ONSLAUGHT: Better Than SLAYER At Their Best?

Drummer Steve Grice of the reformed lineup of the classic U.K. thrash outfit ONSLAUGHT has sent the following update to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"ONSLAUGHT have now completed the recording of their new studio album 'Killing Peace', which is due for release in February [via Candlelight Records]. The album is an uncompromising mixture of true thrash tunes which will grab you by the throat.

"On a recent airing by Terrorizer's Ian Glasper, the album was described as 'better than SLAYER at their best.' The record-buying thrash fans will be able to judge that themselves in February."

Commented Grice: "We don't feel is if we are competing against the likes of SLAYER etc. but we are sure giving these guys a run for their money."

"Killing Peace" is being recorded at Backstage studio in Derbyshire, England with producer Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, NEVERMORE, MACHINE HEAD, EXODUS). Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Destroyer of Worlds", "Pain", "Tested to Destruction", "Burn", "Shock and Awe", "Prayer for the Dead", "Twisted Jesus", and "Killing Peace". 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).

ONSLAUGHT recorded three albums in the late 1980s — including "In Search of Sanity" — before calling it a day.
