Its been twenty years since Bristol-based thrash act, Onslaught released any new material. With their fifth album, The Sounds of Violence out now on AFM Records and accompanying video for the title track, released today, can be seen on Metal Injection.
Vocalist Sy commented, “The Sound Of Violence‘ was inspired by the horrendous loss of over 150,000,000 souls throughout the 20th Century, instigated by religious tyranny and dictatorial madness of humankind. The lyrics echo the horrific realities of war and remarkable resistance endured by our fellow men and women which continues to this day. Wake up world; welcome to a land of devastating brutality where conflict is a part of everyday life. This is the sound of violence.”
Sounds Of Violence, the follow-up to 2007 Killing Peace was recorded in Denmark with well-known producer, Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Heaven Shall Burn)
