Sounds of Violence songs Product Information
Sounds of Violence album for sale by Onslaught was released Dec 28, 2010 on the Spiritual Beast label. Although they were easily one of Britain's best ever thrash metal exports of the 1980s, Onslaught still failed to escape the clutches of the underground due to a succession of bad breaks, an inability to hold on to a reliable singer, and, of course, the sheer intractability of their aggressive sound, not to mention those pentagram-foisting album covers (not very popular with authority figures anywhere). ...See Full Description

||This is great !|
Onslaught, the reincarnation of the early 80's U.K. thrash band have come back FULL FORCE, first with the talk-up via the internet & their old web board, and the previous album, Killing Peace, and now Sounds of violence, WOW, these guys mean business, they smash any other comeback band with Thor's Hammer, with a few exceptions of other bands who have also come back to reap the rewards of the thrash revival. This cd is just stellar, fast, vicious, just angry music, THIS IS THRASH AT ITS BEST PEOPLE. If you like the 80's style thrash, you may be disappointed, as its not Sodom's Persecution Mania LP, but for what its worth, Onslaught have come back to take thrash to a whole new level!

There is no defense against the guitar duo of Nige Rockett and Andy Rosser-Davies. Onslaught have chewed up and spit out some guitarists over the years, but Sounds of Violence is Onslaught at their best. “Antitheist” is an example of how to play old school thrash. With echoes of Megadeth, “Antitheist” demonstrates how Rockett and Rosser-Davies play off of each other. The song “Bomber” is a pleasant surprise with a hair metal vibe that you’d actually want to hear. Here the guitars remind me of Skid Row’s “Youth Gone Wild” for some reason. Drum and bass by Steve Grice and Jeff Williams, respectively, are solid. The best percussion tracks are “Born for War”, “Code Black”, and “Rest In Pieces”. It is within these three tracks the secrets of thrash ass-kickery are held. Lyrically, Onslaught is on the same path as other anti-Christian bands from the 80s and 90s. They are still anti-religious, but thematically, they are now making more social and cultural commentary. Original thrash was meant to shock with demonic imagery. Onslaught have a broader agenda now and it includes politics, human behavior, and rocking the protective layer of skin off your face. I love that Onslaught have held it together so well after all these years. I know I haven’t. Sounds of Violence is easily Onslaught’s best album and a must-have for thrash-heads. So seriously, where’s the beef? (TNR)
