Toxic Holocaust completes new album

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 7:19 PM PT

Official press release:

Portland's favorite punk metal combatants, Toxic Holocaust, recently completed the recording of their long-anticipated forthcoming new full-length. Titled Chemistry Of Consciousness, the 12-track beast of an offering was recorded by the band themselves, mixed with friend, Converge guitarist and renowned producer, Kurt Ballou at his own GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering.

Elaborates Toxic founder Joel Grind, he of "spewed blasphemies and death-machine guitar tones" (Revolver): "I'm excited to announce that the new Toxic Holocaust record has been completed. We recorded it ourselves like we did last time but this time around we had our friend Kurt Ballou mix. It's sounding so crushing! Lots and lots of distortion! Musically I went into a more punky territory than the last record while still maintaining the Toxic Holocaust sound. I look forward to everyone hearing it!"

Chemistry Of Consciousness is set to deploy this Fall via Relapse Records. Further details – including cover art and track listing - to be revealed in the coming weeks.
