Toxic Holocaust are a band from Oregon that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines black metal, thrash and punk together and this is a review of their 2013 compilation album "From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction" which was released by Relapse Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black metal, thrash and punk together to create a sound of their own along with some dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as a brief use of traditional metal elements, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding black/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all black/thrash metal screams and growls, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christian, Horror, Violence and Metal themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, old school, raw and primitive sound to it while you can s till hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion t his is a very great sounding compilation from Toxic Holocaust and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Metal Attack" "Thrashing Death" "Nuke the Cross" and "Suicide Eye". RECOMMENDED BUY.
