TOXIC HOLOCAUST have completed work on their long-awaited album entitled Chemistry of Consciousness. The album was recorded by the band themselves, with mixing duties handled by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Torche, High on Fire) at GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege Engineering.

Toxic Holocaust founding member, Joel Grind, comments: “I’m excited to announce that the new TOXIC HOLOCAUST record has been completed. We recorded it ourselves like we did last time but this time around we had our friend Kurt Ballou mix. It’s sounding so crushing! Lots and lots of distortion! Musically I went into a more punky territory than the last record while still maintaining the TOXIC HOLOCAUST sound. I look forward to everyone hearing it!”

Chemistry of Consciousness will be released by Relapse Records later this year, and more details including tracklisting and cover artwork are due to be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Ashes of Nuclear Destruction  – a 22 track TOXIC HOLOCAUST anthology released earlier this year, which compiless over a decade’s worth of demos and rarities is available to order from Relapse HERE.
