Story behind Peel

I'm a little late getting the back story of a song out this week.

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.

Story Behind Imber

Fans of OCCIDIS might already know the lyrics to the songs (and they can be found on the OCCIDIS myspace page but not many people know the stories behind the songs so I've decided that every week I will post the backstory to the songs on here so that fans can know more about the band and about what they are telling you.

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:

Practices the past week have shown to be productive and OCCIDIS has worked on new songs and been teaching their new bassist all their old songs. Things are really coming together and their show is quickly approaching.

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.

Band merchandise is being made and printed right now and should be available in the next week or two.

OCCIDIS has a photoshoot coming up in about two weeks so look for new photos of the band around the 17th.

If anyone has questions about the band, wants me to update you on anything specific, or wants to get involved as part of the street team you may email me at
