4.5 superbThe way of the riff | June 30th 17

Toxik's Think This is often referred to, but let's not underestimate their dynamic debut. "Heart Attack" has a killer opener that displays the guitar wizardry of John Christian and what a six-stringed mastermind he is. The drums have a bottom heavy feel to them, and the bass is audible and thick in the mix. Then there's lunatic Mike Sanders with his banshee wails and killer falsetto. This man rips compared to the more controlled falsetto of Charles Sabin (next album), and the riffs and song structures are relentless yet well crafted in delivery. "Heart Attack," "Social Overload," the title track, and "Victims" are vicious genre highlights, and World Circus is a mighty fine debut that surpasses Think This in passionate playing and an all out sense of fun. A kickass record that is melodic and accessible but also heavy and relentless to keep it from sounding cheesy and easily among the genre's best debuts.

3.5 greatAnAutopsy | September 1st 16

Everything is fantastic about this album except... the VOCALS! I mean if you like constant high pitched falsetto than this is right up your alley. I just wish they were toned down a bit because they really take a toll on your eardrums. They definitely take some getting used to but will eventually grow on you over time.

Clearly not as evolved as Think This, but still a good, hard slab of heavy metal.
