This riff fest of classic thrash was released in 1986 in what was to become probably the most defining year in the history of the genre. And have no doubts, The Force deservedly takes it place in the list of classic thrash albums that were released that year. Of course, it's no Reign in Blood, Peace Sells or Master of Puppets but it easily stands shoulder to shoulder with other heavyweight albums such as Pleasure to Kill, Eternal Devastation or Game Over. And all this from only downthe channel in Bristol? Yes, we too here in the British Isles could thrash with the best of them so we should be very proud of the mighty Onslaught indeed!

This is seven tracks of relentless riffing that is delivered with passion and precision and it is so brilliant an example of thrash in its heydey. Why make do with all the current thrash wannabe's recycling these old riffs when you can have the real thing! A strange album in some ways as there are only seven tracks but with each song clocking in at over 6 minutes except one, there are no fillers or leftover indulgences here. The intricate solo's are all handled with aplomb by the backbone of the band; Mr. Nige Rockett. And the thunderous riffs just keep on coming which culminates in an all encompassing sound characterized by knockout punch heaviness. And vocalist Sy Keeler is a revelation too. At times he does his best Tom Araya impression, but what thrash band at this time didn't want to sound a bit like Slayer eh? But in fairness, Sy has an accomplished set of pipes of his own and he really rallies the troops with anthems like `Let there be Death' and `Metal Forces'. The lyrics are the usual evil/demon hokum which are pure tack but all the best thrash just wouldn't sound the same if they were signing about flowers and knitting would it?

The ultimate THRASH band! 4 Dec. 2004
By David Cantu - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Onslaught was one of those bands from the '80s that will forever be engrained as masters of the death metal genre. Their first album "Power From Hell" was as vicious as anything that had been released up to that point--Sodom's "In The Sign Of Evil", Celtic Frost's "Morbid Tales" and Slayer's "Hell Awaits". "Power From Hell" was pure evil.....

The second album "The Force" was more thrashy, but still 100% evil. Starting with the album cover (a pentagram) and with song titles such as "Fight With The Beast", "Demoniac", and the godly "Let There Be Death", how can anybody think that this was Stryper?

If you claim to be a metalhead and are into '80s Death/Speed/Black/Thrash/HEAVY metal, GET THIS!

Caution: May cause whiplash!!!

One Of The Few Good British Thrash Albums To Come Along 30 Jan. 2005
By Metal_Is_King - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Can you name all of the great British thrash metal that came along in the 1980's? Well, there was Motorhead (not really a true thrash band, but they certainly influenced the scene). Then you had Venom, the band that started the Black Metal movement. Venom also made the Sex Pistols sound like Donny & Marie. Discharge and Broken Bones? They were more punk than metal. Then there was.......uh......hmmmm. It seems that all of the truly great thrash albums of the '80s either came from America or continental Europe.

One of the few exceptions was Onslaught's THE FORCE. When I was a teenager back in the mid-80's I used to listen to this radio show in New York call Midnight Metal. Imagine, six hours of heavy metal on the radio every Saturday night. Anyway, one night in the Spring of '86 they played "Let There Be Death". I was instantly hooked. The guitar riffs were insane. The song was so unbelievably vicious, yet at the same time, it didn't fly completely off the rails. Their vocalist had a decent voice. I had to go out and get the album. The whole thing is very good. This is working-man's thrash metal. The best songs are "Let There Be Death", "Demoniac", and "Flame Of The Antichrist". I'm giving the album four stars instead of five because of the silly Satanic lyrics. If you can get past that, this album is a gem. The editorial review for THE FORCE compared it to early Slayer. Don't worry about that. Every thrash metal band ends up being compared to Slayer. Onslaught stood up on their own with this album.

One of the best thrash albums of the 80's 15 July 2010
By Matt - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Wow, this CD is awesome.

As a kid growing up in the 80's I was a huge fan of the big 4 and bands like Exodus and Testament, but never heard of Onslaught. The thrash revival of the last decade has brought me back full circle and I am now discovering great bands like this.

This CD is awesome. Riff after riff after riff. The production is good, and while the singer is not the greatest, I actually kind of like his voice. His screams are fairly lame, but beyond that his delivery is a cut above most of the singers from that day.

Demoniac and Fight With the Beast are my personal favorites.

I also recommend Torture-Storm Alert, Coroner, Vio-Lence, Dark Angel, Xentrix, Sabbat, Exhorder, Annihilator, Exumer, Atheist, Forced Entry, Invocator, Wargasm, Heathen, Atrophy, Believer, Coroner, Carnivore, Kublai Khan, Mordred, Sanctuary, Watchtower
