Onslaught Covers Bömber

OK... this is kick a$$! Onslaught, the thrash metal legends from Bristol, England have released a cover of Motörhead's 'Bomber' prior to unveiling their forthcoming CD/album (number five), 'Sounds Of Violence'.

The single will also include the title track from the new CD/album 'Sounds Of Violence'.

Lead guitarist Nige Rockett was recently interviewed by Blabbermouth. Rockett was quoted as saying "Motörhead have always been a huge influence on Onslaught".

Rockett added "We've given it a pretty aggressive Onslaught slant and thrashed it up little, but still very much retaining the original identity of the song".

To spice things up a bit and make things a little more interesting, the band added two very special guests to sit in on the recording.

Yup, Phil Campbell was asked to add his unique sound to the mix and laid down a pretty awesome riff for the new tune!

Sodom lead singer Tom Angelripper shared the vocal duties with Onslaught's Sy  Keeler. Rockett says "He laid down some great f#cking vocals, as you will hear, and it's really added something special to the final result."

'Sounds Of Violence' is set to be released in the U.K. 01/28/2011 and in North America 02/08/2011.

They just posted the 'Bomber' video and it features Phil and Angelripper tearing it up. Love what Phil has to say about his payment for his involvement in the song.

Hats off to the boys, that cover is worth adding to any metal collection if I say so myself... and I say so, MOFO!
