Digital version of the YELLOWGOAT Sessions available NOW!!

Joel Grind: The YELLOWGOAT Sessions full length album is now available on iTunes, Bandcamp & Nimbits with Spotify, Amazon, MOG etc soon to follow.

10 tracks of raw and fuzzed out Rock & Roll / Metal / Punk in the vein of the first Bathory album, Motorhead as well as pretty reminiscent of the demo days of Toxic Holocaust (specifically the Critical Mass demo). If you are looking for over produced shit that passes as Metal today this is NOT for you!! 

I've decided to do what I did with the first single "Cross Damanation" and put this album up as a "name your own price" release with a suggested donation of $5. You are welcome to pay whatever you feel like paying or pay nothing at all.

Making a recording is far from free, your donation of any size goes toward supporting an independent artist and allows projects like this to continue. In my opinion, music being released direct from the artist to the fan with no middle men is the future...with your support of this project as well as similiar ones from other artists I think we can make a serious change in the way the music "biz" is run.

Thank you!

Preorders for the LP, as well as a limited edition bundle with LP, T-shirt, and bonus track available from here:

Joel Grind’s The YELLOWGOAT Sessions: First Single Unleashed

Gristle up your holiday caroling with “Cross Damnation," the first single from Joel Grind's The YELLOWGOAT Sessions offering. Recorded as a TOXIC HOLOCAUST return-to-form of sorts (think the Critical Mass demo), The YELLOWGOAT Sessions are raw, unrefined, reverbed out, distorted to hell and violently delicious.

Comments Joel Grind of the release: “I decided to not call this a TOXIC HOLOCAUST record for a few reasons. The main one being that TOXIC has sort of morphed from being a solo project to now being a full band. That's not saying you won’t see other ‘solo’ TOXIC material, but for right now it's definitely a solid band. Also, this record is definitely less thrash and more dirty rock ‘n’ roll. Finally, I didn't want to just slap the TOXIC name on it to sell it. I recorded this because I was anxious to record something like this again without over thinking things.”

“Cross Damnation" is currently available as a free download with the optional suggested donation of $1.00 USD from the following sites:



The full album will be released digitally January 15, 2013 with vinyl to follow in late February via Acid Rat Records.You can preview the entire album here at THIS LOCATION.

Toxic song on Sons of Anarchy Nov. 20

Tune in to FX Nov. 20th to hear our song "Bitch" in the upcoming episode of Sons of Anarchy.

I read the script for the scene it will be used in and it sounds pretty intense!
