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!

SoCal Theme Parks 360 has uploaded a five-minute walk-through of “Black Sabbath: 13 3D”, the new all-original, terrifying 3D maze immortalizing Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler from BLACK SABBATH, the celebrated, multi-platinum rock band that pioneered the heavy metal genre with their dark and doom-laden sounds, fused with lyrical themes of the occult, addiction, war and nuclear apocalypse.

The new maze, which opened this past Friday, September 20 at Universal Studios Hollywood‘s premier Halloween Horror Nights event, is based on the darkest lyrics from BLACK SABBATH‘s biggest hit songs and is the only attraction at the horror event to incorporate 3D video. It also includes scenes inspired by the legendary band’s recently released Billboard #1 album, “13″. A nightmarish landscape of doom engulfs guests as they enter “Black Sabbath: 13 3D” and traverse through horrifying graveyards, disturbing madhouses and bone-chilling battlefields.

“We were all really excited when Universal Studios Hollywood approached us about doing a 3D ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze based on our music,” said BLACK SABBATH‘s Ozzy Osbourne. “I’ve seen the drawings of what it will look like when it’s finished and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to walk through it on opening night in September.”

Guests come face to face with a heart-stopping Lucifer and his bride, blood-soaked dead bodies and bubbling pools of “radioactive water” while songs inspired by “Luke’s Wall”, “Iron Man”, “Paranoid”, “War Pigs”, “Electric Funeral” and — of course — “Black Sabbath” violently penetrate the confines of the maze at high volume.

“Very few bands can claim to have defined a genre of music but BLACK SABBATH‘s remarkable influence in the evolution of heavy metal will go down in history,” said John Murdy, creative director for Universal Studios Hollywood. “Tony Iommi‘s dark, iconic riffs, Ozzy Osbourne‘s haunting vocals and Geezer Butler‘s foreboding lyrics provide the perfect soundtrack for ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and endless inspiration for our new haunted attraction ‘Black Sabbath 13 3D’.”

“Halloween Horror Nights” 2013 at Universal Studios Hollywood brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures and features a slate of unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled Scare Zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience, uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties. This year’s haunted attractions will include “The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven”, based on AMC‘s Golden Globe-nominated, Emmy Award-winning show, and “Evil Dead: Book of the Dead”, inspired by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment‘s chilling remake of the cult classic.
