UK Thrash legends Onslaught are one of the most explosive and controversial Metal bands ever to come out of the UK. Releasing 3 now legendary albums in the 80's (Power From Hell, The Force, In Search of Sanity), the band marked it's path to become a major influence for many Metal generations to follow. Since reforming in 2005, the band have performed countless shows / tours all across the globe, earning themselves the reputation as one of the very best Live Acts in the scene today, with crushing performances at Wacken, Bang Your Head, Thrash Domination, 70000 Tons of Metal, Hammersonic, Hellfest, Brutal Assault & Bloodstock Festivals to name just a few. With four critically acclaimed album releases in 2007 / 2009 / 2011 & 2013 (Killing Peace / Live Damnation / Sounds of Violence / VI) and with the back catalog being released no fewer than 3 times Onslaught stands as one of the most respected acts in the Metal scene today.
During the mass promotion in the USA for the latest studio album ‘VI’ we saw Onslaught reach and stay in the top 10 of the CMJ charts for 4 consecutive weeks. ‘VI’ was also the number 1 selling thrash metal album with Amazon.com becoming one of the biggest selling acts in North America for their Label AFM records.
Early 2016 saw the release of ‘Live at the Slaughterhouse’ a live DVD that celebrated the power and raw intensity of an Onslaught show that was well received by the public and critics alike. 2016 also saw Onslaught as the first international thrash metal band to play Vietnam as well as touring China, Taiwan and Indonesia and Europe.
2017, the band hit South and Central America, Mexico and once again Europe. One of the highlights of the year however was breaking new ground as the first legitimate international thrash metal band ever to play in the Lebanon. With a new album now well underway the Onslaught continues, as relentless and hungry as ever!

Alpha Omega Management is excited to announce the signing of the Turkish metallers Pitch Black Process (aka PBP)! The band's latest effort, "Derin", was released in December 2016 in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on EMP Underground/SPV in Europe.
Comments the band:
"Stoked to announce that we just joined Alpha Omega’s family which is one of the best and fast growing management and booking firms of recent times. We are very excited to see what the future hold for us on this new journey with Alpha Omega’s great team. Stay tuned for the news \m/"
Alpha Omega Management adds:
"We are truly thrilled welcoming these great hard working guys in Pitch Black Process to our roster family! They've conquered their audience wherever they've played so far. With their right attitude, musical ingredients and tenacity, PBP are ready for bigger stages. Stay tuned for next announcements!"
Pitch Black Process, formerly known as Affliction, was initially formed in 1999. Their first two albums “One Reality” (out in May 2003) and “Execution is Necessary” (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (being the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with Varbringer, in February 2010. Before the tour with Warbringer, Pitch Black Process (back then still "Affliction") signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another ‘debut’ for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry.
Due to some misleading information in the cyber world and abroad, Affliction made a hard decision and they changed the name of the band after 12 years and they decided to move forward as Pitch Black Process. In January 2011 the band went to Sweden to record their 3rd album, with the well-known producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, but due some unexpected delays the album came out finally in June 2013. In September 2013, Pitch Black Process played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair’s history. In 2015, Pitch Black Process became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album. After 4 weeks of production “Derin” was completed as a result of amazing chemistry between the band and Bergstrand. The album, with 2 old and well-known Turkish song covers and 3 English-Turkish mixed songs, is a very special album for Pitch Black Process. "Derin" was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music Productions/SPV in Europe.
Pitch Black Process is:
Emrah Demirel – Guitars/Vocals
Kerem Inci – Guitars
Fikri Yargici – Drums
