(2) Toy Box (http://www.myspace.com/toyboxmusic) is a post-grunge alternative metal band from Ontario, Canada, formed in 2004 by Deriek Simon (lead vocals, guitars), Carmine Mallia (drums, percussion), and Duncan McIlroy (bass, vocals). After touring across Canada in 2004?including performances at Edgefest, sharing stages with Finger Eleven, Thornley, Idle Sons, Scratching Post, Swollen Members, Rascals, and Clarknova?Toy Box rolled into the Voodoo Records studios, Canada's hottest independent label, to create a full length album. Their onstage energy is immediately addictive to anyone who has had the opportunity to catch a live performance. Likewise, this energy and massive sound has been captured in their debut album The Assasination Of... released in the fall of 2007. Beautifully crafted, poetic lyrics, razor sharp guitar riffs, groovy bass lines, beefy drum beats that would make John Bonham proud. This has been contrasted with string and piano arrangements delicately placed throughout to form a dramatic backdrop for vocals so powerful and intense your brain begs for more.
