This week’s #MusicMonday choice comes via Metal Ashes Radio Show host James.
James’ choice this week comes from Madrid, Spain based Holycide.
The origins of HOLYCIDE can be found back in 2004 before the new wave of Thrash Metal exploded massively when Dave Rotten (AVULSED) wanted to start up a Thrash Metal project for what he joined Vicente from GOLGOTHA on guitars. The intention, from the very beginning, was to create a very aggressive kind of Thrash, exempt of commercial touches and focusing on the intense side of this kind of music.
During this year and first half of 2016, HOLYCIDE played some local shows and wrote 9 new songs and a cover of DÉTENTE for their debut full length album “Annihilate… Then Ask!” that was finally recorded during summer 2016 and released on CD, 12″LP and Cassette formats through Xtreem Music in February 2017.
HOLYCIDE was busy playing across Spain (and one show in Italy) during 2017-2019 presenting their new album, sharing stage with bands like FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, ONSLAUGHT, D.R.I., HELSTAR, EXUMER, TRALLERY, ASOMVEL, NO RETURN, GOD DETHRONED, ALKOHOLIZER and many others. At the same time, a new album was being writing and between April-July 2019, HOLYCIDE entered again Blood Cadillac Studios to record their 2nd full length album “Fist to Face” to be released in early 2020 featuring Dave Rotten (AVULSED) on vocals with 9 new songs and a RECIPIENTS OF DEATH cover, of an intense and aggressive Thrash Metal for lovers of bands like DARK ANGEL, INFERNÄL MÄJESTY, ATROPHY, CORONER, SACRIFICE, SEPULTURA
James’ choice is the title track from the new album, Fist to Face, and as our Track Of The Week, we will play this every day at 6am, Midday, 6pm and Midnight.
