It was a bad day, but I wish I could remember more of it.
Artwork was completed by longtime Kill Ritual artist Jobert Mello (Sabaton, Primal Fear, Benedictum). ‘Karma Machine’ also marks the debut of new vocalist David Reed Watson , drummer Koryun Bobikyan and bassist Bobby HQ Storm.
VOIVOD’s drummer Michel “Away” Langevin checked in with the following comment about the upcoming tour: “We are proud to be part of this crazy line-up and psyched to go back to Europe again this year. What a thrill to meet all our friends once more and share the stage with our partners in metal.”
Though TOXIC HOLOCAUST are currently in the midst of a 20-date European tour that has included appearances at renowned festivals across the subcontinent (including Slovenia’s Metal Days and the upcoming Czech fest Brutal Assault), the band won’t rest for more than a few weeks before hitting the road again.

“Due to the fact that defending the claim of ‘willful infringement’ and ‘unfair competition’ is lengthy and expensive, we are now CHRCH. The bourgeoise system of ownership demands that knowledge and culture be rationed by the ability to pay. We thank everyone for their overwhelming support thus far. We are approaching our dates with Primitive Man and Northless August 13th-17th and we open for Pentagram in Santa Cruz on August 29th. In darkness, CHRCH.”
Their third and latest album, The World Is My Enemy Now, was released on 12 August 2014. The band is currently signed to Sumerian Record

“We wanted to stay true to our roots” explains Kristen, guitarist. “Everything we’ve written comes from a real life experience. Music, like any art medium, has always been a form of catharsis for us, its all about trying to take something negative that happened in your life and turn it into something positive. And we’ve had a lot of pent up anger to get out on this record. But we did our best to move past those issues and turn them into something for the greater good, because, I think, the whole idea is, if I can’t heal from my art, how can you heal from it?.” “Yeah, we’ve poured our hearts into this record and we really hope people can connect with it on some level” Sarah adds.
