"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 on Chemical Warlords


"'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


"Wonderfully tight and trimmed down to be lean and mean Primal Future: 2019 will destroy minds and reap souls." - Two Guys Metal Reviews


"...this album is chock full of fist banging mania...." - Indy Metal Vault


Toronto, ON – September 12, 2019 – Crossover thrash unit, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, will kick off a massive North American tour supporting Gwar next week. The Use Your Collusion Tour will commence September 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a stop in Toronto on September 30th, and run through November 5th in Indianapolis, Indiana. Additional support will be provided by Sacred Reich and Against The Grain. See all confirmed dates below.


TOXIC HOLOCAUST will be touring in support of their long-awaited new full-length, Primal Future: 2019, set to drop October 4th via new label home, Entertainment One. The band Terrorizer Magazine 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.


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.

"The new album is sort of a culmination of my past twenty years of doing this band," notes Grind. "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."
