British thrash metal veterans Onslaught have confirmed that Desecration drummer Mic Hourihan, (also formerly of Extreme Noise Terror,) has joined the band on a permanent basis, replacing founding member Steve Grice, who left the band in March of this year, shortly after the release of the groups fifth studio album, “Sounds Of Violence.” Despite joining Onslaught, Hourihan will continue to be a member of Desecration.
Onslaught bassist Jeff Williams comments: “I have to say I am so fucking happy to have Mic playing full time in Onslaught. Not only is he a really cool guy and a real pleasure to spend time with, but also without doubt the finest drummer that I have ever had the pleasure to play along side, everyone who came along to the Scream For Violence European, UK, Ireland or South American tours and saw Mic in action will certainly testify to this, the guy is a fucking machine! The Onslaught lineup is so powerful, focused and harmonious right now and the new album is going to completely fucking destroy! Bring it on!”
Mic Hourihan comments: “Its such a pleasure to be part of Onslaught, I am so looking forward to making the next record and of course all the touring that comes with being in such a great band!”
