Time:  46 min.
Genre:  rock

Power from Hell is the debut studio album by English "crossover" thrash band ONSLAUGHT, released in February 1985. Apparently confusion has arisen as to who coined the phrase Death Metal, as it was NOT Onslaught but; Possessed who recorded their song entitled "Death Metal" on their 1984 demo tape of the same name. "Power from Hell" was reissued in 1996 by "Powerage Records", again in 2005 by Blackend Records and received a full remaster by Jacob Hansen for the 2012 release on "AFM Records". The 2012 release rectifies the track listing problem encountered on previous releases and has revamped artwork with liner notes by Steve Grice. They started as punk hardcore band and released 2 demos in this style before shifting to their more well-known "crossover" thrash approach. Not to be confused with another punk band called Onslaught from the UK, who released an 7" called "First Strike" on "Control Records" in 1984.
