Artist: Onslaught
Album: The Force
Genre: Thrash
Year: 1986
Origin: U.K.
Label: Under One Flag
Sounds Like: Epic Thrash


Coming from a skullcrushing crust punk sound in their early music, Onslaught’s The Force is a refined, epic, thrash, masterpiece.Onslaught, much like Sacrilege, started off as a hardcore/crusty punk band and evolved into a brilliant thrash band. Unlike their debut album Power From Hell (a very under rated and ripped off constantly album) which was a raw crusty thrash album, Onslaught sewed together elements of the bay area thrash scene and Iron Maiden stylised epic tales of fighting demonic beasts and the mighty forces of metal creating the masterpiece of an album called The Force. There is nothing short of epic on this album. 7 minute riff wars which detail the apocalypse and the mortals that were cursed to fight with the beast!

Thrash from the U.K. has always been a powerful sound. The Force further drives that statement home. The awesome duelling guitars that Onslaught brings on The Force are very signature to the sound of this album. Like I said earlier, each song is like a 7 minute riff war with pounding drums and driving bass. Sy Keeler’s vocals are very dynamic as well ranging from a graspy thrash drawl to a high pitch scream at the drop of a dime.

The most epic track on this album is “Fight With The Beast”

Bearing the mark of a demon from hell the dragon is cast onto the earth
Seeking revenge on the woman of man Satanus unleashes his wrath
Angels of death are the allies of hate the jackals destroying the cross

Fighting with fire the dragon attacks
Burning the cross and unleashing the powers of hell
Cursed are the mortals who dare to fight with the beast

Demons of hell bear the mark of the beast the sons of the dragon are born
Summoned to earth armageddon is here to slaughter the christian hordes
Destroying the temples Jehova has lost the nazarene will fester in hell

Fighting with fire the dragon attacks
Burning the cross and unleashing the powers of hell
Cursed are the mortals who dare to fight with the beast

A wrathful attack upon the christian faith the legions of Satan make war
Replacing the cross with the mark of the beast the kingdoms of Jesu have fell
Demons of hell armageddon is here preventing the coming of christ
relinquish your god now that satan is king the nazarene will never arise

Bearing the mark of a demon from hell the dragon is cast onto earth
Seeking revenge on the woman of man Satanus unleashes his wrath
Angels of death are the allies of hate the jackals destroying the cross

Fighting with fire the dragon attacks
Burning the cross and unleashing the powers of hell
Cursed are the mortals who dare to fight with the beast

That my friends is some imagery!

Onslaught’s The Force is an exciting album that all thrash fans need to hear so check it out!
