"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.

However, due to the lack of commitment of Vicente, years were passing on and nothing really came out of it until in 2009 a replacement for Vicente was found in Ricardo Moreno, a friend who was live session guitarist for AVULSED during some shows and a full European tour during that year. Ricardo proved to be a good choice and everything went well, even two demo songs were written and recorded in 2010, but from one day to another, Ricardo suddenly decided to quit after summer of the same year because he wanted to concentrate on a new solo project that needed all his time and dedication.

So again, HOLYCIDE was on hibernation process until in spring 2012, a new guitarist called Miguel Bбrez joined the project. Miguel was also live session guitarist for AVULSED, but at the time he was still running his main band INNTRANCE. Songs were being slowly written until in summer 2013, Miguel asked bass player Daniel Fernбndez to join the project. Dani was long time friend of Miguel, who played in INNTRANCE some years before ('06-'10) as well as in DARK MOOR ('04-'08) and was currently playing in VIOLENT EVE although he also left that band a couple of months later due to personal reasons.

The incorporation of Dani was what definitely gave fresh motivation to HOLYCIDE and he helped to finalize the three songs already written plus two new ones. A total of 5 songs that were destined to become the first demo of the band. The intention was always to keep this as a project band using programmed drumming so the 5 songs were roughly recorded like this during autumn 2013, adding vocals to two of them in December of the same year.

Already in January 2014 we did our first rehearsal as a trio and it went really good, but some weeks later, Miguel suggested the idea of adding two new members into HOLYCIDE and making it a full band with Jorge Utrera (drums) and Salva Esteban (guitar), so in March, the very first official rehearsal of HOLYCIDE took place!! Incredible!! It took 10 years to achieve this point, something we never really wanted to go beyond than a simple project to have fun playing Thrash, now was a full band!!

So now the perspective of HOLYCIDE changed drastically and we decided to keep the two recorded songs with vocals, as the first band's demo releasing it only on cassette format just for ourselves (only 5 copies made, haha!) and then re-recording all 5 songs with the full line-up for an upcoming EP. The band is currently developing these songs, adding a cover song of DARK ANGEL that will also be included in the band's debut EP. The intention is to recording during summer and who knows… perhaps someday we'll play our first shows!!"

Дйв Роттен на вокале, да ещё и в трэш-проекте - это, как минимум, интересно!
