Onslaught have announced Mic Hourihan as their new drummer. He will replace Steve Grice. The band announced it on their Facebook page: "British thrashers Onslaught have announced that drummer Michael "Mic" Hourihan (Desecration, Extreme Noise Terror) has officially joined the band on a full time basis. Mic has been touring with Onslaught since March 2011, and has already done over 50 shows with the band including South American, UK and European tours."

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!"

Mic will also be continuing his role in Welsh death metallers Desecration.

Great drummer, but I wouldn't have thought he fit Onslaught's style... Hopefully we'll get another Desecration one soon...
