Crossover thrash unit TOXIC HOLOCAUST will release its long-awaited new full-length, Primal Future: 2019, on October 4th via new label home, Entertainment One (“eOne”).
TOXIC HOLOCAUST 2.0 detonates like doomsday all over Primal Future: 2019, an ambitious new mission statement from 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.
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. “When I started the band in 1999, I never imagined I’d still be doing it in 2019,” Grind explains. “It’s been a long time coming but the new album is finally ready and it’s sort of a culmination of my past twenty years of doing this band. Most notably, I decided to go back to my roots and record this entire album by myself and play all of the instruments like I did in the early days. It was a lot of fun and nostalgic and at the same time exciting to be able to apply everything I’ve learned over the years.”
Primal Future: 2019 was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grind with artwork by Steve Crisp. In advance of its release, a lyric video for opening bruiser, “Chemical Warlords,” has been unveiled. “‘Chemical Warlords’ opens the album and sets the tone for the rest of the record. My vision for this album was sort of a cyberpunk dystopian future
