YES!!!! All guns blazing 'til the speakers come blasting out of the rack! Toxic Holocaust celebrate on Conjure And Command Thrash Metal in its purest form. Everything from wrecking ball riffing to throttled, but nonetheless brutal grooves is present on this li'l platter. It's their 4th album in total (besides lots of splits and EP's) and the 2nd one on Relapse.

The vocals are delivered in the typical Thrash Metal style we all have come to love since the early days. Razor sharp guitar attacks get boosted by brute force from the four-string axe and the drummer never seems to miss a 16th note. Nothing to moan about.
Rooted in Old School Thrash and metalized Punk equally (Venom, Slayer and Discharge come to mind), the songwriting shows main man Joel Grind's qualities at their best.
10 tracks and 33 minutes of playtime leave no doubts that only the toughest smashers made their way onto the album, intensifying the whole thing even more.
The cover is also worth mentioning, as it is a pleasing back to the roots approach compared to the overtly computer generated images on lots of today's Metal albums.

Conjure And Command proves that you don't have to belong to the Bay Area scene to put the “H” back in Trash Metal. If you're into the likes of Skeletonwitch, I'm sure you'll love these guys, too!
