If The Dead Could Talk (S.O.A. Records)
By: Jeb Branin
The cover art for this CD ranks right up there amongst the most brutal and disturbing I've ever seen. However, instead of being used for mere shock purposes or to "gore-ify" the horrific photo is a commentary on man's inhumanity to man that is a fitting, albeit unnerving, visual symbol of the band's political grind. Hailing from Poland, TOXIC BONKERS carries on that country's reputation of producing high quality, extreme bands. With their hardcore punk roots worn proudly on their sleeves, T.B.'s lyrical messages are pointed dissertations on the state of the world and the state of the scene. The lyrics are split between Polish and English which is cool because I think more bands ought to give their native languages a try in their lyrics. (S.O.A. Records Via Oderisi da Gubbio, 67/69 00146 Roma, Italy)
