1.Damnation/Onslaught (Power from Hell)
4.Lord of Evil
6.Angels of Death
7.The Devil's Legion
8.Steel Meets Steel
I was turned on to these guys by the writings of Pushead in the mid 80s. It was then that I became interested in them because of their d.i.y. roots.
Before releasing this LP, they released a slew of demos dating back to 1983.
Onslaught played an early brand of death/black metal that was compared by many to Venom, only not as catchy, and a bit faster. The band was from the U.K., and helped to set a sort of the early trend in this style of music. This was the sound track to a lot of partying, and skateboarding for me.
