Portland punk metal hellions TOXIC HOLOCAUST will release their most volatile offering to date, “Chemistry Of Consciousness”, in North America on October 29 (one day earlier internationally) via Relapse Records.
Hank Pearl interviewed TOXIC HOLOCAUST mainman Joel Grind before the band’s 25 August 2011 performance at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago. Here Grind addresses what it is like to go from performing every instrument on every album to handing the power over to new, more permanent bandmates. He then goes on to address the band’s DIY appeal as well as the inspiration for the change in the tone of their work and the new album cover.
Portland’s Toxic Holocaust and BlankTV are proud to present the world premiere of the video for “Judgement Awaits You” from their new album, Conjure and Command.
Toxic Holocaust mutated into existence in 1999, when Joel Grind merged his love for classic punk and metal into his ideal band. Like his influences – Bathory, Venom, English Dogs, Possessed, Broken Bones – Toxic Holocaust features blazing riffs, gravel-throated vocals and a deadly fixation on the evil in man and post-apocalyptic imaginings.
