An Overdose of Death...

Rated 2.88/5 (57.5%) (16 Votes)

It's been three years since Toxic Holocaust's last album, Hell on Earth. Their - or should I say his since the band is basically just Joel Grind - previous effort was a good, although a bit misdirected at times, Thrash album. An Overdose of Death... is a much better and more refined piece of dirty Thrash Metal.

The two main problems I had with their last album are fixed. The guitar solos fit the music excellently and the vocals sound evil and harsh, not robotic like on the last album. Despite the band moving to a bigger label, Relapse, Joel Grind still keeps the dirty, raw sound that makes his Thrash Metal mixed with bits of Black Metal sound so evil and mean.

Every song on this album is excellent, which is a difficult task for a 13 track album. Some of the best tracks are the opener, "Wild Dogs", "In the Name of Science", and the best track, "Nuke the Cross". If you are a fan of raw Thrash, be sure to pick this up, as this is Toxic Holocaust's best album yet.
