ONSLAUGHT will become the first international thrash metal act to play in Lebanon on June 10.
The band's appearance at The Station venue in Beirut will be a special climax to "The Force 30th Anniversary" world tour, which kicked off in November 2016 with dates in United Kingdom and Ireland.
Nige Rockett: "This is something really special for us and a huge honor for ONSLAUGHT to be invited to perform in Lebanon. We have no idea what to expect, but I know it's gonna be another crazy, amazing adventure."
Having recently returned from the hugely successful Latin America leg of the tour, where the band played nineteen shows in nineteen days across eleven countries, the band next head to Russia for two shows in St. Petersburg (Backstage club on March 17) and Moscow (Brooklyn Hall on March 18).
While in Brazil, ONSLAUGHT recorded a brand-new 360-degree, interactive promo video of a pre-tour rehearsal at Tellus Studios in Rio De Janiero.
Metalville Records has released a Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD) tribute album called "Snaggletooth: A Tribute To Lemmy".
This is not just a classic tribute record — bands like OVERKILL, DESTRUCTION, MONSTER MAGNET, UGLY KID JOE, MONSTER MAGNET and ONSLAUGHT are playing their favorite songs. The master himself, Lemmy, is on this record with three tracks — a fine version of one of the greatest QUEEN songs, "Tie Your Mother Down"; "Love Me Forever", a duet with Doro Pesch; and a great rare track, "Rock City Night", that he did with Richard Kruspe from RAMMSTEIN. The tribute also includes exclusive new songs, "Killed By Death" by German rockers KÄRBHOLZ, and "Burner", performed by German thrash heroes PERZONAL WAR. BLACK EXPLOSION from Sweden closes out this extraordinary compilation with "Location 9", inspired by early HAWKWIND days.

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday last Christmas Eve (December 24), learned two days later that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, at his home in Los Angeles.
The MOTÖRHEAD frontman had dealt with several health issues over the past few years, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking and Jack Daniels habits.
The band canceled a number of shows last year, although they did manage to complete one final European tour on December 11, 2015.
In a 2015 interview with Kerrang! magazine, Lemmy was asked how it makes him feel when people call him a legend. He responded: "As long as they don't believe it, that's alright." He continued: "Who wouldn’t want a hero somewhere in their lives? And it might as well be me, 'cause I don't take the piss out of them for it, and I don't laugh at them because of it." But he added, "I'm not a legend. I never thought of myself as being special in particular. Maybe I make brilliant music, but that's about it."

ONSLAUGHT guitarist Nige Rockett comments: "We are well and truly stoked to announce our upcoming tour of the U.K. and Ireland this autumn.
"By the time we hit the road in November, it will be well over two and a half years since we did the last run. We feel the time is now right to bring things home once again.
"I'm sure the fans are gonna be real hungry for these shows. The demand for 'The Force' set has been incredible and with this awesome 'best of British' line up that's been put together, it all points to some amazing old-school nights in loud, hot, sweaty clubs up and down the country. Everything is gonna be stripped back and brutal, just as thrash metal should be!"
