Onslaught Reveals New Album, "Sounds Of Violence" Tracklisting, Plans To Donate Single Proceeds To Charity

British thrash metal veterans Onslaught has revealed the tracklisting for their forthcoming fifth studio album, "Sounds Of Violence." You can check it out below. The album will be released through AFM Records on January 28th in Europe and February 8th in North America. A special single from the album is to be released for digital download on December 17th, which will feature a cover of the Motorhead classic, "Bomber," as well as the title track from the new album. Money made from the single will go to the Help The Heroes charity, which helps wounded soldiers who are returning from the Middle East.

Speaking on the decision, guitarist and founder Nige Rockett stated: "The demand and advance pre-orders for the 'Bomber' / 'The Sound of Violence' single have been so totally amazing that we have decided that all our profits from this release should be well worthwhile donating to a very special charity, namely Help For Heroes.

"As many of you will have read previously, there is a Battalion fighting out in Afghanistan that use Onslaught as their official combat call sign. Over the past months we have been in regular communication and feel extremely proud of these guys and all the other brave troops that put their lives on the line every day to try and make this world a safer place to live in... it was definitely an easy choice of charity for us to make."

"Help For Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The message of the charity is simple: We are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. We believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life. We may not be able to prevent our soldiers from being wounded, but together we can help them get better."

The tracklisting for the album is as follows:

"Into The Abyss" (intro)
"Born For War"
"The Sound Of Violence"
"Code Black"
"Rest In Pieces"
"End Of The Storm" (outro)
"Bomber" (Motorhead cover)
