Tóxica - 2016 - Ahogados En Contaminacion (LP)

Tóxica is an Argentinian thrash metal band. Ahagados En Contaminacion is their debut LP courtesy of Witches Brew. Citing thrash forefathers Exodus, Testament and Slayer these beer swilling metalheads churn out riff after crushing riff. The singer has a solid voice that is put to good use as a drill sergeant. Equal parts thrash, speed and crossover thrash this record is stuffed to overflowing with heavy riffs that demand headbanging.



There is no subtlety here, from the word go the riffs are fast and heavy and aimed directly at your head, the dual guitars hammer the riffs home while the solos wail and scream like souls condemned. While Tóxica isn't breaking any new ground here they have staked their claim as a speed and thrash metal band to watch. If you're searching for some new thrash metal Tóxica's Ahagados En Contaminacion will serve well.
