I am so glad Thrash Metal existed before I was born because, if what we hear today was all there was, this genre wouldn't be my favorite. But thanks to bands like the recently discovered Toxik, I have an opportunity to dive into the fathomless depths of the 80's Thrash, with its countless bands and ideas they put forward. Unfortunately, just like many other not so popular but great Thrash bands, Toxik disbanded in the nineties, namely in 1992. They have reunited in 2007 though and reissued their only two albums, one which I am going to review. Ladies and gents, please welcome, World Circus.

"Panem et circenses!" Said a wise man back in the day. Nowadays it's getting more and more important. Those lucky ones who know Toxik have the pleasure of hearing the mocking explanation behind those words in a very pleasant and mind draining way. A real gem that due to its diversity and meaningful playing will never be worn out. Back to the famous quote, look at the cover. That's exactly what's happening. Well packed and suited clowns started an automated and (in the long run) self-destructive process that's causing us "Heart Attack", "Social Overload", "Pain And Misery"; "Voices" in our heads whispering to buy more! and opening a "Door To Hell" to get an outside view on the "World Circus" with gaining "47 Seconds Of Sanity". Then, an imminent return as "False Prophets" approach you via the channels of this "Haunted Earth" so we become "Victims" of the "Machine Dream".

Rating: 9 Been listening to this one a lot again. What an under-looked classic. :3

  Sadly under-looked. :/

  Vocals are crazy. Awesome album.

  Probably my second favorite album of all time. Josh Christian, their guitarist, has some insane solos, especially on the title track, and the vocals are just as good, if not better, than classic falsetto vocalists like King Diamond and Rob Halford.

  Has everything I look for in thrash. Probably the closest I've ever come to giving a thrash album a perfect 10.

It's near-perfect. That is all.

it has been re-released a couple of years ago, first by Metal Mind and a year later by Displeased. Btw go for the Displeased version because it has a lot more bonus stuff on it.

found it on Amazon for around 24 bucks!
Is there anywhere else where it's not so expensive or was I that late?
Cause if so this one is going to have a wait for a while.
