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.

“Chemistry Of Consciousness” track listing:

01. Awaken The Serpent
02. Silence
03. Rat Eater
04. Salvation Is Waiting
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.”

Skindred: ready for take-off

Skindred have announced a UK tour starting in January 2014 with special guests Soil and Viza.

It’s in support of the ragga-metallers’ upcoming album Kill The Power, due out around the same time. They’ve already offered a sneak preview in the form of lead track Ninja – check it out below.

Skindred drummer Arya Goggin says: “We always pride ourselves on having great guests on our tours and we’re really excited to have Soil as our main special guests – especially with Ryan back in the lineup. They’re great friends and absolutely slay it live so we can’t wait to party with them.

“We’re also extremely pleased to have  Viza join the tour and bring some of their unique energetic gypsy punk metal madness to the proceedings. Bring it on!”

Soil bassist Tim King admits: We’re excited and scared to tour with Skindred. We’ll definitely be in danger of having too much fun and getting in too much trouble together… nobody gets out alive!”

Skindred play the Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend.

With Steph Carter recently leaving the fold, Gallows are in the midst of another rocky period for their already turbulent career.

In a week where we’ve seen Nine Inch Nails perform their most intimate UK date in forever and both Green Day and Skindred make considerable, statement-making downsizes themselves, it’s no short order to suggest that the Watford-founded crew have picked a tough few days to land an intimate gig of their own. Plus there’s the small matter of Reading and Leeds looming.

Luckily, we have every confidence that they’re gonna absolutely smash it. Chances are that the UK’s finest punk band for a generation will be firing on all cylinders to give us a taste of what to expect come this weekend, and with mysterious punk/metal supergroup The Hell set to make their debut live appearance as main support, it’s probably safe to bet that this will be a gig that keeps people talking for quite some time, and with the threat of the Macbeth being closed hanging over the evening, there’s an important message behind the music tonight, too!

Anyway, why are we even trying to convince you of why this is worth your time? It’s fucking Gallows! Get yourself a ticket and go lose your shit. Go on.

While musically the band’s striking blend of heavy grooves, neatly polished hooks and promising similarities to the likes of Every Time I Die, Underoath and August Burns Red is proof enough that Dutch metalcore five-piece The Charm The Fury are worth keeping an eye on, the confidence the group exudes at such a young stage in their career borders on startling – a point rammed home by singer Caroline Westendorp when she chatted with Hammer during TCTF’s first trip to the UK together last year.

“We actually played our first gig three weeks [before this interview],” she admits with a laugh. Fair enou-wait, what?! “It went awesomely, but before that we’d spent a year jamming and putting lots of things online. Actually, when I put up some of our covers people thought [my vocals] were fake, and after we were confirmed for [Belgian punk/metal festival] Groezrock last year, some people said that we didn’t deserve to play it because we hadn’t play many live gigs. I hope I proved them wrong.”

It’s not unusual for people to act cynically towards a young metal band packing a talented female singer, but as Caroline confirms, she’s certainly put in the legwork to be given as fair a shot as anyone else, admitting that her ferocious vocal abilities didn’t come about through god-given talent as much as hard work and tireless dedication.

“I practise so much,” she asserts. “Every single day. When I got into touch with heavier music I really got into Underoath and Every Time I Die, but I remember seeing that band Walls Of Jericho, with that really hardcore chick singing, and Arch Enemy, whose singer is very metal. There wasn’t a band [with a female singer] that was in the middle of that; not too metal, not too hardcore and playing the kind of music Underoath play. So, I thought, ‘Maybe I can start that’. Since then I’ve been practising and practising and getting better and better.”

It definitely seems that The Charm The Fury are a band that have plenty to prove but refused to be daunted by such a task, and Caroline and the boys are undoubtedly ready for the slog to come.

“Right now I’m hoping to play a lot of support shows,” muses the singer, “and then from then on maybe we’ll take it to the next level. We’d love our own shows and to be the Dutch band that made it onto Warped Tour!” We wouldn’t complain.

Debut The Charm The Fury EP The Social Meltdown is out now. Their debut full-length drops later this year via Listenable.
