IntoxXxication PARS685

In Episode 685 of the Pennsylvania Rock Show, we dive into the electrifying world of Poconos-based metal band Intoxxxication. With roots dating back to the 1980s, this band has risen from the ashes with a newly revived lineup, infusing their classic sound with a modern twist that delivers a deliciously refreshing cocktail of multi-generational metal. Intoxxxication is taking part in The Big Break IV!

Join us as we break down the intoxicating ingredients that make up Intoxxxication’s dynamic lineup. First, we add 1 part of the signature guitar styling of co-founder Mr. Smokin Tony Z, followed by 2 parts of the thunderous bass and mayhem provided by longtime friend Mr. Nex Sanctum. The mix wouldn’t be complete without the heavy-hitting drum work of Mr. Trey Wirth, and just a dash of powerful vocals by Mr. Antone Maxson. To top it all off, the hand-crafted guitar wizardry of Mr. Pat garnishes the concoction to perfection.

Intoxxxication is a metal powerhouse hailing from the Poconos, known for delivering high-powered and highly energetic performances. Their repertoire boasts a wealth of experience, having shared the stage with national acts such as Drowning Pool, Skid Row, Buckcherry, RATT, Otep, M.O.D., Whiplash, and Teeze/Roughouse. Their music has graced notable venues including Artie’s Bar & Grill, The Sherman Theater, The Gin Mill & Grill, and Dingbatz.

The band’s journey continues as they gear up to support TRAPT in August 2023 at Artie’s Bar & Grill in Frenchtown, NJ, and Josey Scott’s Saliva in September 2023 at The Gin Mill in Allentown, PA. This episode offers an in-depth look at Intoxxxication’s rich history, their influences, and their unrelenting passion for metal music.
