Toxik were one of the many bands signed in the late eighties that played really killer technical thrash. Of course, both these albums were delete bin specials as soon as Roadrunner discovered death metal, but that's another story. Both albums are honed to a surgical edge, killer riffs and those classic air raid siren vocals, you gotta love it. One major difference here though, Toxik wrote really catchty tunes, and on all musical fronts it's apparently obvious that these guys practiced, a lot... So with all this going for it, it's a no brainer that this is one of the albums to pull out when memory lane beckons. Hell, it's even worth seeking out if you haven't heard it in a while. Socially conscious lyrics (from what I can decipher) and did I mention some killer axe and guitar work? What, you're still reading this? Go listen to the album!
