What others are saying about Detoxi’s ‘First Flesh’:
“…resembling that of classic UK Gothic Rock and Post-Punk, not unlike what you would find through the varied sounds of luminaries like Killing Joke.”- Post-Punk.com
“Taut with foreboding…projects black sinister intensity and primeval sonic punch of immense magnitude.”- Tattoo.com
Members Derek Jennings(vocals/guitar), Oscar Estrada(bass), John Crerar (drums) have been friends for years, cutting their teeth touring in bands like Catholic Spit, The Fucking Wrath, & The Return. The guys had been playing together for a couple of years as MAäSK, but when a few members moved away (including Thomas from Strike Anywhere), a new band was born.
After recording DETOXI’s debut EP “Death Of A Nation” they added the synthesizing styles of Matt Barks (Ancestors), bringing their unique style to new levels.
DETOXI’s first show was in May of 2018 opening for UK punk legends Subhumans. Since then, they have shared the stage with the likes of She Wants Revenge, T.S.O.L., & Rikk Agnew’s “Only Theater Of Pain” fitting well with both the old & the new, while also playing impressive hometown shows on their own.
