Good God I wish I was going to this. A friend of mine asked me if I want to go but I can only just get the money for the Overkill/Exodus show on the 20th. Would have been great to have seen Onslaught, Testament, Exodus and Overkill in a twenty four hour period!

I haven't seen either before but I saw Testament at Graspop last year and I've seen Onslaught four times before. In fact I'm wearing the Onslaught shirt Steve Grice gave to me now! God I love Onslaught lol. I've seen Kreator and Destruction before too but not on the same bill. In fact when I saw Destruction, Onslaught were the special guests. Absolutely crazy. And I saw Kreator in 2007 with Celtic Frost. You will not be disapointed!

Onslaught is a great band too dude. I only own their "Power From Hell" album. Steve Grice is a great drummer! Have you heard of Sacrilege?...they were a British Crust Punk/Thrash band from the mid 80's.

The name rings a bell but I don't think I've heard them. I'll have to check them out. I strongly recomend Onslaught's second album, "The Force". That's a thrash metal masterpiece. And their last album, "Killing Peace" was awesome too.

I'll see if I can get a hold of that album. Well if you're interested in Sacrilege, make sure to check out their first album. That's their best one imo. Their second release is great too but the 3rd one is pure Doom Metal.
