Toxic Holocaust

Toxic Holocaust: apocalypse now

Chemistry Of Consciousness, Toxic Holocaust’s forthcoming first album in five years proves once again that thrash is at its most potent when a) you throw in a whole bunch of sonic pollutants, and b) you actually sound like some badass, nuclear-apocalypse-surviving warrior of the wastelands.

Featuring all manner of d-beats, caustic, black metal atmospheres, true punk venom and an air of genuine menace throughout, Chemistry… – released on October 25 via Relapse Records – is scabrous, coal-eyed thrash metal that that belongs more in the unholy, confrontational company of bands like Destroyer 666, Aura Noir and Nekromantheon than it does in the cleaner cut, more classicist purveyors of the form. Now head honcho Joel Grind has released the track Rat Eater like some particularly nasty flesh-ravaging virus and you can hear it exclusively right here. Thash till death! And beyond!

We've already told you all about Toxic Holocaust's upcoming record Chemistry of Consciousness, but now you can hear it! Fun fact- it's heavy. "Out of the Fire" is pretty much what you'd want from the band at this point; super heaviness with a certain grime about it and a super-in-your-face-attitude… oh, and then there's the …

Live Metal recently conducted an interview with Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA). A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Live Metal: We’re obviously here to talk about the new [SOULFLY] album, “Savages”, which is due out Oct. 1, 2013. My first question is, what does “Savages” refer to? Are these savages of the past, present, or our society as a whole?

Max Cavalera: It’s pretty much mostly about right now and the state of the world. We claim to be sophisticated, and with the Internet and computers, but we’re still decapitating each other, chemical-gassing people — it’s just (savagery). I think the human spirit is still very much a savage, so that’s why I thought the name would be cool. I think (savages) is a cool word, a simple word, but it works with the album cover, with the big skull. And we love the stuff that’s going to go inside with the record. The lyrics — stuff like “Cannibal Holocaust” and “El Comegente”, that deals with serial killers and cannibal people. I think all together it really works on the level and the whole savagery idea for the whole record.

Live Metal: Obviously, you have been a part of so many influential and just classic metal records, again, going back to the SEPULTURA days, and even for those guys, too, it almost set the standard for everything you guys have done since. Now is this pressure that you feel going into each and every album trying to live up to the past SEPULTURA and SOULFLY albums, and to fans expectations?

Max Cavalera: A little bit. There’s always a little bit of pressure, but I work good with pressure. I think it’s motivation. And it’s always a challenge making a new record. I just gotta follow my heart really on an album and don’t even pay attention about what people are gonna say. You now, a lot of people didn’t like “Roots” when it first came out. There was a lot of negative reaction. And now it’s a classic record. Now people praise the album. So you let the time do the talking. I think time fixes everything. And to me, the way I feel about records is, if the record’s good and powerful, I’m good with it. And that’s how I feel about “Roots”, and that’s how I feel about “Savages”. It’s a powerful record done from the heart and exactly what I wanted the record to sound like. And 10 years from now, we’ll see where that record will be in people’s minds. But I think it will remembered great.

Live Metal: What’s the status of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY? Are we gonna hear any more of that in the future from you and (your brother) Igor (Cavalera)?

Max Cavalera: Yeah, we’re making another record next year — all grindcore. I wanna do a grindcore record with that.

Live Metal: A grindcore record?

Max Cavalera: Yeah. (laughs)

Live Metal: Seriously?

Max Cavalera: Yeah, I think it would be really cool. People haven’t heard that from me yet, and I think people will be surprised. I love that kind of stuff — (bands like) WORMROT, NAILS and PULLING TEETH. Just super-heavy with like one-minute songs and kind of old NAPALM DEATH style. I think Igor is going to go for it, man. I think we’re going to pull it out. And then we’ll really shock the world with that.

Live Metal: That sounds very cool, very interesting.

Max Cavalera: It’s always good to do something new, something exciting. I thought of the grindcore idea when I was going through my music collection, and I thought, “I’ve never done a grindcore album. OK, well maybe it’s time to do one? OK, let’s do it with CAVALERA (CONSPIRACY) … OK, let’s do it.”

Live Metal: I’m not trying to put you on the spot here or anything, but with the new SEPULTURA album coming out with Ross Robinson as producer, I’m very interested to hear that. He, of course, did the “Roots” album and the first SOULFLY record, so I think I have good expectations for this thing coming out. Are you interested to hear their new album — or have you heard any of it — and what are your thoughts of them getting back together with Ross Robinson?

Max Cavalera: Ross hasn’t done anything good in a long time. He had spent the last 10 years without anything except Vanilla Ice or some shit like that, which I was like totally disappointed, you know? It’s like, “What is he doing? What the hell is he doing recording with Vanilla Ice, man?” You know, … that’s not cool. I don’t know. I don’t really care for SEPULTURA. To me, I kind of don’t care what they do. It’s kind of a hard topic because I created the band and still consider that part of my life. And it’s really hard to deal with the fact that they continue with the name without me — without any Cavalera. After my brother left, it was even more hard for me to look at them seriously. There’s nobody original in the band. It’s like if MEGADETH was playing without Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson, it would be like, “Why are they still calling it MEGADETH?” That’s how I look at SEPULTURA, and I think a lot of fans share the same opinion. I talk to a lot of fans, and they don’t take them seriously either. You know, I don’t know, maybe Ross can get something out of them, but nobody else could. But I really don’t care what they do. It’s not important for me. I got all my life, my work, my projects, and that’s what I care about. I’ve been in SOULFLY now longer than I was in SEPULTURA, and I love SOULFLY and I love what SOULFLY has created. And I’m very busy here, so I don’t really give a fuck about what those guys do.

Toxic Holocaust have always been good for solid albums, but Chemistry of Conciousness is just something else… damn. Wow… between the music and Kurt Ballou's production, this is going to be a banger (because hip-hop terms are welcome in metal). The song you're hearing on the trailer is "Chemistry Of Consciousness," so at the very …

Portland punk metal hellions TOXIC HOLOCAUST will release their most volatile offering to date, “Chemistry Of Consciousness”, in North America on October 29 (one day earlier internationally) via Relapse Records. The devious new full-length spews forth eleven tracks of revved up, road-raging bestial devastation. The CD was recorded by the band, mixed with Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE) at his own GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (SLEEP, FROM ASHES RISE, NAILS) at Audiosiege Engineering.

05. Out Of The Fire
06. Acid Fuzz
07. Deny The Truth
08. Mkultra
09. I Serve…
10. International Conspiracy
11. Chemistry Of Consciousness

According to a press release, “Chemistry Of Consciousness” is “the sound of DISCHARGE on speed, SLAYER with a punk rock chip on its shoulder, THE EXPLOITED on a METALLICA overdose. It is the perfect marriage of punk angst and metal guitar hooks. If there’s one thing the punks and the heshers will agree on in 2013, it’s that TOXIC HOLOCAUST‘s ‘Chemistry Of Consciousness’ is a rager of a record destined to top any worthwhile best of 2013 list. Recommended for devout followers of MUNICIPAL WASTE, D.R.I., SODOM, MIDNIGHT, GBH, etc.”
