Toxic Holocaust, Krum Bums, Holy Grail, Atrophix

When: Sun., Aug. 14, 10 p.m. 2011

Toxic Holocaust is a reminder of an era when a teenager's interest in heavy metal was cause for alarmist news reports. Toxic Holocaust's only permanent member, Joel Grind, is an acolyte of such parent-tormenting sounds of the 1980s. Blending Discharge's grimy hardcore with Slayer's menacing thrash and Obituary's death metal plod, Toxic Holocaust's crust-caked fourth album, Conjure and Command, is an apocalyptic vision soundtracked by a steady battering of percussion and Grind's dry, barking vocal. It's not as scary as it might have been in 1985, but that doesn't make it less fun. —Bryan C. Reed
