Hitting the Pavement: Toxic Holocaust

TOXIC HOLOCAUST: Shoot Video For “Nuke The Cross”; Announce Eastern Canada Headlining Dates

TOXIC HOLOCAUST recently teamed up with director Jamie Robilard to shoot the second video from their Relapse debut An Overdose Of Death…. The video, for “Nuke The Cross”, was lensed in Oregon just prior to the band’s current tour with NAPALM DEATH and is currently in post-production. An international premiere date will be announced shortly.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST’s Joel Grind commented on the video: “We recently wrapped up the filming of the Nuke the Cross video with director Jamie Robilard. This video has some similar themes as the last one (i.e. waste barrels, fire, etc.) but everything has been taken to 10! The danger level to band and crew has definitely been taken up a notch...it's one of those things that you are going to have to see to understand. I don't wanna spoil it just yet. Filming took place in a few locations in Oregon, the main scene especially looks amazing as it was filmed in an old burned down saw mill in Vernonia. Just a note to everyone, booze and fire don't mix, but it makes things so much more fun!”

TOXIC HOLOCAUST is currently out as part of the “Campaign For Musical Destruction Tour 2009” with NAPALM DEATH, KATAKLYSM, COLISEUM, and TRAP THEM. This four-week tour includes a stop at the New England Metal and Hardcore Fest this weekend in Worcester, MA as well as two free in-stores in South Carolina and Georgia respectively for the band. Immediately following this tour, TOXIC HOLOCAUST will headline a run of dates in eastern Canada, keeping them on the road through early June.

“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

“There isn’t a track An Overdose Of Death… that won’t immediately induce headbanging, while the choruses will have you shouting right along.” – Metal Maniacs

“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
