ONSLAUGHT Guitarist Interviewed On Greece's 'Metal Twilight Zone' Radio Show (Audio)

Greece's "Metal Twilight Zone" radio show conducted an interview with guitarist Nige Rockett of British thrashers ONSLAUGHT when the band played at the Eightball Club in Thessaloniki, Greece on October 21. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

ONSLAUGHT's recent tour saw the band performing its 1986 album, "The Force", in its entirety. The band also recorded a new version of its classic song "Metal Forces", for inclusion as a bonus track on the re-release of the band's 1986 album, "The Force", available on AFM Records. The set contains revised artwork and some sleeve notes written by Rockett.

ONSLAUGHT is tentatively scheduled to enter the studio at the end of the year to record its new album for a spring release via AFM Records.

The band's fifth album, "Sounds Of Violence", was released in January 2011 via AFM Records.

In a recent interview with Über Röck, Nige stated about the band's new material. "It's musically written now, but me and Andy [Rosser-Davies] just sit there sometimes and think, where the fuck did that come from or how did we write that? I don't know. The gap from this one to 'Sounds Of Violence' is the gap from 'Sounds Of Violence' to 'Killing Peace', I think. The new album's more extreme, it's more aggressive, it's heavier than 'Sounds Of Violence' was."

ONSLAUGHT recruited Michael Hourihan (EXTREME NOISE TERROR, DESECRATION) to play the drums following last year's departure of Steve Grice.
