Story/Lyrics Behind Bliss

Biss is about a girl that is told by her partners that she tastes sweet and amazing. She wants to know what it's like so she tries a lot of different girls to see if they are as good as she is supposed to be but none of them are. So she tries to taste herself. She even goes as far as breaking her ribs to reach further but she still can't reach. Finally she cuts it out so she can taste what's so sweet.


I can see it in her eyes what she wants to do
To taste mine
She's not the first girl to strike my eyes but the first pursued
So she tries
"It's the best, oh, it's the best"
A drive to finish me accommodates success
Gives me a taste of the inner V
So disappointing in every way

This is my time
This is my life
I want to know how it feels
This is my time
Now it's my turn
The best blood ever spilt

Face the dream slowly sliding deep aside
So much pain but worth it
Pull this pleasure out of me
Tendons Tearing clitoris staring
I've tried tasting other girls
But vulgarities found why is mine the best?
Broken ribs to try to reach
But I still can’t seize
Why is mine the best?
I've got to think of something now
I found a knife to cut it out
I've got to pull real hard and endure the pain
So that I may lick, so that I may taste

This is my time
This is my life
I want to know how it feels
This is my time
Now it's my turn
The best blood ever spilt

Faint, no pain

Story Behind Desea

It’s been quite a long time since I posted back stories about what our songs are about so it’s about time I started doing that again. I’ll start with one of our most popular songs, Desea.

Desea is based off of the murderer Andrei Chikitilo, also known as the Red Ripper, The Rostov Ripper and the Butcher of Rostov.

Chikitilo had a pretty traumatic childhood. He was often beaten for being a chronic bed wetter, his brother Steppan was kidnapped and eaten by his starving neighbors, he witness Blitzkrieg, his father was branded as a traitor after being captured by Nazis, and in his late adolescence it became evident that he had chronic impotence.

Chikitilo committed his first murder in December 1978 when he tried to rape a nine year old girl. He was unable to achieve an erection and when the girl struggled to escape he stabbed her at least 22 times, even in the eye sockets, until she died. In the process he ejaculated.

From that Chikitilo was only able to achieve sexual satisfaction from killing people. His trademarks were sexual assault, multiple stabbings with focus on the heart, sex organs and the eye sockets. His victims were women and children, both male and female. He later said he targeted runaways, vagrants, prostitutes, the homeless, and the mentally challenged and thought he was doing society a favor by ridding it of it’s problems.

Eventually Chikitilo was caught and confessed to 53 murders. He was found guilty of 52 and was sentenced to death.

You can learn more about Chikitilo at these and other sites:

The lyrics to Desea can be found at:

We haven't posted for a while so we thought we should update our fans about what's going on.

We have been spending a lot of time in our studio space working on writing new songs. We have 4 new songs in the works that we are excited about. Some of them are different from our normal sound and it's been interesting to work on those ones.

Our new drummer, Kyle, has written a new song as well. He did everything from the drums and guitar to the lyrics. We are impressed that he is so involved and has new ideas and we are excited to see what else he comes up with. He is an amazingly talented drummer and we are glad to have him be part of our band.

We are planning to start booking some fall shows and should have information about those up in the next few weeks.

Show Cancelled

Hey OCCIDIS friends and fans,

Due to some unexpected complications and miscommunications, OCCIDIS has decided not to play at the Outer Rim this Friday night. We were looking forward to playing a show where we could have more interaction with our fans but we feel that this show is not a good fit for us at this time. We are currently scheduling another show and hope to have details about that up later this week.

If you have already bought tickets from us for the show we will be in contact with you to refund you.

Thanks for your interest and support! Nazty Habit, Ghost of Zion and other great bands will still be playing Friday so if you are interested you should still check it out!

The 500 Challenge

Hey Friends & Fans!

As you all know by now OCCIDIS is in an online contest to win either a record deal or a 25 city tour. Votes the first couple weeks were great but they seem to have dropped off this week. We've only had about 25 votes this week, which is awesome but won't get us to the top.
We think that we can make it to the 6th spot by next Friday, May 8th (we currently are in the 7th spot). But to do that we need to get as many people voting every day as possible because we are 500 votes behind. That's a lot of votes but we know how awesome our friends and family are and that their support can get us to number one.

Voting takes less than a minute and you don't have to sign up for anything. You just clink the banner below scroll to OCCIDIS and check the box. It's that easy. If you will give us a minute of your day you can help us make it big.

Vote for your favorite band

Thank you for the support! We can't do it without you!

If you haven't checked out our new track "Impatient" yet, check it out and let us know what you think. We'll have the mastered track up in the next few days along with another song or two.

Monday, April 27, 2009

New Track Posted Online

OCCIDIS has been in studio this month and while we aren't done recording we wanted to give you a sneak peak of our new stuff. We've posted "Impatient" to our page. It hasn't been mastered yet but we couldn't wait to share it with you all. Check it out at: or or on Facebook (just search OCCIDIS).

Battle of the Bands Finals Results & Updates

Hey OCCIDIS friends, family and fans!

Thanks to all of those amazing people out there that have shown their support for us, OCCIDIS once again had incredible ticket sales and was able to headline at tonights Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands Finals.

Thanks to everyone that came to see us and screamed as loud as they could, OCCIDIS WON!!!! We couldn't have done it without all of you and we appreciate everyone that helped us out by buying tickets, spreading the word about us, coming to see us, talking to us, etc. We really are only winners because you made us be. Thank you all!

It was a great show tonight and we were fortunate to play with a lot of talented musicians. It was great to see what amazing talent there is in Salt Lake and to get to socialize with other musician. Every band that performed tonight did an incredible job! We look forward to seeing more from all of the bands and maybe working with some of them in the future.
OCCIDIS would also like to thank Gorilla Productions, especially John and David for setting up the show and working with us. They have been great to work with. And thanks to the Avalon for providing the venue and putting up with us. We appreciate it.

Since we competed in the Battle of the Bands, Gorilla Music is entering our band in an online voting competition for one of two prizes: 1st being a $25,000 contract and 2nd being a 25 city North American tour. Both of those are incredible opportunities. Check out and vote for us (I believe you can vote daily) if you enjoyed tonights show and want to see us moving forward with our dream.
