Tocxic Holocaust/Conjure And Command/Relapse Records/2011 CD Review

Toxic Holocaust are a band from Oregon that plays a mixture of black, thrash and speed metal together with some punk influences thrown in and this is a review of their 2011 album "Conjure And Command" which was released by Relapse Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some heavy riffing being thrown in.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffing that combines black, thrash, speed metal and punk together bring ing back the 80's sound but adding a more modern toch to it, while the lead guitars are very chaotic and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are mostly black/thrash sounding growls and screams, while the lyrics cover dark, satanic and hateful themes, as for the prodction it has a very 80's style of production to it while still being professional at the same time.

In my opinion Toxic Holocaust are a good black/thrash band and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Judgement Awaits You" "I Am Disease" "The Liars Are Burning" and "Revelations". RECEMMONDED BUY.
