In comparison to Fear Of God's earlier release, Within The Veil, I found Toxic Voodoo to be just an average release. It is a very heavy release musically, but something seems to be missing. This may possibly be because other than vocalist Dawn Crosby, this is an entirely differnt band. I don't feel they have the same chemistry the original band member's had.The other problem I found was in Dawn's vocals. Althogh she had some verey raspy vocals on their first release, she also had some very clear parts to the cd. The way everything was arranged between the two different vocal styles resulted in a tremendous sound for the finishe product. On this release the clearer sounding vocals are very, very few to say the least,while the harsher sound is far more prelavent. Without the mix It just dose'nt work as well.This one may work for those who enjoy the sound of todays raspy sounding bands, but for me It was a huge let down from the earlier material.

I loved Fear of God's debut record and had the chance to see them on that tour in St. Pete Florida. Never really followed up though but when I was record shopping on line a few weeks ago "Toxic Voodoo" popped up as a recommendation. I promptly ordered it with anticipation. Man, what a disappointment. The songs are just straight forward middle of the road thrash/speed metal. Nothing original or unique. The production didn't have that dark, atmospheric, end-of-days sound that was such a large part of the appeal of the first record. I listened to it a few times to see if it would grow on me but ultimately stuck it back in it's case and popped the debut in for a couple more listens. Dawn Crosby had a momentary convergence with the right guys to make a great heavy record but was unable to sustain it. It's a shame. RIP

"Toxic Voodoo" has been unjustly criticized and merits more attention from the metal public. Granted, it's more of a Dawn Crosby solo project than a real Fear of God album and it came on the heels of the brilliant "Within The Veil" that would be nearly impossible to match. But, "Toxic Voodoo" is an interesting mélange of death, thrash and doom metal with Dawn's unique tortured vocals and stays interesting throughout it's duration. There is groove aplenty and heaviness that could challenge the likes of Slayer and Testament.

Toxic Voodoo sounds like a brilliant mix of the late Dawn Crosby's enchanting and ethereal banshee-like vocals with a sound reminiscent of old Obituary. I recommend this release to anyone looking for an alternative to the cookie-cutter vocals of the female death metal niche. (Yeah you, At The Gates.) This album is an underrated classic.

I disagree with most other reviews of this album. The power and raw emotion is almost too much. And yes they had problems keeping a steady lineup, but they pulled it off! I just rediscovered both this and Veil. So happy, and very sorry to hear about what happened. RIP Dawn, you lived a hard life

R.I.P. Dawn Crosby!!! I really liked the first CD from them, but this one isn't bad. I just preferred the debut CD.
