About:

TOXIK Metal — facebook.com/TOXIKMETAL
Toxik is an American thrash metal band from Peekskill, New York. First active from 1985 to 1992, and in 2013 TOXIK reformed and are writing an album #3.
Toxik formed in 1985 and released two full-length albums, World Circus and Think This, under RoadRacer (Roadrunner) records. Both records were cult, underground successes (especially in Europe) that would establish Toxik’s longtime fan base for many years to come. During their career, the band completed several successful tours including a performance at the prestigious Dynamo Open Air in Eindhoven, Holland in 1988. This performance was released on DVD for the first time ever in 2007, along with re-issues of World Circus and Think This. In 2010 the band once again self-released another live DVD, Think Again, which contained never before seen live footage, interviews, and more.

2013 brought the announcement that Toxik would once again try to reform to release a new record. The band had tried past reunions but could never find the right drummer. Original drummer Tad Leger had moved away from playing thrash metal and was very comfortable playing in his band Blood Farmers, as well as playing guitar in his band Lucertola (also produced by Christian). Oddly enough, as luck would have it, Leger would go on “hand pick” his successor in longtime friend, Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner. Bittner, a longtime Toxik fan says, “ I met Tad at a Death Angel show back in 1990 and we’ve been friends ever since. From the moment I saw Toxik live in 1989 I was floored, and they immediately became one of my favorite metal bands of all time. I hung out with Tad a lot over the years that passed, our bands did a lot of show trading with each other, and I even took a few lessons with Tad way back in the day. For me it’s nice to preserve my friend’s legacy, as well as the band’s, and it’s great for me to be involved in this project.”

After the addition of Bittner, the band needed to round out its rhythm section, and it did that in mid – 2013 with the addition of Bill Bodily (also of Freya) on bass. Bill is a great player with exceptional skills, and has fit into the Toxik framework perfectly.

2014 Toxik started the mixing stage of their third and newest album “In Humanity.” The album will encompass everything Toxik is known for, as well as some surprises. The band is currently rehearsing for their first US shows in over 20 years, as well as for the Keep it True festival and subsequent European tour that will start in April 2014.
The rest, is history!
