Toxik  


One of the great cult technical thrash bands of the late 80's, Toxik took a complex thrash metal base and mixed in progressive influences, thanks to Josh Christian's flashy guitarwork and Tad Leger's inventive drumming. Mike Sanders' wailing vocal style took a bit of getting used to, and some felt he detracted somewhat from the band's World Circus debut, a situation rectified with new singer Charles Sabin appearing on their followup, Think This. Toxik really should have been more popular and successful than they turned out to be, perhaps a victim of the numbers game, or internal conflicts prevented them from continuing. A brief reformation took place in 2007, but that ended before making it to the studio. In early 2013 a renewed effort is underway, with Christian, Sanders, and bassist Brian Bonini looking to record and perform in the new year.
