has come full circle. I'm all for bands growing & progressing, but that's not Onslaught has been doing. They've just been jumping from on genre to another. If you're into hardcore punk, I imagine you'll like this album. If you were looking for an album that was along the lines of The Force or Killing Peace, you'll probably be saying to yourself, "Who are these guys?"


Formed: England

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '00s

Onslaught was put together by Bristol, England, guitarist Nige Rockettand drummer Steve Grice in the early '80s. The two musicians were working to forge an ultra-aggressive, speedy metal sound that was becoming more and more popular in the days of early Slayer and Metallica. In 1985, the duo were joined by bass player Jase Stallard and vocalist Paul Mahoney. The quartet quickly worked up enough material for a record and later that year, the debut Power From Hell was recorded and released on U.K....
