UK thrashers ONSLAUGHT have announced September 13, 2013 as the worldwide release date for their sixth studio album.
The follow-up to 2011's Sounds Of Violence will once again be recorded, mixed and co-produced by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, Denmark. Recording sessions are set to commence on May 18 and the album will be released via AFM Records.
Commented Onslaught guitarist Nige Rockett: "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 it's gonna be totally immense.
The writing is 90% complete and it's sounding very, very cool. I'm not gonna say it's 'louder, faster, heavier’ than anything we've ever done because that's a little bit cliché these days. All I will say is that it's very fresh, it's old school and it's ferocious. The rest we'll leave up to you guys to decide."
Onslaught will headline the first SLAUGHTERFEST across Europe in October, with German cult thrashers EXUMER, M-PIRE OF EVIL and death metal legends MASTER completing the bill.
Fans will have the opportunity to take part in meet-and-greet events on selected dates.
