Members f.l.t.r.: Patrick (Lead Guitar); Holger (Vocals); Niklas (Rhythm Guitar); Carsten (Bass Guitar); Milan (Drums); 

We are Polytoxic - a metal band from Rheinhessen. We intoxicate our audience with homemade hard stuff. Our music is impulsive and full of energy and emotion!



The first meeting took place in spring 2020. After some jam sessions (at that time still without a singer) the then members Prathip, Patrick, Heiner and Niklas agreed that the chemistry was right. Quickly they started to work on their own songs. In addition, the search for a singer began. Since March 2021 the band is in complete line-up. Holger joined the band as singer and producer and Milan took over Heiner's position on drums.
After a short finding phase with the two new band members, the first 5 song ideas were worked out to finished songs. On 12.2.2022 the band gave their debut concert. The event took place as a charity event and was a great success. Besides a lot of positive feedback and a fat party, almost 500€ were raised for the solidarity fund #handforahand.
On 8.5.2022 the band released their first digital EP. This is offered on Bandcamp.
In July 2022 Prathip left the band and Carsten took over the bass.

News - January 2024

We welcome you to 2024 with a brief look back! What a beautiful and exciting year we had in 2023! Starting with the successful MetalCan in February, over our Wacken trip in August and the 3 mega concerts at the Rockfield, the Rock auf der Burg and the Porderhof. At the end of the year, the production of our first album was on the agenda. Before you know it, the next highlights are on the agenda for 2024. On 12.01. the album "Resonance to Last" and the second Metal Can Charity, on 24.02.2024, we are no less eagerly awaiting.

 

We hold the great experiences from 2023 close to our hearts, because despite all the euphoria, we never forget what a privilege it is to be able to experience this incredibly great time. Not everyone has fared as well as we have in 2023 and the past few years have shown how quickly our lives can turn upside down. The music that we feel so connected to is a valuable anchor for us and it also serves as a link in our society. It creates community not only at major events such as the "Wacken Open Air", but also at the winery around the corner. That is important! And this goes out to all those who create culture and to all those who give culture a space: Keep it up!

 

Thank you for all the support we received from you in 2023. We wish everyone a happy, successful, healthy and peaceful 2024!

Holger

Holger describes himself as a musical all-rounder. He has been playing guitar since his youth and has gained experience in several bands. Most of our lyrics come from his pen. We also have the opportunity to record and work on our songs in his recording studio. To keep things interesting between work and band projects, he also runs a multimedia studio (photography, music, design). Have a look: www.medien-schmiede.com.

Niklas

As rhythm guitarist, he is the link between the rhythm section (drums and bass) and the lead guitar, as well as the vocals. His main task is to belt out fat guitar riffs and headbang as seriously as possible. Apart from that, he takes care of everything else that has to be done in the band's everyday life with diligence and heart and soul... so you can surely manage "a big number" some day. Only he can't look angry (yet).

Patrick

As lead guitarist, Patrick is mainly responsible for the fast and technically demanding guitar parts. Since he learned his instrument from scratch at primary school, he masters this with aplomb. Patrick also played the violin in the school orchestra and was thus able to gain experience in classical music. Of course, he also brings one or two "killer riffs" to the rehearsal room - the polytoxic essence from which we craft our songs.

Carsten

Originally a drummer, Carsten decided to get a bass after moving house and finding no more room for his old drum kit. "Cobbler, stick to your last" or rather "Drummer, stick to the rhythm!". He doesn't want to know anything about distortion and all that guitar stuff, it has to rumble in your stomach and encourage you to groove along. Carsten also takes care of technical things like the homepage.

Milan

Why the drummer of a band is often called the "bus driver": He tells you where to go. And you can see immediately that Milan knows his craft. Milan originally comes from Hungary and has been making music there for years. Among other things, he worked as a drum teacher and drummed in the military orchestra. By the way, he doesn't only show good stamina at the rehearsals, but also at the band evenings. No prisoners are taken there. He has promised us Hungarian goulash next time. We are looking forward to it
