Onslaught ‘THE FORCE’

AHEAD OF THEIR TERRORIZER-SPONSORED UK SHOWS, GUITARIST NIGE ROCKETT LOOKS BACK AT THE CREATION OF ONSLAUGHT’S WATERSHED ALBUM THAT, 30 YEARS LATER, IS STILL A CLASSIC THRASH BEAST FROM START TO FINISH WORDS: IAN GLASPER

“It’s quite amazing really; it’s something I would never have dreamt of when we started out,” begins Onslaught guitarist Nige Rockett, when pondering the fact that it’s been 30 long years since they recorded their watershed album, ‘The Force’, and his band are still out there, and still very much a (no pun intended) force to be reckoned with. “We have definitely developed a lot since then, but ‘The Force’ tracks are still very much at the core of our live show for two reasons. Firstly, if we didn’t play them we would be cheating the fans, and secondly, they really do stand up so well in the current Onslaught set. For me personally, ‘Let There Be Death’, ‘Metal Forces’ and ‘Fight With The Beast’ in particular are so enjoyable to play every night, I would actually say they are un-droppable!”

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are only a handful of bands that I absolutely love, have really made a massive impact in my life and, ultimately, don’t let me down when it comes to live shows, recordings or attitudes to life. The Dillinger Escape Plan are one of those bands and it’s an honour to have them grace the cover for the second time while I steer the good ship Terrorizer. I have fond memories of TDEP – from the first time I Interviewed them for another metal magazine in their early days, right through to the last show I recently saw of theirs at the Old Blue Last in London at the tail end of the Summer. Always faultless, it’s safe to say they are going out on a high and while few bands will ever step up to the plate like Dillinger do every night, their legacy and recorded output will last forever, and for that we should be thankful. Kevin Stewart-Panko first interviewed them for these sacred pages, so it was only right that he should interview them one final time. I hope you enjoy his (and the bands’) words and do crank out their new album at the same time – it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Until next month… Darren Sadler
