Malicious Onslaught is a New York band that had itís beginning in 1994. They embraced the death/grind/doom technical and black metal scene and they could be considered one of the most open minded bands, when it came to the variety of musical styles in metal, in NY. This band whoís members were:
Ted Hanauer, Robert Hanauer, and Ovie Rodriguez released several albums.
Hereís a short discography:
BRUTAL GORE 1994 demo REBELLIOUS MAYHEM demo THRASHED BLACK demo REBELLIOUS MAYHEM LIVE REHEARSAL demo EMOTIONAL DEATH video single (length, 6 min.)
Distribution of their music was made possible through UNISOUND RECORDS and ESKA RECORDS. They were always busy handing out stickers at shows. Robert used to do a lot of promoting for Malicious Onslaught, they tried playing several shows with difficulty, not because they couldnít but something would usually happen that would now allow them to reach their destination, therefore they considered themselves cursed. Some of you may have seen them at Castle Heights in Queens, NY, afterwards we found out that Robert Hanauer had taken his life sometime between November or December of 1995. Something that was devastating for Malicious Onslaught, especially to his brother Ted.
Yet, Ted Hanauer continues to keep Malicious Onslaught going in memory of his brother. They managed to play a show for ENDEMONIADA FANZINE NIGHT at THE SPIRAL, in NYC. Throughout it all he was so determined to play the show, that although some of the band members didnít make it that night, Ted and Ovie managed to hit the stage and put on a two man band show, and they did quite well. Ovie on drums and Ted on guitar and vocals. They are talented musicians and Ted is a cool guy. Keep you eye out for Malicious Onslaught.
