JOEL GRIND'S YELLOWGOAT
"THE YELLOWGOAT SESSIONS"
Many of you may be familiar with Joel Grind as the main force behind the great band
TOXIC HOLOCAUST. This was originally going to be a new TOXIC HOLOCAUST
release, but Joel felt it was not in the right form of TOXIC HOLOCAUST, because that
band has become a full fledge band over the years, instead of him doing everything. The
other reason is that this album is sort of a different direction than TOXIC HOLOCAUST.
This YELLOWGOAT band is done in the spirit of the old T.H. albums though. Joel is once
again handling all the duties from all the instruments, writing, producing, mixing and
releasing. This album is more of a blackened dirty old school Rock 'N' Roll album. It is done
in the style of old school demos from back in the day that were totally D.I.Y. The music is
very raw, has tons of reverb and some times reminds me of a lot of the European demos I
would get from bands out of Greece, Germany, Italy & France. The crusty, crunchy and
noisy guitar sound is what really reminded me of this the most. I have been a big fan of
TOXIC HOLOCAUST for many years, and used to distribute one of his releases back in
the day, so I usually love everything he does. If your looking for TOXIC HOLOCAUST,
you won't find it here, but if your looking for a dirtier Black Metal version of
MOTORHEAD with harsher screaming vocals than the great Lemmy, then this is where
you want to be. Some people in the music scene underestimate the pure talent and genius of
Joel Grind, but I will forever be a fan and it's albums like YELLOWGOAT & the TOXIC
HOLOCAUST music catalog that are the reasons why. Another great project from the mind
of Joel Grind!
