Onslaught Checks In From Brazil

British thrash metal legends Onslaught has checked in from their first headlining tour of South America after finishing their shows in Brazil. The message reads as follows:

"Well here we are for our first time in Brazil, I've been looking forward to this for many years and what an eventful start we got off to...

"First show was in Manaus, a city in the middle of the Amazon jungle with no roads in or out, truly amazing. We arrive at the venue to be greeted by hordes of thrash metal maniacs hanging out around this, I must say gargantuan venue, its a really cool scene... I think within an hour we managed to get our photo taken with everyone there... ha ha ha ha.

"The equipment is not the best and it takes some huge compromises to get things together but with the help of William our sound tech, everything works and he gets a crushing front of house sound. The Force album seems to be order of the day, so we try to play it in its entirity, unfortunately our show is brought to a very abrupt end by the local Police (this is a big problem over here) and we are several songs short which was a huge disappointment at our first appearance here.

"Next morning before we leave for the next city, myself and Jeff take a walk down to the Amazon in 35 degree heat, its pretty spectacular stuff, real party atmosphere going on and this was at 9 AM on a Sunday morning, crazy shit... there was even vultures on the beach, it really is priceless stuff.

"Not enough time to really enjoy this real unusual city, but we had a great time aside from the show being shutdown.

"Next plane beckons... speak soon."
