Crossover thrash unit TOXIC HOLOCAUST will play a special show in Brooklyn, New York Friday January 10th with Japanese thrash metal icons Sacrifice. Set to take place at Market Hotel, the performance serves as Sacrifice’s first ever show on US soil. Additional support will be provided by Philadelphia blackened punk metallers Devil Master and Boston occult hardcore punk unit Sadist.
Issues TOXIC HOLOCAUST founder Joel Grind, “To say I’m looking forward to this upcoming show with Sacrifice is an understatement. Been a fan for years and honored to be a part of this!”
The show precedes TOXIC HOLOCAUST‘s previously announced North American trek supporting Soulfly on their The Summoning tour. The journey will commence February 3rd in Denver, Colorado and make its way through nearly three dozen cities upon its conclusion March 12th in Houston, Texas. Additional support will be provided by X-Method, Madzilla, Skinflint, and Systemhouse 33. See all confirmed dates below.
TOXIC HOLOCAUST continues to tour in support of their latest full-length, Primal Future: 2019, released in October via Entertainment One (“eOne”). An ambitious new mission statement from founder/principal songwriter Joel Grind, the man whose guiding forces remain Discharge, Megadeth, Venom, English Dogs, Nuclear Assault, D.R.I., and G.B.H., all juiced by the unrelenting, feverish, urgent power of a modern metal trailblazer, TOXIC HOLOCAUST 2.0 detonates like doomsday all over Primal Future: 2019. A dystopian technological takeover drives the album thematically, but the passionately delivered music is vintage TOXIC HOLOCAUST, taking things all the way back to the band’s early origins.

The band Terrorizer called, “a whirlwind of booze, denim jackets and riffs,” began kicking out the corrosive jams in basements and bedrooms some twenty years ago, building a punishing legacy of mutant thrash and filthy street punk that’s outlasted the heydays of the genres that spawned them; founder Joel Grind, the headband-wearing headbanger whose dedication to the one-man-band ethos gives the late Quorthon a run for his money, melting down the greatest punk metal crossover riff collection imaginable into nuclear ooze. With each successive release, Grind repurposes the most visceral strengths of speed, thrash, and punk through his own unique vision, making for new metal anthems that consistently reignite a circle-pitting feeding frenzy in the scene.
“Album six is on deck for TOXIC HOLOCAUST and they kick it off with the caustic ‘Chemical Warlords.’ Feral riffs and a gritty production back the snarling punk-thrash onslaught. Those gang chants in the mid-section elevate this track to a TOXIC HOLOCAUST best.” – Loudwire; Best Metal Songs Of 2019…So Far
“…an album that has one foot in the future and one foot in the past.” – Decibel
“Infused with the undying spirit of thrash and savage speed metal, Primal Future 2019 is yet another valiant ode to its founder’s nostalgic 1980s influences.” – Invisible Oranges
“Whether Grind’s methodology is viewed through the lens of musical totalitarianism, artistic necessity, workaholic-ism run amok or what have you, the success TOXIC HOLOCAUST has experienced can’t be denied.” – Outburn
“…if you want to hear some real deal blood ‘n’ thunder that would make Lemmy glow with paternal pride, Joel Grind is still the man to provide it.” – Blabbermouth
“It delivers everything we’ve come to know and love from the band: classic thrash and speed metal with a high dose of old-school energy.” – MetalSucks
“…pure, unadulterated fun.” — Distorted Sound
“‘Chemical Warlords’ fits right in with the band’s legacy of riff-laden punkish metal with its declaratory refrain: ‘You build it up, we’ll tear it down.'” – Consequence Of Sound on “Chemical Warlords”
