Toxic Holocaust & Exhumed Tour US and Europe plus dates with Ramming Speed & Mammoth Grinder


Oregon punk metal ruffians, Toxic Holocaust, will unite with California gore tacticians/labelmates Exhumed, for a North American bout of live abrasions this Winter! The chaos will prevail on January 22nd in Seattle and wind its way through seventeen cities before coming to a mutinous close February 9th in Sacramento. Special guests include Ramming Speed and Mammoth Grinder. The journey precedes the previously announced Toxic Holocaust/Exhumed European invasion set to commence February 22nd.

Comments Toxic Holocaust‘s gravel-throated ambassador Joel Grind, “I’m proud to announce our West Coast tour with gore metal maniaxxx, Exhumed. I guarantee no necks will be left un-wrecked after this onslaught of beer, waste and gore!”

Adds Exhumed head mischief maker Matt Harvey, “In our continuing efforts to drive our beloved van into the ground and rack up another several thousand gallons in complimentary beer, we’re heading out with our friends in Toxic Holocaust to make some serious noise in 2014. It’s shaping up to be a total rager, so come out and rage with us, you won’t regret it!”

Toxic Holocaust, who recently wrapped up a short run of US shows with Ramming Speed and In Defence, released their mammoth Chemistry Of Consciousness full-length earlier this year to the riotous applause of fans and media stateside and abroad. Crowned, “…one of thrash’s most exciting modern bands,” by Loudwire, “…the aural equivalent of a cobra with a chest tattoo of a double helix and syringes for fangs getting ready to strike amidst two flesh-like walls of anxious, bloodshot eyes…,” by MetalSucks, ” “a bottled up riot distilled into musical form,” by Metal Injection, ” and, “….hands down one of the coolest crossover albums put to tape,” by Apeshit, Chemistry Of Consciousness continues to dehydrate the masses with a platter that pays tribute to the likes of Anti-Cimex, Warfare, Infernal Majesty, GBH, Discharge, Autopsy and Chaos UK without replicating them. The band appeared on the cover of Decibel’s December 2013 issue and earned the #12 position on the magazine’s Top 40 Albums of 2013 list. Additionally, Toxic Holocaust ranked in at #5 on Noisecreep‘s 10 Best Vinyl Releases of 2013.

Exhumed are presently scattering their seeds of wrath alongside hardcore thrash mutants Iron Reagan and, habitually hooked on van life, recently added additional dates to their journey (see a complete listing of Exhumed assaults below). The band is touring in support of their critically adored Necrocracy full-length. Dubbed one of 2013’s “best death/goregrind releases,” by About.com, and, “the feel-good gore-grind album of the year,” by Orlando Weekly, the offering serves as the band’s most musically proficient, sonically mauling and conceptually provoking recording of their catalog. In a 9/10 rating, Outburn notes “The album seethes with vitriol, visceral shredding and thunderous grooves and it yields not a dull moment across its 29 minutes,” while Metal Insider adds, “This is death metal the way it should be, but hardly is anymore: complex but still compact, well-played without being wanky, brutal without going to ridiculous extremes, and listenable, if not inviting, in spite of its inherent ghastliness.Necrocracy kills, plain and simple.” Monopolizing year end lists globally, the record came in at #24 on Decibel‘s Top 40 list and #11 on the New Noise‘s Top 100 Metal & Rock Albums of 2013.
