'Live Damnation' is the only official live album released by thrash metal pioneers ONSLAUGHT. Recorded at Damnation Festival, Leeds in 2008, this album serves as a great 'best of' compilation. The performance in question is Onslaught at the very top of their reinvigorated game, and captures that staggering, all-too-brief set with perfect clarity.
Onslaught are a British thrash metal band from Bristol, England, active from 1982 to 1991 and again since 2005. The band initially drew influence from US and British hardcore punk bands such as Discharge and The Exploited, and then adopted a straightforward thrash metal sound. They have been recognised as pioneers of the British thrash metal scene, and have been referred to as one of the country's so-called "big four", along with Sabbat, Xentrix and Acid Reign.
