Back in the 80s they surely belonged to one of the most influential and also experimental bands of their genre. Let us be honest – Who does not remember a gem like 1986‘s “The Force”! After a long break of 13 years, ONSLAUGHT returned in 2005, due to the great demand of the fans and critics all over the world, with yet another stunning release entitled “Killing Peace” (2007). Now the time has come to give you thrash fans out there, what you have been waiting for. The band is recording a new record as we speak and it will see the light of day soon! This being said there is nothing more than to give this band a warm welcome here at AFM!
The band about the signing: ” WE’RE SO VERY STOKED TO BE JOINING THE ‘AFM RECORDS’ ROSTER, OUR DEAL WITH ‘CANDLELIGHT’ HAD EXPIRED AND AS ALWAYS ONSLAUGHT WERE LOOKING FOR A NEW CHALLENGE. THERE WERE SEVERAL LABELS INTERESTED IN SIGNING THE BAND, BUT ‘AFM’ SAID ALL THE RIGHT THINGS AND MADE ALL THE RIGHT MOVES SO IT WASN’T A HARD CHOICE. ALSO SEEING WHAT THE LABEL DID WITH THE LATEST ‘FEAR FACTORY’ ALBUM BACKED UP OUR DECISION. IT KINDA FEELS LIKE WHEN WE WERE SIGNED TO ‘MUSIC FOR NATIONS’ VERY PERSONAL AND VERY FRIENDLY ON EVERY LEVEL RIGHT UP TO THE LABEL OWNER… WE HAVE A REAL GOOD FEELING ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM RELEASE AND A VERY DISTINCTIVE VISION, AFM ARE RIGHT BEHIND THIS 110%, WE’RE GONNA MAKE A GREAT TEAM AND TOGETHER WE’RE GONNA DELIVER SOME KICK ASS NEW TUNES….”
