Metal Blade records has issued the following update about the new album "The Onslaught" from Lazarus AD:
"Southeastern Wisconsin thrashers Lazarus A.D. have just released the cover art and track listing to their Metal Blade Records debut "The Onslaught," which will be released everywhere March 3rd 2009. The Onslaught was mixed by famed thrasher James Murphy of Testament and contains 10 tracks with a supreme level of creativity and musicianship. Have no doubt that LAZARUS AD is a thrash band, but are not simply a throwback to the 80s bay area sound. They breathe a breath of fresh air into modern thrash with intelligent and memorable riffs, thrash breakdowns, mid-tempo grooves, and high-flying solos."
The cover art can be viewed at Lazarus A.D.s official Myspace page.
Track listing for The Onslaught:
1. Last Breath
2. Thou Shall Not Fear
3. Damnation for the Weak
4. Absolute Power
8. Forged In Blood
9. Every Word Unheard
10. Who I Really Am
Fresh from being mixed and mastered by James Murphy himself, Lazarus A.D. and Metal Blade Records have unveiled the first track from the band's upcoming debut, "The Onslaught." "Thou Shall Not Fear" is currently available for fans to hear on the band's MySpace page.

Metal Blade Records recently announced the signing of Kenosha, WI's Lazarus A.D. Originally known simply as Lazarus, the band has been pummeling audiences with their brand of modern thrash since the spring of 2005.
In January of 2007, the band recorded "The Onslaught" with Chris Djuricic (Soil, November's Doom, Michael Angelo Batio) at Studio One. James Murphy (ex-Death, Testament) handled mastering duties and is now re-mixing the album for its worldwide release via Metal Blade Records.
The band commented on the signing:
"We are extremely stoked about being a part of the Metal Blade family. It is a great home for us, and we know together we are going to accomplish everything we have set out to do and so much more. When the record is released, I don't think we are gonna see home much, we plan to tour for pretty much the rest of our natural lives!"
Mike Faley of Metal Blade Records commented on the band and signing:
"With the growing number of young aggressive thrash bands rising up across America, we were struck down by the sheer brutality and innovative sound of Lazarus A.D. We brought James Murphy onboard to mix the new album as Metal Blade gets ready to unleash the onslaught that is Lazarus in early 2009."
