The sixth album by thrashers Onslaught comes with the aptly titled VI. Yeah I know clever. The follow up to 2011's "Sounds Of Violence" is a short but sweet thrash outing.
Comin in at just under the forty minute mark with eight tracks (and an intro). The lyrical content is your typical war, anti religion, etc that permeates the genre. However there are stand out lyrical moments in tracks like "Chaos Is King" and "Children Of The Sand".
As far as the music goes, it's a very riff
driven album. While the music isn't the be all-end all of thrash, it flows rather well with the album. You'll definitely find yourself moving your head to the guitar/drum parts though.
The vocals on this record is what shines. Frontman Sy Keeler carries these songs with aggression and a groove. There's a certain fist pumping feel the chorus of these tracks. Especially the track " 66 'Fuckin'6". That song In particular surprised me because it isn't as cheesy as it sounds.
While this isn't an instant classic, it's still a very solid album. For fans of trash, this record will sit nice with your collection
