ONSLAUGHT: More 'The Night Of British Thrash' Details Revealed

Vocalist Sy Keeler of the reformed classic British thrash outfit ONSLAUGHT has sent the following message to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"ONSLAUGHT will be appearing at Bradford Rio's [in Bradford, England], Saturday June 3 as co-headliners with XENTRIX, with current Thrash 'til Death tour acts EVILE, PITIFUL REIGN and HEADLESS CROSS completing the line up. The gig was previously billed as being headlined by TESTAMENT, with ONSLAUGHT and XENTRIX as special guests, but TESTAMENT have now postponed the British leg of their tour until July, Bradford Rio's promoters asked if ONSLAUGHT and XENTRIX would step up to save the day, to which request both bands agreed to immediately. Saturday June 3 will now be 'The Night Of British Thrash'. Tickets are £10 advance. Those who have purchased tickets to see TESTAMENT will be able to use the tickets to get entry and get a drink at the bar. See www.bradfordrio.com for full details. Reliable sources say this may be the last chance to see XENTRIX."

ONSLAUGHT will play the Sweden Rock festival on June 10 and the Lorca Rock festival on June 17 before entering the studio the first week of July to begin recording their fourth CD, "Killing Peace", tentatively due in September via an as-yet-undisclosed label. The band's current lineup includes Sy Keeler (vocals), Nige Rockett (guitars), Steve Grice (drums), James Hinder (bass) and the group's latest addition, guitarist Alan Jordan (ex-MIRROR MIRROR, FRANKENSTEIN). Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Destroyer of Worlds", "Pain", "Tested to Destruction", "Burn", "Shock and Awe", "Prayer for the Dead", "Twisted Jesus", and "Killing Peace".

ONSLAUGHT recorded three albums in the late 1980s — including the underrated "In Search of Sanity" (1989, Polydor), featuring ex-GRIM REAPER frontman Steve Grimmett — before calling it a day.
