Fan-filmed video footage of British thrashers ONSLAUGHT performing a brand new song, "A Perfect Day To Die", on August 10 at the Bloodstock Open Air festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire, United Kingdom can be seen below.
Bloodstock Open Air marked the first live appearance of ONSLAUGHT's new lineup, featuring longstanding members Nige Rockett (guitar), Sy Keeler (vocals) and Jeff Williams (bass) alongside James Perry (drums) and Wayne Dorman (guitar).
Rockett commented: "The band is genuinely sounding more powerful and aggressively focused than ever before.
"James has been a great friend of the band for many years and is one hell of a drummer — a complete thrashing machine; so solid and lighting fast. Exactly the same applies to Wayne; he's the perfect fit for ONSLAUGHT — an awesome all-round guitarist; his lead playing is full-on 'metal', no bullshit, exactly what you would expect to hear in our music."
ONSLAUGHT's follow-up to 2013's "VI" album will be recorded during the coming months for a late 2018 release.
"Songs have been written, demo tracks recorded and the thrashing machine is racing forward at full throttle," the band said back in March. "This is shaping up to be ONSLAUGHT's most vicious and hard-hitting thrash metal attack yet!"
ONSLAUGHT released a concert CD/DVD, "Live At The Slaughterhouse", in February 2016 via AFM. The 13-song set captured two performances in the U.K. (Bristol and London) featuring the lineup of Keeler, Rockett, Williams, Leigh Chambers (guitar), and Mic Hourihan (drums).
ONSLAUGHT's sixth album, "VI", was released in September 2013 via AFM Records. The follow-up to 2011's "Sounds Of Violence" was mixed by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (TIAMAT, SCAR SYMMETRY) at Panic Room studios in Skara, Sweden.
