Black Tusk at the Studio at Webster Hall, in May (more by Keith Marlowe)

East Williamsburg's metal and hardcore venue of record, the Acheron, is heading down to Mexico to host a two day festival, the first annual Acheron D-Fest on February 14 and 15 at Club Bombay in Mexico City. The festival will feature thrashers Toxic Holocaust and Black Tusk at the top of the nearly twenty band bill that includes psych punks Lecherous Gaze and death/grind specialists Skullshitter. If you're more into metal than love, this could be a good way to skip out on Valentine's Day. Head over to D-Fest's Facebook page for more details. Full lineup below.

Toxic Holocaust kick off their previously discussed tour with Ramming Speed in NJ on Saturday (11/16). That tour hits NYC at Saint Vitus on November 29 with In Defence. Tickets for that show are still available.

Toxic Holocaust's new album, Chemistry of Consciousness, is out now, and you can stream it, along with the video for "Acid Fuzz" below. They're also contributing the new track "Life Is a Lie" to Decibel's flexi-disc series, and you can stream that track here.

Also playing D-Fest is Trenchgrinder, who are playing with Eyehategod and Syphilitic Lust at the actual Acheron Saturday night (11/16). The show was recently officially announced after being a "secret," and tickets are still available, but they may not be for much longer considering Eyehategod sold out Saint Vitus last night (11/14).

Check out the full D-Fest lineup, along with all Toxic Holocaust dates, video and LP stream, below...
