New Album "VI" Detailed By Onslaught

Less than a day after the artwork and title hit the web, Onslaught provided full details on the forthcoming new LP "VI." The album drops on September 23rd via AFM Records.

Recorded by the band at the band's own facility in Wales, "VI" was mixed by Thomas 'Plec' Johansson and is the first album to feature new drummer Michael Hourihan in all his glory. The album artwork was created by Par Oloffson, who has done many a cover for bands like Immortal and Immolation. The album is augmented by a new version of "Shellshock", (originally released on the 1989 album "In Search Of Sanity").

"We really pushed ourselves to the limits in making this record," says guitarist Nige Rockett..., "and I think that truly shines through in the final results. 'VI' is the most brutal and technical album Onslaught has ever made; no question, it's ‘Old School, but it's contemporary and it's fucking aggressive in the extreme, with a few big surprises thrown in for good measure..! We’ve gone about the whole album making process with a completely different approach and mind set this time, ranging from the artwork (by Par Oloffson) through to the final mixes with Thomas ‘Plec’ Johansson, who I must single out for mention along with our drummer Michael Hourihan; he was really upping the ante in the ass kicking stakes! We’re feeling kinda proud right now and pretty confident the fans are gonna dig it too!"

The track listing for the album is:

1. A New World Order
2. Chaos Is King
3. Fuel For My Fire
4. Children Of The Sand
5. Slaughterize
6. 6 6 'Fuckin' 6
7. Cruci-Fiction
8. Dead Man Walking
9. Enemy Of My Enemy
10. Shellshock (Bonus Track)
