As the new band manager of OCCIDS I am very excited to announce to the world that OCCIDIS is back together (with some changes made in band members) and that they are getting very close to playing shows again.
For those of you that aren't familiar with OCCIDIS, they are Salt Lake City's biggest and heaviest metal band. Their songs are stories. Each track is another tale, another story, another life. Things they feel and things they've done. People, who most never know about, and may never hear about. They are the storytellers, and OCCIDIS is ready to share their stories.
OCCIDS has matured over the few years they took off and they have written new songs that are sure to blow their fans away.
I will post details about their shows as they draw nearer. I am so excited for the direction that everything is going. Shows promise to be a totally unique experience to Utah.
