Toxic Holocaust
$10-12

The first track on Toxic Holocaust's new record Conjure and Command is the aptly named "Judgment Awaits You." It's 1:56 of blisteringly fast early-'90s Sepultura-esque thrash—the perfect way to kickstart an extremely brutal album that makes the wrath of God seem cowardly in comparison. Proceeding tracks like the chugging, bloodthirsty "Bitch," the slow and slithering "I Am Disease," and the straight-ahead rocker "The Liars Are Burning" contain all the elements that have made thrash great over the years, yet none of them come off as stale or done to death. Joel Grind is a modern thrash-metal genius. That, or he has an amazing record collection that provides endless inspiration. Either way, we win in the end. ARIS WALES
