Vocalist Sy Keeler of the reformed lineup of the classic U.K. thrash outfit ONSLAUGHT has sent the following update to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:
"Following the ONSLAUGHT live set at the Halloween special, the Barfly, Birmingham this coming Monday, 30th October, Sy Keeler will be taking over the decks, and playing selections from the now-finished [new ONSLAUGHT album] 'Killing Peace'. This will be the first public airing of the Andy Sneap-produced opus. I'll be playing a few of the songs which aren't part of the live set.
"The final mix was completed this last week and we are blown away with Andy's work. It's been a pleasure to work with Andy (who has also, in the last month, recorded drum tracks for the new CHIMAIRA album, and is scheduled to work on the next MEGADETH release).
"Tickets for the Barfly gig on 30th are priced at £8 advance, with support from rising U.K. thrashers HEADLESS CROSS and SLAB."
"Killing Peace" was recorded at Backstage studio in Derbyshire, England with producer Sneap. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Destroyer of Worlds", "Pain", "Tested to Destruction", "Burn", "Shock and Awe", "Prayer for the Dead", "Twisted Jesus", and "Killing Peace". The band's current lineup includes Sy Keeler (vocals), Nige Rockett (guitars), Steve Grice (drums), James Hinder (bass) and the group's latest addition, guitarist Alan Jordan (ex-MIRROR MIRROR, FRANKENSTEIN).
ONSLAUGHT recorded three albums in the late 1980s — including "In Search of Sanity" — before calling it a day.
