Today marks the release of thrash metallers HOLYCIDE’s explosive new studio album, “Towards Idiocracy.”

Today, on International Slayer Day – thrash metallers HOLYCIDE release the new studio album “Towards Idiocracy“!

This album is for fans of bands like SodomKreator and Power Trip.

Since their blistering Toxic Mutation EP back in 2015, Holycide have held the banner high for uncompromising, undiluted thrash metal – in the words of the mighty Exodus, “100% all out nothing less, aggressive relentless and mean”. Like no other band in the modern age, Holycide’s dedication to thrash is absolute and with their third full length album, Towards Idiocracy, they have created a genuine thrash masterpiece. A caustic attack on humanity’s pathetic addiction to a shallow, selfish existence, Towards Idiocracy is every bit as vehement in its unforgiving lyrical exhortations as in its rapid fire, twin guitar assault. Holycide are setting the standards for thrash in 2024!

Still bonded by blood with Xtreem MusicHolycide unleash the fistful of metal that is Towards Idiocracy (CD/LP/MC) on June 6th, 2024 – the international day of Slayer. What more fitting release date could there be for an album which is Holycide’s very own Reign In Blood? Their most intense, unyielding, inexorable album to date! 

Music for new album was recorded:

  • guitars, bass & drums at Black Night Studios (Palma de Mallorca),
  • vocals at Sanctuary Studios (Madrid).

Produced and arranged by Vicente J. Payá at Black Night Studios. All was mixed by Javier Fernández Milla at Montseny Studios (Angelus ApatridaAvulsed) and mastered by Davide Billia at MK2 Recording Studio (AntropofagusBeheaded). Vividly violent artwork was done by Daemorph Art (The Black Dahlia MurderVulvodyniaBodyfarm). Band photo by Lucretia Morti.

Prepare for detonation!
