Vomit Fist Bio

Vomit Fist hails from New York City, delivering hard, fast blackened grindcore with ultra-high energy stage performances. Founders Nick Vürdoth Didkovsky and his son Leo Lurkrot Didkovsky teamed up with Malcolm Skrag the Screecher Hoyt and burst onto the underground metal scene in 2013, playing hardcore matinees, all-ages shows, DIY garage events as well as festival dates and club gigs.

They released their first EP "Forgive but Avenge" in July 2014. Featuring the apocalyptic artwork of Paolo Girardi, the CD was recorded and mixed by Nik Chinboukas at Spin Studios. Vomit Fist is proud to announce their second release, "Omnicide", which features once again the album art of Paolo Girardi, and additional art by Masato Okano. Omnicide takes Vomit Fist to new levels, and includes two tracks with guest bassists Samuel Smith (Artificial Brain, Luminous Vault, Aeviterne) and Jon Ehlers (Bangladeafy), and a bonus track composed by Alex Geisel.
