Metal Hall of Fame at Maryland Deathfest
British Thrash Metal pioneers Onslaught received their induction to the 'Metal Hall of Fame' during their recent on-stage performance at Maryland Deathfest. (USA)
'Metal Hall of Fame' President/CEO Pat Gesualdo comments. "Thrash Metal is a crucial part of the entire spectrum of Heavy Metal, and also a huge foundation for the Metal Hall of Fame. We are very proud to have Onslaught represent this genre that we all love so much.
" Nige Rockett comments: We are so honoured to receive this amazing recognition from the Metal Hall of Fame, it's been an incredible journey for this band and to receive this award in our 40th Anniversary year is really the icing on the cake...
This is a great day for Onslaught a great day for 'Thrash Metal' and a great day for the 'UK Metal scene'. 'Onslaught' is in a very very cool place right now and I think it only right that we should also give an honourable mention to Messers Sy Keeler and Steve Grice for their immense contributions in helping us achieve this great accolade.
This one is for the fans..!
