    TOXIC HOLOCAUST: Enter The Studio; Announce January Tour Dates

    TOXIC HOLOCAUST has entered Dexters Lab in Milford, CT to begin work on the long-awaited follow-up to An Overdose Of Death…. The band is recording with TOXIC HOLOCAUST / KINGDOM OF SORROW drummer and engineer Nick Bellmore (HATEBREED, PHANTOMS, FULL BLOWN CHAOS). The new full-length is expected to see a late spring 2011 release date.

    Additional release information will be posted shortly and studio updates are posted regularly at Twitter.com/ToxicHolocaust.
    TOXIC HOLOCAUST frontman Joel Grind recently checked in from the studio with the following; “We are on Day 4 of recording the new record, everything is coming together quickly and smoothly. Drums are finished and we have started on guitar tracks. I’m excited for people to hear this new stuff, its not going to alienate old fans by any means but I think it might attract some new ones. It’s definitely a step up from what we've done, and this time around we've increased the evil ten fold. The lyrics on this record are a little darker including lots of occult themes as well as real life shit that is stranger than fiction could ever be.”
    Additionally, TOXIC HOLOCAUST has announced a run of January tour dates following their recording session. The band will kick-off this headlining tour on January 12th in Brooklyn, NY, before working their way west. A listing of confirmed tour dates and cities can be found below with more to be announced soon.

    “It’s aggressive, it’s heavy, and most of all, it’s fun.” – Alarm Magazine

    “a sound that recalls the punk side of thrash as much as the metal…Channeling both D.R.I. and Bathory from his bedroom studio, Grind has given us one to shred on.” – Metal Edge

    “Equal parts nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude!” – Revolver

    “when Grind delivers a riff as devastating as the one that propels “Gravelord,” you’ll want to don a black leather jacket – and a gas mask.” – Las Vegas CityLife

    “Very rarely do the gods of evil align planets so precisely, so perfectly that an album of this magnitude is possible.” – Exclaim!

    “Joel Grind merges DIY thrash-punk and LA rock with a post-apocalyptic, futuristic edge. Refreshing, original thrash, at last!” – Terrorizer
