Crossover thrashers TOXIC HOLOCAUST have unleashed a new music video for the track “New World Beyond,” off the band’s latest full-length, Primal Future: 2019, released last fall via Entertainment One (eOne).
The clip was shot in Oregon City by band founder/principal songwriter Joel Grind and Jaime Robillard and is available for viewing above. Comments Grind, “‘New World Beyond’ is a song about a dystopian future where resources are scarce and daily life is a struggle for survival.”
“A punitive thrash metal project influenced by hardcore punk, west coast hard rock, and proto-death metal bands of the ’80s such as Discharge, Hellhammer, and Venom, Toxic Holocaust is largely a one-man operation run by Oregon native Joel Grind. Emerging in the late ’90s, the project eventually expanded into a live entity, and by 2020 the group had issued six well-received full-length albums and multiple EPs. Grind founded the band in 1999 in the city of Portland. Writing and recording all of the group’s music himself, he issued a pair of demos (1999’s Radiation Sickness and 2002’s Critical Mass) before unleashing the project’s first full-length effort, Evil Never Dies, in 2003. The group’s burgeoning popularity in the metal underground prompted Grind to take the enterprise out of the studio and onto the stage, so he hired a backing band and hit the road. However, the expanded version of Toxic Holocaust would not make its way into the studio for album number two.” – All Music
