UK thrash metal band ONSLAUGHT announce new album, festival tour
UK Thrashers ONSLAUGHT who are celebrating their 30thAnniversary in 2013 have appropriately announced ‘Friday 13th September’ as the worldwide release date for their 6th studio album via AFM Records.
The follow up to 2011’s ‘Sounds of Violence’ album will be once again recorded / mixed / co-produced by ‘Jacob Hansen’ at ‘Hansen Studios’ in Denmark, with work commencing on May 18th..
Slaught guitarist Nige Rockett commented: “It’s awesome to be making another album with Jacob Hansen, there was never gonna be anyone else considered, simply because of the way Jacob works on a personal level and the incredible dynamics of his final mixes, we just know its gonna be totally immense…!
The writing is 90% complete and its sounding very very cool, I’m not gonna say its ‘louder faster heavier’ than anything we’ve ever done because that’s a little bit cliche these days, all I will say is that ‘it’s very Fresh, it’s Old School and its Ferocious’ the rest we’ll leave up to you guys to decide..!”
The band will also headline the first “Slaughterfest” across Europe in October, with German cult thrashers Exumer, M:pire of Evil ( Ex-venom Mantas and Tony Dolan) and Death Metal legends Master completing the bill.
Fans will have the opportunity to take part on Meet & Greet events on selected dates.
