Elaborates TOXIC mastermind Joel Grind, “With each record, I like to continue down the same path I’ve started at but do so without rehashing the same ideas over and over. With Chemistry Of Consciousness, I brought in a heavy dose of punk back into our sound. This record brings influence from bands ranging from Anti-Cimex, Warfare, Infernal Majesty, GBH, Discharge, Autopsy and Chaos UK, just to name a small few. Those bands are just a starting point to give you an idea of what’s to come. First and foremost, it sounds like TOXIC HOLOCAUST, and that is always what’s most important to me. Lyrically, I went off with topics I’ve never explored before. Lots of social and political commentary without trying to be preachy or blatant about it. There’s no lyrics like ‘the government sucks’ or whatever but I was just really pissed off about what I see around me and that’s what really fueled a lot of it. There is also a heavy dose of conspiracy and true life war crime topics. Lots of really sinister and evil stuff. Even the songs that seem like they’re about one thing on the surface, after delving into them, are actually about something more. I’m anxious to get this record out there and to start touring again!”
