Our November 1st show isn't looking too great right now. The Outer Rim cancelled our show. We are looking into switching venues and still playing that night but nothing is set at the moment. We'll hopefully have that all figured out in the next couple days and we'll be sure to update you as soon as we know what's going on with that.

I haven't posted any updates lately because I have been waiting on word about when finals will be for Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands. Unfortunately, I still don't have any information about that. Hopefully we will know more within the next week.
We still haven't seen any pictures or videos from the July 20th show. If anyone has some we would love to see them (and we may be easily persuaded to giving anyone with good/multiple pictures free merchandise in exchange).
Other than that we've just been practicing hard and writing new songs.
As soon as we have details about the finals show we may be interested in recruiting for a street team. If anyone is interested email us at OCCIDISband@gmail.com

If you were at last nights show you already know that OCCIDIS put on a great show and took it all.
Thanks to fans incredible support, OCCIDIS had the best ticket sales and got to headline the show. Even more impressive than the ticket sales was the crowd that came out. OCCIDIS had the largest turnout with the most active fans. Thanks to their support OCCIDIS won last nights Battle of the Bands and will be moving on to the finals where they will compete for studio time (more details on the show to come).
Thank you to everyone that turned out!!!
If anyone has pictures/video from the show we would love to see/post them. Please email them to OCCIDISband@gmail.com

The line up is based on ticket sales and OCCIDIS was given 100 to sell but hasn't made it there yet and there are only a few more days left before the show. They need some support from their fans.
To make the deal sweeter (sweeter than seeing this kick ass band back together on stage) Anyone that purchases 5 or more tickets will receive a free OCCIDIS shirt and a half dozen OCCIDIS stickers. Anyone that buys less than 5 tickets will get free stickers equal to how many tickets they sold (i.e. you sell 2 tickets you get 2 stickers).
To buy tickets call or text Candice 801-649-9486 or email OCCIDISband@gmail.com

PMS is about a girl that gets uteral cancer and has her uterus removed. A side effect of having it removed is that she can't have her period anymore. She gets depressed about that and feels like she is no longer a woman so when it's that time of the month she kills girls and rips them apart and lets their blood run down her legs.

This week I'll tell you a little bit about Peel.
Peel is about a man in his 30s who is mentally handicap. His father was a taxidermy and had taught him about taxidermy and told him that death wasn't the end of things but rather a new beginning.
The man accidentally poisons his parents and after they are dead he gives them their new beginning by skinning them and wearing them at dinner every night.

Also, if you guys are on MySpace join the OCCIDIS group: http://groups.myspace.com/occidisfans
The first story I'm going to tell you about is Imber.
Imber is based on Elizabeth Bathory, a Hungarian Countess that has been labelled the most infamous serial killer in Central European history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess," "Countess Dracula" and as the "Bloody Lady of Csejte."
She is believed to have murdered over 650 young women (in a 25 year period) and bathing in their blood in attempt to regain her youth.
She got her start as a murderess when one of her young servants was brushing her hair and pulled her hair. Elizabeth hit her and got blood on her hand. When she went to wipe the blood away she noticed that her skin looked younger and thought that blood was the answer to the fountain of youth and so she began torturing and killing servant girls and local peasants.
Her methods of torture are said to have been severe beatings, burning and mutilation of the victims, biting, freezing and starving to death and bad surgery.
To learn more about Elizabeth Bathory here are some links:
To hear Imber check it out on MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/occidis
OCCIDIS is looking at making a recording of their new and old songs in about two weeks so start looking for their new music online in about a month.
