An Interview With Onslaught

It was a very exciting moment when, during last September’s THRASH MERCENARIES TOUR, we contacted Blaakyum, who were part of the tour, to ask them if they would be able to pass a few questions we prepared as an interview with Onslaught. But Blaakyum’s frontman, as well as their manager, proposed to do it as a video interview, instead of a written one, with Bassem Deaibess volunteering to ask the questions prepared on our behalf and to film the interview on his mobile phone.

An interview with Onslaught

Onslaught is a band that would “never compromise [their] artistic integrity in any way”. We got a lot of insights from Sy Keeler and Nige Rockett about the inside world of Onslaught. Covering many subjects starting with the then ongoing tour, Nige and Sy explained how important it is today for a band to tour and why. They also shared with us some funny, beautiful, and life-changing stories they have faced during their life on the road; some were weird though.

Talking about their composition and the band’s sound, Nige was surprised that some people are “anal” about what tuning the band can use for a thrash Metal song.

“when you look at Testament, Kreator, Overkill, ourselves, everybody is making some of the best music they ever created.” – Nige

The interview also covers the band’s influences, which start with Punk and end with Prog, the recording back in the day versus the recording procedures and costs of today, ending up with information about the upcoming releases. So enough with me blabbering about the interview, you can watch it below:

KAOTEON | ARE BACK!

Kaoteon is one of those bands whose shine never dims. Ok! That was a cliché, but it is true!

Imagine a band that hasn’t been active for years: no performances since 2009, a shy album release party in 2011, and some news on their page about progress in the album recording. Yet their name is, most of the times, brought up in every conversation about Lebanese Metal bands. Their legacy never faded and their fans are still as die-hard as they were during the band’s active years. Continue reading
