Listening to this album brought to mind the previous effort by British death-or-glory boys Onslaught: "Expanding the threshold of power (power!)" (Sounds Of Violence, "Born For War") And you know what? That's exactly what they did.

Picking up from where the aforementioned album left off, VI continues Onslaught's revitalization and plays ferocious thrash metal at a dynamic and volatile pace. Fast blazers like "Chaos Is My King" and "Fuel For My Fire", the latter of which could be a representation of what Onslaught would've sounded like if they came from LA in the 80's rather than Britain, show the band doing as they've come together to do.

  Oh, man. This album gets better with every listen. Children of the Sands, especially. What a colossal track that is.

Exactly the same here. My vote in the thrash category, if I had to vote now.

  Good release. Some power punches on plague faces and one hell of thrash release.

"Children of the Sands" and " Cruci-Fiction" clearly stands out.

Rating: 7 Is this one on par with Killing Peace? Sounds of Violence was excellent but I think Killing Peace had the better songs.

  Pretty good , better than usual. "Childer of the Sand" reminds me the Prince Of Persia soundtrack , "Fuel For My Fire" have great chorus and "Chaos Is My King" is powerful. Great drums.

Rating: 7 An improvement over "Sounds Of Violence" which wasn't bad but a lacking in standout tracks compared to "Killing Peace".

"VI" still lacks that "bouncy Thrashy aggression" I am so fond of and which made "Killing Peace" so much fun to listen to.

"Children of the Sand" is a cool little track though especially with that Middle Eastern sounding chant on it.

Rating: 8 I like this album a lot, but still find KIlling Peace and Sounds of Violence more neck-breaking and head-crushing. Maybe the reason is that VI sounds about as original as its title.
Favourite tracks: Children of the Sand, 66 Fucking 6, Cruci-Fiction.
