In a hot mess of a 3-way between Motörhead, Bathory, and Discharge, the prodigal son was born. That sons name is Joel Grind. This is the release of his band, Toxic Holocaust’s new album, Chemistry of Consciousness. Which comes out October 29, 2013 in the U.S.
Chemistry of Consciousness is a fucking massive attack from the get go!
As in your face as a game of Russian Roulette!
A fucking Riff Riot!
I’ll give you a Thrash by Thrash breakdown of the first few songs and leave the rest of the album to your anticipation, as I do.
The first track, Silence, holds nothing back with its Face Fisted Thrash N Roll Kamikaze.
Track 2- Awaken the Serpent- is like grinding your face against a buzz saw!
Track 3 – Rat Eater – Joel has definitely captured the essence of old school black metal like Bathory and Venom in this ball buster.
I’m a sucker for a epic solos and good shreds. Joel doesn’t do that and never has. So don’t expect any “New/out of the box” kind of shit from this album. It’s just and addition to the already blistering resume to how great Toxic Holocaust is.
If you can imagine a “Raw yet Polished” thrash album… well you cant! Not one that can compare to the blistering machine gun assault that Toxic Holocaust will lay down before you on Oct 29, 2013
