UK veteran Thrashers, ONSLAUGHT will release their long-awaited new album ‘Generation Antichrist’ through AFM Records on 7th August. More details below…

Uncompromising thrash metal pioneers Onslaught bring a new level of brutality with one of the most ferocious albums ever made: ‘Generation Antichrist’.

This is an album inspired by a world full of hatred, megalomaniacs & political madness.
Nige Rockett comments: “We wanted this album to sound like an audio backdrop for the lyrics contained within, dark and brutal in the extreme – which is why we invited producer Daniel Bergstrand to come in and deliver what I think is an absolutely awesome mix! This is also a really perfect time for our new vocalist Dave Garnett to make his name within Onslaught.

He’s stepped up to the mark in a big way over the past year, having stood in for some live shows when Sy Keeler was unavailable. So when the full-time position became available, he really couldn’t wait to get in the studio and do the business!

Tracks such as the vicious ‘Strike Fast Strike Hard‘, ‘Bow Down To The Clowns‘ and ‘Religiousuicide‘ pin ears to the speakers and prove that the move to involve the Swedish Grammy Award-winning producer Bergstrand (Behemoth / In Flames / Meshuggah) has given Onslaught an edge that even their definitive 80’s years couldn’t quite capture.

With a groove that is dominant, Onslaught are storming upwards to where they should be, and ripping up the form book along the way!

Even at this early, early stage,” says guitarist Rockett, “everyone who has heard ‘Generation Antichrist’ has a variety of favourite tracks. ‘Strike Fast Strike Hard’ is a banging track for an Onslaught album, it’s right up there with ‘Let There Be Death’ and ‘Chaos is King’. It has a real punky edge to the chorus, which I love, it’s so fucking raw – it’s a truly relentless thrash album from start to finish that really pushed the boundaries of our playing to the maximum once again.”

It’s time to add another gem to Onslaught’s legacy, these adrenaline-charged metallers are ready to unleash their new beast: ‘Generation Antichrist‘!
