Canadian speed metal pioneers ASSAULT have released official audio for the song “Kamakazi”, taken from their 10-song offering “Kill For Your Life”, which was released in 2018 via SCRAPE Records.
Formed in 1985, ASSAULT gained cult-like status with their 1987 classic “Survival In The Street”. A second album “Kill For Your Life” was recorded circa “88/’89”, but ultimately the band dissolved and the album was shelved until 2018, when it finally received a proper release via independent Vancouver label SCRAPE Records.

Founding members Jeff Zgaljic (guitar) and Russell Dunaway (vocals) have recently announced plans to commemorate the band’s 35th Anniversary with a special release culled from the ASSAULT archives, with more details to be announced soon.
Guitarist Jeff Zgaljic comments: “With so much renewed interest in ASSAULT since the release of ‘Kill For Your Life’, we thought it would make a great opportunity to celebrate the band’s 35th anniversary with a commemorative package. Exact details are still being finalized, but you expect some gems… fans of this band are in for a real treat!“
