Neo-thrash revolutionaries TOXIC HOLOCAUST will join forces with fellow Portlanders and Relapse sludge/thrash colleagues LORD DYING this fall for a 34-date US tour. The trek will begin in Seattle and wreak havoc across the northern half of the country before weaving back through the southern US to conclude in Oakland.  A complete listing of dates is available below.

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. Still in support of the universally-acclaimed 2013 record Chemistry of Consciousness, the trio of relentless road warriors has been called one of “the most enduring and genuine crossover bands of the modern generation” by Terrorizer and has long since established its reputation as an inimitably fierce live act. Stream Chemistry of Consciousness on Bandcamp and check out the band’s mind-bending video for the track “Acid Fuzz” here.

Still fresh off the early 2015 release of their well-received sophomore record Poisoned Altars, LORD DYING seem to be well on the path to matching TOXIC HOLOCAUST’s touring schedule with their fourth US run in six months. The band’s Portland-brewed recipe of sludgy mayhem has been hailed worldwide by publications including Metal Hammer and Metal Injection, the former of which dubbed Poisoned Altars “heavy fucking metal…of a willfully raw and hostile kind that shrugs off subtlety and embraces the beast within.” Feast your eyes on the morbid, old-school styled video for “A Wound Outside of Time” at this location, and stream Poisoned Altars on Bandcamp here.
