Toxic Holocaust (USA)

Headless Horseman present...

Toxic Holocaust, Nuke the Southern Cross Tour!

Portland, USA metal punk assailants Toxic Holocaust were formed by Joel Grind in 1999 to pay homage to the raw days of metal and punk. Influenced by bands like Discharge, Venom, Slayer and G.B.H. - Toxic Holocaust create the perfect marriage of punk angst and metal aggression.

Toxic Holocausts latest album, Chemistry of Consciousness, which was released October 2013 on Relapse Records was self-recorded by Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore, mixed with Kurt Ballou (Converge) at GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering. It continues the viscous combination of speed metal/punk that has made Toxic Holocaust into one of the most lethal live bands.

Joining them are Bulletbelt (Wgtn) fresh from recent support slots with Sepultura, Ringworm, Goatwhore, Napalm Death, Carcass and their NZ/AUS tour with Midnight.

Local supports to be advised.
