"Killing Peace" (Candlelight; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

After being on the shelf for nearly fifteen years, British thrash titans Onslaught have returned with full force on "Killing Peace." 

This nine track release is a thrash-tastic throwback, harkening the days when Testament and Overkill ruled the roost. Sharing similarities with acts like Kreator and Destruction, this quintet dusts off the old tricks and polishes up the old machinery for another neck-snapping go-round on cuts like "Shock 'n Awe" and the Lamb of God-sounding "Burn."

Sure to satisfy those that feel the need for speed, Onslaught's righteous thrash metal demonstrates these Brits still have some gas left in the tank.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
