Rated 3/5 (60%) (5 Votes)
Long-time fans of Joel Grind's Toxic Holocaust know the band has released a dizzying array of albums, EPs, splits and compilations. From the Ashes of Nuclear Destruction takes 22 tracks of re-recordings, alternate versions and previously unreleased material from across the aforementioned discography and puts them all together in one blasphemous package.
For the uninitiated, Toxic Holocaust, a one-man project up until Conjure and Command, when Grind brought in a permanent band, play filthy, evil and mercilessly old-school Thrash Metal. Show No Mercy-era Slayer is the prime reference. Drums are played at a million miles an hour and within an inch of their collective lives while only Hanneman/King-style torture could make guitars squeal as they do on songs like "Metal Attack" or "Army of One." The vocals range from high-pitched screams to near-Death growls. Grind even manages to combine two of Thrash's lyrical pillars, the threat of nuclear war and anti-religion, on "Nuke the Cross."
From the Ashes of Nuclear Destruction is an absolute must for fans of old Slayer, Venom, Possessed, etc. Break out the neck brace.
