Biography

Belgium’s – and perhaps even Western Europe’s – leading crossover band is stopping by Dessel this summer. No stage is too big or small for this Antwerp-based outfit, a fact singer Wouter ‘Wally’ Verhaegen likes to illustrate by stagediving and climbing every scaffold he can find. It’s all part and parcel of a Toxic Shock show. Their most recent slab ‘Twentylastcentury’ was produced by the legendary Fleming Rasmussen and hardcore heroes as Walter Schreiffels (Gorilla Biscuits) and John Joseph (Cro-Mags) have already professed their love for the band. With such influences as Suicidal Tendencies, D.RI., Slayer, early Metallica, Testament, Exodus, Cro-Mags, etc. you know you’re in for a throat-ripping blend of metal, punk and hardcore. By the way, hit YouTube for the wonderfully absurd video for ‘Great Great Gift’, it’s mind-blowing. (#GMM22)
