The band Terrorizer called “a whirlwind of booze, denim jackets and riffs,” began kicking out their corrosive jams in basements and bedrooms some twenty years ago, building a punishing legacy of mutant thrash and filthy street punk that’s outlasted the heydays of the genres that spawned them.
Founder Joel Grind, the headband-wearing headbanger whose dedication to the one-man-band ethos gives the late Quorthon a run for his money, repurposes the most visceral strengths of speed, thrash, and punk through his own unique prism, making for new metal anthems that consistently reignite a circle-pitting feeding frenzy in the scene.
Primal Future: 2019 is an ambitious new mission statement from the man whose guiding forces remain Discharge, Megadeth, Venom, English Dogs, Nuclear Assault, D.R.I., and G.B.H., all juiced by the unrelenting, feverish, urgent power of a modern metal trailblazer.
A dystopian technological takeover drives the album thematically, but the passionately delivered music is vintage TOXIC HOLOCAUST, taking things all the way back to the band’s early origins. “When I started the band in 1999, I never imagined I’d still be doing it in 2019,” Grind explains.
“It’s been a long time coming but the new album is finally ready and it’s sort of a culmination of my past twenty years of doing this band. Most notably, I decided to go back to my roots and record this entire album by myself and play all of the instruments like I did in the early days. It was a lot of fun and nostalgic and at the same time exciting to be able to apply everything I’ve learned over the years.”
