Weekly Rare Track: Antix

Artist: Antix
Song: “Everybody’s Got a Vice”
Album: Baptism of Fire [EP]

A little known band from Ottawa, Ontario, Antix was pretty big on the local scene back in the 1980s doing a mix of cover songs and original material. This is from their first release from 1986, an EP called Baptism of Fire. The song, “Everybody’s Got a Vice”, is a pretty solid example of “Flash Metal”: an off shoot of Glam Metal that, while still prim and proper where wardrobe is concerned, eschewed ballads and overt pop hooks in favour of a very melodic kind of aggression and speed. Heady stuff! Check it out!
