VOMIT FIST’s recently released debut digital EP, Forgive But Avenge, will be made available in hard copy CD format via independent release on October 28, 2014. Today, the band’s first music video for the record, specifically for the track ‘Frogmen’, is up exclusively via Metal Injection. Check it out here: http://www.metalinjection.net/
Featuring raw, in-your-face sonics, the Forgive But Avenge EP was recorded and engineered at Nik Chinboukas at Spin Studios (studio credits include Lamb of God, Testament and Gojira). The tracks rip through themes of rebirth, apocalyptic chaos, ecstatic dermal auto-excoriation, and transgressive ancient tantric poetry. Check below for download links and physical pre-order details.
Order Forgive But Avenge here:
Last year, 17-year-old metal drummer Leo “Lurkrot” Didkovsky proposed the idea of forming a blackened-grindcore band with his guitarist/composer father, Nick “Vürdoth” Didkovsky. With the later addition of fellow 18-year-old family friend and vocalist Malcolm “Skrag the Screecher” Hoyt, this connection birthed the ultra-high energy project VOMIT FIST, hailing from the depths of New York City.
VOMIT FIST have practically erupted onto the underground metal scene with their dynamic live show – playing everything from hardcore matinees and DIY garage events, to all-ages shows, festival dates and club gigs. Make sure to catch VOMIT FIST performing at Snug Harbor in New Paltz, NY on October 7th! For more info, please visit www.facebook.com/snugsnewpaltz
Each member of VOMIT FIST pulls influence from a rich musical background. Guitarist and composer Nick Didkovsky founded the avant-rock band Doctor Nerve in 1983, the metal band Häßliche Luftmasken in 2010, and was a member of the Fred Frith Guitar Quartet during its tenure. In addition, he has composed for a number of ensembles including Bang On A Can, ETHEL, and Meridian Arts Ensemble, and his Black Sabbath guitar lessons on YouTube have reached millions of viewers. Nick’s son Leo Didkovsky founded the death metal band Diabolicus, which released two records in its lifetime. Meanwhile, Singer Malcolm Hoyt is founding member of art punk band Adela and the Ucars, and is also active with Space Ass and Mucus (all bands Leo was a member of, as well), although the band collectively describes Skrag as having “crawled forth from the bleeding plasma bowels of a dying star 4.5 billion years ago”. Hey, we all come from somewhere.
