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. Despite critical acclaim and a solid fan base, Toxik never quite reached the big time, perhaps due to internal strife or simply being a victim of the numbers game. They formally broke up in 1992 and have briefly reformed a few times since, with the most recent effort coming in early 2013.
