Candlelight Records to Reissue Early Year Onslaught Recordings; Band Forced to Cancel Five Dates in Germany

UK death metal/thrash legends Onslaught, following the successful ride off their latest album Killing Peace, will release their early catalog in North America through Candlelight Records.

Be on the lookout for reissues of The Force, Power From Hell and In Search of Sanity on March 11th.

Onslaught was also recently forced to cancel five dates in Germany with Ektomorf due to alleged breaches of contracts with Rockfalls Promotions. Vocalist Sy Keeler noted, "The organization behind the tour has again been nothing short of shambolic from day one. The problems started with transportation and equipment and ended with non payment of our fees and expenses. The Night Liner Company has not been paid and the tour is being kept afloat at this time by the Tour Managers' own personal finances. We had persevered with the difficulties for the first 9 shows but felt it was impossible for us to continue in the circumstances and have been forced to make this very difficult and sad decision..."

Onslaught is scheduled to play a slew of festivals this coming summer.
