TOXIC HOLOCAUST death master 7" (2003)
1. death master
2. Metal attack
This is another record that I'm pretty proud to have been part of. I was introduced to Joel/Toxic Holocaust through Yosuke of Nuclear War Now Records. Yosuke had turned me on to the one man band, and put me in contact after I gushed over how the stuff he'd played me just simply reminded me of every great thrash metal record I'd heard in the 80's. Think Destruction, Sodom, Bullet belts, bowls, beers, and partying in the woods. These are the things I thought of when I heard Toxic Holocaust. It took me back two decades, and made me feel really good again. Total shivers up the spine, and very nostalgic for me. After Talking to Joel, and realizing he was a totally awesome dude, who came from the punk scene, we decided to do this 7" together.
Later Joel came to Albany NY to play a Fest for my label. It was truly awesome to see this dude live. I think its great that Joel has had so much success, and gets the support of people to play the music that he loves.
