Thrash metal legends inspired by Swansea talent
Their album recently knocked Metallica off the top of the Amazon thrash metal charts.
And when Onslaught wanted to record a video for their latest single, they turned to a Swansea film maker.
The group, who released their first album in 1984 and have toured their world, had been impressed by the work of Rhodri Thomas, who also works as a youth worker at the Spark Blaenymaes project.
And Rhodri roped in some of his young charges to help out with the filming.
He said: “I have been directing music videos since 2006, and have made nearly 50 music videos for independent record labels and bands from all over the world.
“Onslaught contacted me after seeing my work with Swansea band Prosperina, who are on the verge of great things, to see if I was available to shoot their next music video.

“They had a window of a couple of weeks in-between a tour of Russia and a tour of Europe so I jumped on the opportunity.
“At Spark Blaenymaes, we have two young bands, Good for Nothing, and Troubled. So when I arranged for Onslaught to come down to shoot the music video in the community centre in Blaenymaes, I asked the rock school bands if they would like to crew the shoot.
“Onslaught were fantastic with the young people, really supportive and inspired us all.
The video for the single, entitled Chaos is King, is currently being edited.
Bishop Gore pupil John Webber, who worked on the shoot, said: “It was a great experience.
“We were really excited about it, and I can’t wait to see it”.
Rhodri’s video which inspired Onslaught to get in touch was Trees Have Eyes, by Swansea band Prosperina.
