UK Thrash legends “Onslaught” are one of the most explosive and controversial Metal bands ever to come out of the UK..
Releasing 3 now legendary albums in the 80″s (Power From Hell / The Force / In Search of Sanity), the band marked it”s path to become a major influence for many Metal generations to follow.
Since reforming in 2005, the band have performed countless shows / tours all across the globe, earning themselves the reputation as one of the very best Live Acts in the scene today, with crushing performances at Wacken / Bang Your Head /Thrash Domination / 70000 Tons of Metal / Hammersonic / Hellfest / Brutal Assault & Bloodstock Festivals to name just a few..!!
