Originally released in 2007, The Onslaught is so far the metal re-release of the year. Limited to only 1,000 copies first time round, this release should be the big break thrash metallers Lazarus A.D. surely deserve.
Judging by their motto of “Thrash or die”, the band chose to thrash – with force. The album title itself is exactly what happens to your senses from the carnage of blast beats and snarls emanating from your speakers. Sure the album isn’t 100% gold but no true thrash albums are, Lazarus A.D. though have given it a good go.
