Yohan Issac- Guitars/Bass, Rueban Issac- Drums/Vocals
Onslaught is a two-piece Christian Alternative Metal Powerhouse from Hyderabad, India formed late in 2007 comprising of brothers, Yohan Issac (Guitars/Bass) and Rueban Issac (Drums/Vocals).
Yohan is the underlying root of the bands unique sound. Bearing the responsibilities of being the bands lead guitarist and bass player, he puts in a lot of effort to smoothen out the rough edges of the band’s music. Yohan’s style involves a blend of melodic acoustic progressions gelled with heavy “in your face” riffs well rounded with killer accompanying solos. He is heavily influenced by heavy metal and power metal bands such as Demon Hunter, Iron Maiden, Children of Bodom, Firewind, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Sonata Arctica, Hammer Fall etc.
Rueban is the architect of the band’s music. He bears the responsibilities of being the drummer, vocalist and lyricist for the band. His vocal styles are a blend of clean with intervals of growls and his drumming styles add to a tighter and more definitive sound to the band’s music. He is heavily influenced by bands such as Mindrage, Six Feet Deep, Sevendust, Deftones, Demon Hunter, Megadeth, Hatebreed etc.
Onslaught record at home and pride themselves on their ability to create recordings on their own terms. Their musical goal is to write songs that they would enjoy listening to in the hopes that other people like themselves will enjoy listening to their songs as well.
Onslaught’s sound is influenced by music ranging from “New age alternative” to “Heavy/Thrash metal” with a hint of Christian values added to it.
