You probably missed Stereotoxic's last major gig: an appearance at a Peabody's battle of the bands that ended quickly, in a rain of (unintentionally) broken equipment. Their full-length debut, The Virgin Behind Logic, has been completed but not yet released. Some of its songs have an epic feel, like Slayer covering cuts from Master of Puppets.
