Addictive was an Australian thrash metal band, that formed in 1988. It was part of the Sydney thrash metal scene of the late 1980s. It was particularly influenced by Metallica and Sacred Reich, Nuclear Assault.
The original line-up of the band was Greg Smith (vocals and bass), Joe Buttigieg (guitar), Mick Sultana (guitar) and Matt Coffey (drums).
Its first album, Pity Of Man was released November 1989. Steve Moore (previously of Enticer) replaced Coffey on drums. Its second album, Kick 'Em Hard, was recorded in 1991 with producer Bob Daisley. The master tapes for the album went missing for over 18 months, and it was finally released in February 1993, by which time the band had fallen from favour, and while they continued to play live infrequently, Addictive finally broke up in 1996. A short time later, Moore joined Dungeon.
