'Onslaught' have confirmed 'Dave Garnett' as their
new vocalist and replacement for the recently departed 'Sy Keeler'
('Garnett' has already appeared onstage with 'Onslaught'
deputising for 'Keeler' at 'The House of Metal' Festival in Umea,
Sweden earlier this year.)
'Onslaught' guitarist Nige Rockett comments:
Obviously it was a huge blow for us losing Sy, but in 'Dave Garnett'
we have found an incredible talent who has a great deal of
experience both on the stage and in the studio.
The new 'Onslaught' album is without question our most raw and
aggressive record to date, there's a lot of our early influences
shining thru and 'Dave' has more than risen to the challenge in
delivering some pure 'Thrash Metal' vocals.
'Dave Garnett' comments:
Naturally like everyone I was gutted to hear about the departure of
'Sy Keeler'. 'Onslaughts' music and 'Sy's' vocal style has been an
influence of mine for many years, so it was a great honour for me
to be asked by the band to fill these very BIG shoes.
As the new voice of 'Onslaught' I want to honour 'Sy' for his
amazing performances over the years, while at the same time as
bringing a new sound and energy to the band.
With a new album set for release and so many live shows / festivals
in the works, I will be extremely excited to step out on to the stage
with great anticipation and give the fans what they deserve!!!
It is with great sadness to announce that 'Sy Keeler' will be
leaving his role as vocalist of 'Onslaught'.
Due to the nature of the modern day music industry some
things simply aren't sustainable year after year and Sy has
now taken a different full time career path.
We would like to wish Sy and his family all the very best on this
new journey through life and give him huge thanks for his
immense vocal performances in the band over the years.
We've shared so many great experiences, made some very
cool records and played some really amazing shows across the
globe, unfortunately nothing lasts forever and for us as a band
what doesn't kill us will once again make us stronger.
Onslaught are currently finalising work on their as yet untitled
new album in follow up to the critically acclaimed release 'VI'.
