Toxic Holocaust + Ramming Speed + In Defence

Critics' pick
Toxic Holocaust does exactly one thing—white-knuckle, retro-style thrash, with a ferocious punk edge—and does it really, really well. Here frontman Joel Grind & Co. bring the pain to Greenpoint, where they support their scathing new one, Chemistry of Consciousness. Also on board is Boston's aptly named Ramming Speed, which mashes together riff-happy thrash and raucous grindcore.
