ONSLAUGHT Posts Cover Art And Track Listing For New Album, VIWednesday, 7th August 2013
British thrash legends ONSLAUGHT have revealed the cover art and track listing to their forthcoming sixth studio album, VI. The album will be released on September 20th via AFM Records and was mixed with ‘Thomas ‘Plec’ Johansson (TIAMAT, SCAR SYMMETRY) at the award winning Panic Room studios in Skara, Sweden.
Guitarist Nige Rockett is euphoric as never before: “Well, the new album VI is finally complete and ready to roll on September 20th and man it has exceeded all our expectations, by a long long way..!! We really pushed ourselves to the limits in making this record and I think that truly shines through in the final results. VI is the most brutal and technical album ONSLAUGHT has ever made no question, it’s old school, it’s contemporary and it’s fucking aggressive in the extreme, with a few big surprises thrown in for good measure..!
“We’ve gone about the whole album making process with a completely different approach and mindset this time around, ranging from the artwork (by Par Oloffson) through to the final mixes with Thomas Johansson, who I must single out for mention along with our drummer Michael Hourihan for really upping the ante in the ass kicking stakes..! We’re feeling kind of proud right now and pretty confident the fans are gonna dig it too..!!”

1. A New World Order
2. Chaos Is King
3. Fuel For My Fire
