Toxik Reunite

Legendary New York progressive thrashers TOXIK are back. Following the recent re-release of their two albums, TOXIK has reunited and is currently rehearsing with the lineup consisting of:

Mike Sanders - Vocals
Josh Christian - Guitar
Brian Bonini - Bass
Lou Caldarola - Drums

The band's original drummer Tad Leger is not taking part in the reunion because he's very busy with other projects - as a guitarist.

Poland's Metal Mind Productions last month released the reissues of the classic TOXIK albums "World Circus" (1988) and "Think This" (1989). Both CDs came in a new digipack edition on golden discs, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology, and are limited to a hand-numbered 2,000 copies. Each title includes two bonus tracks.

Holy crap, how come I haven't heard of this band before? There is nothing better than prog thrash, I'm listening to a few of their songs now, pretty killer.

Josh Christian still needs to thank the man who taught him to play (LOU). He needs to offer a thanks in a fashion more respectful than the meger acknowledgement he wrote on the inside of Circus. Some of us know what really went down with your solos Josh!!!!!!

as for Homage to Lou.. this from a January 2007 interview


MettleAngel: I'm glad you brought this up, because I've heard you trained with Joe Satriani?

Josh: Yeah, I don't know how this rumour got started. My guitar instructor was a local unsung hero named Lou Ubriocco. He is a local legend who trained like 100 students a week. He was a shredder factory;
