Former Toxik members Tad Leger and Josh Christian have just posted songs on Myspace of the latest recordings of Lucertola, three and a half years after the project was originally revealed. Originally a solo project for Tad, Josh recently came on board to do bass, keys and some slide guitar.
The music in is the vein of Sabbath, Mercyful Fate, Voivod, Goblin and Fabio Frizzi, and very influenced by the films of Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento and the Blind Dead films.
According to a posting on Tartarean Desire, former TOXIK drummer Tad Leger has launched a brand new project called LUCERTOLA (Italian for "lizard"). The group's musicial style is said to be a blend of Leger's biggest influences: doom, old VOIVOD and Italian horror soundtracks (Goblin, Fabio Frizzi). Tad started out recording both guitar and drums himself, but was joined by his old BLACKENED SKY bandmate Andy Abbene and his brother Jay Abbene (WRATHCHILD AMERICA, SOULS AT ZERO) in early December 2005.
TOXIK was a New York-based melodic power/thrash metal band who released two albums for Roadrunner Records: "World Circus" (1988) and "Think This" (1989).
