Onslaught Reveals New Drummer

British thrash metal veterans Onslaught have confirmed that Desecration drummer Mic Hourihan, (also formerly of Extreme Noise Terror,) has joined the band on a permanent basis, replacing founding member Steve Grice, who left the band in March of this year, shortly after the release of the groups fifth studio album, "Sounds Of Violence." Despite joining Onslaught, Hourihan will continue to be a member of Desecration.

Onslaught bassist Jeff Williams comments: "I have to say I am so fucking happy to have Mic playing full time in Onslaught. Not only is he a really cool guy and a real pleasure to spend time with, but also without doubt the finest drummer that I have ever had the pleasure to play along side, everyone who came along to the Scream For Violence European, UK, Ireland or South American tours and saw Mic in action will certainly testify to this, the guy is a fucking machine! The Onslaught lineup is so powerful, focused and harmonious right now and the new album is going to completely fucking destroy! Bring it on!"

Mic Hourihan comments: "Its such a pleasure to be part of Onslaught, I am so looking forward to making the next record and of course all the touring that comes with being in such a great band!"

Extreme Noise Terror Frontman Found Dead

Phil Vane, one of the two vocalists of British crust punk/grindcore legends Extreme Noise Terror, has been found dead in his home. He was 46 years old. No cause of death has yet been revealed. A short statement from the band reads as follows:

"The rumors are true - we're sorry to announce that Phil (Vane) passed away recently. The band will make a full statement soon, but for now we need to take the time to come to terms with this terrible loss."

Phil Vane was one of the two vocalists of Extreme Noise Terror since the group's inception in 1985 along with singer Dean Jones and spent a brief period in the 1990's as the vocalist of fellow British grinders Napalm Death. For more information on Vane and Extreme Noise Terror, please check out last month's Sunday Old School article about the band.

Sunday Old School: Extreme Noise Terror

Recently, the English county of Suffolk was given a shock when Cradle Of Filth frontman, Dani Filth, who hails from Ipswich town, was voted the county’s greatest cultural icon. But many fans of extreme metal and punk who have been around for a while would perhaps instead prefer this title to go to Extreme Noise Terror, one of the most influential grindcore and crust punk bands of all time. The group formed in 1985, also in the town of Ipswich and were notable for being one of the few bands that utilised the use of two vocalists, being inspired in this angle by Antisect. Before long, the band signed with Manic Ears Records and released a split LP with Chaos UK entitled, "Radioactive Earslaughter." Around this time, the band were being grouped with another bunch of British bands, including Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower, under an ever changing label, eventually becoming known as grindcore, though the band expressed discomfort with the term.

After releasing the split LP with Chaos UK, the band attracted the attention of legendary DJ John Peel, who offered them a prestigious "Peel Session" slot, which in turn allowed ENT to record their debut full length album, ”A Holocaust In Your Head,” which has since become one of the most acclaimed grindcore albums in history. The band continued to garner interest from strange places, not least when they were contacted by Bill Drummond of legendary acid house band, The KLF. Drummond asked Extreme Noise Terror to re-record the KLF song, "3 A.M. Eternal," with the intention of getting the band television time on the famous Top of the Pops program. Despite the good performance of the single, the BBC denied the band an appearance on the show, fearing the song wasn’t appropriate for broadcast, which led to The KLF boycotting the program. However, the two groups did team up for a performance at the 1992 BRIT Awards, which made national news when the performance culminated in a machine gun being fired into the crowd.

Following this controversy, Extreme Noise Terror continued to tour wherever they could, going through a number of lineup changes in the process. Eventually, the band signed a new deal with Earache Records, re-recording a wealth of old material for the, “Retro-bution” release. Not long after however, the band faced one of their biggest challenges when vocalist Phil Vane left the band, but the band was helped when Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway, who had just been fired from his band, decided to join ENT. Funnily enough, Phil Vane became the new singer for Napalm Death, although he would never record an album with them. Now with Greenway in tow, the band got to work on a new studio album, resulting in, "Damage 381." The album saw the band enter a more death metal orientated area, incorporating blast beats and more screams. Following the release of the album however, Greenway returned to Napalm Death and Vane eventually came back to ENT. Since then, the band has continued to change members, with vocalist Dean Jones remaining the only constant member, as Vane left again in 1999, only to return in 2006. The band continue to tour and record new material, often in the form of split EPs. More...

Earache To Release 3CD Grindcore Collection

Earache Records is set to release a special 118-track, 3-CD compilation called Grind Madness At The BBC (The Earache Peel Sessions), featuring some of the first ever grindcore recordings. The tracks are all taken from the legendary John Peel's early BBC radio sessions, which were recorded at the Maida Vale studios in London, UK between 1987 and 1990, and mark a historic moment in the world of extreme music.

John Peel was a huge supporter of the label and it's extreme bands, offering the likes of HERESY and NAPALM DEATH the chance to lay down some tracks for his national UK radio show.

The three-disc set features 118 tracks of classic recordings from Napalm Death, Carcass, BOLT THROWER, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, GODFLESH, Heresy, UNSEEN TERROR and INTENSE DEGREE, combining to a total running time of over three and a half hours.

Extreme Noise Terror Offer New Album Update

EXTREME NOISE TERROR have posted the following update:

“After many delays due to a busy schedule & much last minute ‘fine tuning,’ work is finally underway on the new album! It is being recorded at the infamous Springvale Studio in Ipswich and we hope to have it finished by late December. Bass guitar is being recorded this week and then all that will be left to do will be vocals and lead guitar.

Already shaping up to be a total holocaust of a recording this new offering sees ENT get back to basics with 16 new tracks of ear splitting hardcore punk in the vein of their earlier offerings circa ‘Phonophobia’ and ‘A Holocaust In Your Head.’

Due to be released on Osmose Productions, no release date is set but we’re hoping it will see the light of day around April 2008.”
