Florida’s INTOXICATED premiere new video

Today, Floridian thrashers Intoxicated premiere the new video "Walled" https://youtu.be/jZv6ttW6FiM The history of Florida's Intoxicated dates back to the early '90's. Throughout the early-to-mid '90s, the band released four demos, one of which, the Drain EP, was recorded and produced by their friend Chuck Schuldiner and also featured Trevor Peres. When Obituary went on hiatus for all those years, Donald Tardy actually joined Intoxicated and played with the band for nearly four years. During that time, Andrew WK, being a huge Obituary fan, approached Donald to be in his band. As it turned out, since Donald was jamming with the Intoxicated boys at the time, Andrew WK hired all of the Intoxicated members to be his backing band, which is also why Intoxicated has taken a giant backseat for all these years. What's even more interesting is that Erik Payne, the vocalist...
