Onslaught Guitarist Nige Rockett Looks Back On "The Force," Discusses New Album And More

2016 marked the thirtieth anniversary of arguably the best album in the history of British thrash metal, "The Force," by the group who many consider to be the greatest band in British thrash metal, Onslaught. To celebrate this milestone, the band embarked on a lengthy tour, performing the album in full. When they rolled back in to their home city of Bristol last year, I was fortunate enough not just to witness a phenomenal performance (see review here,) but also to speak with Onslaught co-founder and guitarist, Nige Rockett. In the video below, I talk with Nige about the band's live reputation, hearing rare songs and what we can expect from their forthcoming seventh studio album.

I think it was the sixth time I've seen them and they've been nothing short of awesome each time. Nige was a very relaxed guy. Sy Keeler is very friendly too.
