CD Reviews

Onslaught - 'In Search Of Sanity' (Blackened Records)
Mike Reed | USA | 07/16/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember this late '80's metal release, believe it featured former Grim Reaper vocalist / frontman Steve Grimmett (one of hell's true rejects - keep in mind he's on this Onslaught record only). Tunes here I got the most out of were the title track "In Search For Sanity", the in-your-face "Lightning War", their decent cover of AC/DC's anthem "Let There Be Rock" and "Welcome To Dying". Might draw in fans of Celtic Frost, Possessed, King Diamond and Cryptic Slaughter {have always loved that name}. Not bad at all."

"I have owned this disk since 1990, and I must say it's an excellent choice. Steve Grimmet(ex-Grim Reaper front man) is at some of his best here. Rob Trotman and Nige Rockett do some sweet guitar on this. The first "song" is not really a song at all, but 5+ minutes of sound effects. This kind of stuff you can play on Halloween to scare the kids. The rest of the disk is solid. Good fret work, solid timings, and some edge to those guitars. There are covers of AC/DC's Let there be Rock and Angel Witch's Confused(both done real well), but the center piece is the 12+ minute long epic Welcome to Dying. A song that I think is about someone on life support. Sheer metal offerings here.

Now, I have not heard the remaster. But on the original there was a mixing issue. The drums are entirely too loud. They drowned out most of the bass guitar and sits on top of the rest of the music a bit. I had my CD player running through an EQ for a while to bring the guitars back up to par, but in the end it didn't sound right that way. I got used to the mix eventually. Not really a bad thing, but slightly annoying, might be fixed on remaster."
