Bio
Intoxicate hails from Gothenburg, Sweden and was formed in 1988 as one of the first thrashbands in this area. Three demotapes were released and got some recognition in the worldwide underground-scene until the split-up 1991. We were asked to re-unite for a gig at Gothenburg Sound Festival in 2015, a tribute-festival for the bands that created “The Gothenburg Sound”. (Even if we wasn´t a part of that creation, we played live with these bands in the old days when they started, and therefore was asked to play with them again). So, with four out of five original members, we hit the stage again and haven´t stopped playing since then. We went for a mini-tour in the Netherlands, played some gigs in Gothenburg with Hatesphere, Pagandom, Nightrage and more. But most time has been spent to write, rehearse and record this album, “Cross Contamination”. Front cover by Raimo K. and layout by Daniel T. It´s mixed by Anders Backelin (ex-Lord Belial) and mastered by the greatest guitar player on planet earth, Andy LaRoque. Enjoy!
