Nige Rockett interviewed on March 30th 2019 by the Vampire on Metal Bloodshed, Messiah Radio International.
ONSLAUGHT formed in Bristol England in 1983 with their first album released in 1985, “Power from Hell,” despite showing some signs of thrash, also had a strong influence of hardcore punk, “The Force,” released just a year later in 1986, was regarded as a masterpiece of the Thrash genre, and right after the bands third album released in 1989 “In Search of Sanity,” the band’s broke up for a good while in 1991. They reunited in 2004 and released the solid “Killing Peace” in 2007 through Candlelight Records.
The band released 3 albums since their refromation: ’Killing Piece” in 2007, “Sounds of Violence in 2011 and “VI” in 2013 all three proved to be more heavier and darker but, however “VI” is Onslaught’s best of all the three and probably the band greatest achievement so far.
You made the statement after the album was released that “’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.
ONSLAUGHT’s sixth album, “VI”, was released on September 20 via AFM Records.
