Artillery & Onslaught Announce European Tour For July


Danish masters of the riff, Artillery, have announced a summer tour in support of UK Thrashers ONSLAUGHT. Artillery’s latest album, “Legions,” was released on November 26, 2013 via Metal Blade Records and is available now! Listen to “Chill My Bones (Burn My Flesh)” and watch the video for “Legions” below:

Artillery comments: “Artillery is very anxious to hit the road with Onslaught and Hatriot, to support the overwhelming reception of Legions. We can’t wait to play some of the new songs together with some of the old classics. Looking forward to meet the best and most dedicated melodic thrashers out there!”

Artillery was formed in Copenhagen in 1982, and released their debut album “Fear of Tomorrow”in 1985 and the follow-up, “Terror Squad,” in 1987. Afterwards, the band saw a turbulent time with line-up changes, but by 1990 the band released the much acclaimed “By Inheritance” record. Artillery released their final effort with singer Flemming Rønsdorf in 1999 called “B.A.C.K.”

Artillery has received a number of awesome reviews for ‘Legions’, not least from SonicAbuse who included it on their album of the year list. Read our full review here:

“Artillery are doing what they were surely born to do, namely hurling impressively intricate, ridiculously tight thrash anthems from every direction, they are still unstoppable.” Terrorizer Magazine

“one of the best thrash metal albums this year” Iron Fist Magazine

“The songwriting talent on display is formidable, and all the instruments turn potentially routine passages into extra appendages that work always in the band’s favor.”

“…this new album proves that they’re still fighting on, with no end to the war for thrash metal in sight.”
