Radioactive Intervention
Dr. Living Dead


High Roller Records / Soulfood


Dr. Living Dead were the right band at the right time. No doubt about that. Their self-titled album received fantastic reviews across the board. As a result the band was invited to play the prestigious Rock Hard festival and went down a storm with their brand of Metal/Crossover in the vein of early Anthrax and Suicidal Tendencies. Guitarist Dr. Toxic is not the one to complain about the reactions Dr. Living Dead's debut received: “I think we're all satisfied with it. Most of the reviews have been really positive, so that's a great thing. There aren't too many current young bands around playing this kind of music so professionally …”

Promoting the album, Dr. Living Dead played a full European tour with Evile and Portrait, followed by their legendary appearance at the Rock Hard festival in the summer of 2012. “Everything was great about that weekend, not just the show”, reminisces Dr. Toxic. “We really enjoyed that one. During the show we had a few technical problems but no one seemed to care too much and overall it was cool. A great festival indeed!”

Expectations for the second album entitled “Radioactive Intervention” (the cover artwork was again done by the band's singer Dr. Ape) will be hard to meet. But Dr. Toxic is not losing any sleep over it: “The only pressure we've felt is from ourselves. As long as we're happy with it, I think that there will be plenty of other people who will dig it as well. Some of the new songs like 'Signs From the Other Side' or 'The Meaning of Life' are a bit longer but they haven't lost the punch. We just wanted to try and make things a bit more interesting, and not put too many limits on ourselves when writing. It's still the same ol' Doc though!”

Although the first album by Dr. Living Dead was quite successful commercially, Dr. Toxic is not of the opinion that they have been able to kick-start a mini-revival of bands sounding like early Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, S.O.D. and D.R.I.: “Not really, most young bands who try to play like that just aren't doing it right unfortunately.”
