Bristol, UK's Onslaught originally started out as a hardcore punk band in the early 80's before changing over to the thrash genre for which they are well known. Following their "In Search Of Sanity" release with Steve Grimmett (vocalist - Grim Reaper), Onslaught parted ways in 1991 and remained dormant until reuniting in 2004 with Sy Keeler back on vocals. The current incarnation has recorded three albums with the latest one, "VI", released in September 2013. Be on the lookout for a new live DVD that will be released in time for Xmas 2014 featuring shows from the Thrash Invasion Tour.
Artillery emerged from Denmark in 1982 to become one of Europe's earliest vanguards of thrash metal armed with the guitar duo attack of the Stützer brothers along with the dynamic vocals of Flemming Rønsdorf. Going their separate ways after four classic albums in 1991, Artillery briefly reunited at the end of the 90's before taking another hiatus and returning once more in 2007 with a new line-up to release "When Death Comes" in 2009. Four years later after an American tour, Josua Madsen and Michael Bastholm Dahl were added on drums and vocals. Reenergized, Artillery released their Metal Blade debut, "Legions," in November 2013.
Not to be confused with others by the same name, this Striker hails from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and has been unleashing their staple of heavy power metal to the masses since 2007 - when they're not drinking beer and breaking things during their downtime. With two full-lengths behind them, Striker is set to release their third album, "City Of Gold," on September 9th in USA/Canada.
