Onslaught Guitarist Nige Rockett Posts New Album Update

Nige Rockett, guitarist and co-founder of British thrash metal veterans Onslaught has posted a message online updating fans on the status of the bands forthcoming fifth studio album. The posting reads as follows:

"Yes we have an album title. Yes we have a release date. Yes we have a producer. Yes we have studio time booked and yes we have a new. Hahahahaha not telling ya.

"It's certainly not gonna be Killing Peace 2 that's for sure. It's old school, It's contemporary, its Onslaught. It's gonna be faster at times, definitely heavier with some songs having their more intricate moments, but not too intricate, cuz that means compromising the violence which this album is really gonna be all about: pure unadulterated musical violence.

"We're gonna be using several different guitar tunings to add some sonic variety and lots of truly stunning solos coming your way from Mr Rosser-Davies. He's on fire at the moment and being pushed to the limits in terms of creativity and originality.

"No, Andy Sneap will not be producing the new album, but we have found another perfect partner to work with us this time around. He's a huge Onslaught fan and will definitely deliver the crushing brutality we are looking for on production front.

"Once again Onslaught will deliver a very different sounding album to its predecessor. There will not be 11/12 tracks on the record, its not something Onslaught do. We have always preferred quality over quantity every time, no fillers, all killers here. But you will more than get VFM (Violence For Money) guaranteed."
