Please welcome one of the most important and influential bands of the last decade for the first time at Summer Breeze! Hard, harder, Hatebreed!"

The currently announced lineup is as follows: Arch Enemy, Tyr, Kvelertak, Suicidal Tendencies, Bolt Thrower, J.B.O., Witchery, Farmer Boys, Kalmah, Hail of Bullets, Corvus Corax, Hammerfall, Skeletonwitch, Excrementory Grindfuckers, Kampfar, Hayseed Dixie, Turisas, Marduk, Sonic Syndicate, Decapitated, Moonsorrow, Sodom, and Hatebreed.

Onslaught Reveals New Single Guests

In a recent update, Onslaught founder and guitarist Nige Rockett revealed that the band's forthcoming new single release, "The Sound Of Violence/Bomber" will feature guest appearances from Sodom frontman Tom Angelripper and Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell. The message reads as follows:

"We're really stoked to finally be getting some new material out in the public domain, its been such a long time since the Killing Peace album and this will be a great little sampler for the upcoming album release in early 2011. The Sound Of Violence' track is a cool representation of things to come, its got a real old school Onslaught feel but its very contemporary at the same time. A real angry no nonsense thrasher.

"Regarding the 'Bomber' cover: "Motörhead have always been a huge influence on Onslaught and our relationship goes back a long long way. So when we decided to have some fun and do a cover song in the studio, this track immediately sprang to mind, especially as its relative to the theme of the new album. We've given it a pretty aggressive Onslaught slant and thrashed it up little, but still very much retaining the original identity of the song. To make things a little more interesting, we thought we would like to add some very special guests into the mix. We asked Phil (Campbell) if he would like to come and thrash out with us and play some guitar on the track - the answer was an undoubted 'Yes'. Things we're sounding pretty cool in rehearsal but just missing that tiny piece of magic/the icing on the cake. Then Phil came in and played that awesome riff in his style and everything just fell right into place.

"We also had the idea that our friend Tom Angelripper (Sodom) would sound perfect sharing the vocal duties with our own Mr Keeler, we knew Tom Was in the studio recording the new Sodom record so the timing was perfect. We sent over the tracks and Tom did the rest, he laid down some great fucking vocals as you will hear and its really added something special to the final result.

"As you can tell really I'm buzzing about all this... its an exciting time to be in Onslaught right now." More...
