Background
One of the forefathers of British thrash are veterans Onslaught, who've been plying their trade off and on since 1983 when they started out as a punk thrash crossover. Like most bands of that persuasion they soon diverted into heavy metal and their 1985 debut 'Power From Hell' was a crude but heavy thrash excursion with one of the first uses of the term 'death metal.' They continued into the early 90's with ex Grim Reaper vocalist Steve Grimmett at the helm, but disbanded in 1991 after going nowhere. They reformed in 2007 and this is their third album since then, with critical acclaim coming their way for their reinvigorated thrash tactics. Of the above lineup both Keeler and Rockett were in the 80's lineups, with the band having predictably gone through untold personnel changes over the years. Drummer Hourihan makes his first appearance, taking the place of Steve Grice who'd been a mainstay from the start in 1983.

In Summary
This isn't a total disaster, but it barely deserves the acclaim it's picked up either. As referenced earlier it sounds dated, something from two decades back that I might have devoured then but instead now sounds like a carbon copy of a thousand bands.
