African Holocaust is a reggae album released by Steel Pulse in July 2004. It is Steel Pulse's most recent studio album and their eleventh overall. The album features an ample guest list headlined by fellow reggae acts Damian "Junior Gong" Marley and Capleton. In this album Steel Pulse ventures further away from the dancehall persuasions apparent in their late 80's and early 90's work.

The album peaked at #9 on the 2004 Billboard Top Reggae Album charts.

The song "Born Fe Rebel" appears on the soundtrack of the game Tony Hawk's Underground 2.

The band released a music video in 2007 for the song "Door Of No Return" which was shot between Senegal and New York City. The video was produced by Driftwood Pictures Ltd.
