Toxic Holocaust are fronted by a man who calls himself Joel Grind, who has previously played in bands with names unsuitable for print (even here!). To boot, the trio plays its brand of thrash metal with a nasty, dirty approach worthy of Grind’s C.V. Song subjects include: “Endless Armageddon,” graves, nuked crosses, and “Wild Dogs”–and those are just on their most recent album, 2008’s An Overdose of Death. Bring hand soap. With Ominous Gloom.
