Veteran British thrash metal quartet Onslaught continues the trend of seasoned bands coming out of the where are they now file only to throw down relevant headbanging material as heard on this troupe’s latest affair SOUNDS OF VIOLENCE. This 11-track offering supplies an aggressive array of smash everything in your path thrash metal prowess (“Rest in Pieces”) with the right balance of rapid fire rhythmic fury and volatile riff and seething vocal combinations akin to latter day Exodus or Kreator at the forefront of their assault (“Born for War”). Onslaught maintains a mauling pace with little derivation from the pummeling thrash metal paradigm this squad has ardently followed since the mid-80s, making this album a predictably angst-ridden excursion with enough meat on its bones to suppress the hunger of ardent fan’s heavy fix.
