AllMusic Review by

Just what Venom were hoping to achieve with their many mini-LP releases of the mid-'80s is anyone's guess (maybe they were supposed to make up for the band's endless last-minute canceling of tours due to lack of financial support), but Canadian Assault is not one of the best. The all-live first side, featuring unique versions of seminal classics like "Die Hard" and "Welcome to Hell," certainly has its moments, but side two's studio originals ("Warhead," "Woman") don't really rank among Venom's best efforts.
