The Nine Circles Audio Thing: Vomit Fist’s Nick and Leo Didkovsky on new album “Omnicide,” the (un)importance of genre tags, Frogvasions, and much more!

Vomit Fist

After five long years Vomit Fist just released Omnicide and it seriously challenges the basis for genre tagging in the sense that they’ve taken the blackened grindcore from their debut, Forgive But Avenge, and molded it into a forward thinking art form. It’s wild, reckless abandon one second and jazzy exploration the next but even that explanation is selling its many successes short. Then there’s the fantastic lyrical narrative here that continues the story from the debut and the words themselves which are, again, their own art form. To put it another way, there’s so much to unpack with this album that a few sincere listens just won’t cut it, it deserves some serious time and attention to truly capture everything the band has to offer. So, head below for the details.

On the heels of Omnicide‘s release, guitarist Nick Didkovsky and drummer Leo Didkovsky took some time to chat with Josh about the album’s development and how (un)important genre tags are in light of this new album. They also spend some time on Nick’s label Punos Music, the fantastic album art from Paulo Girardi, how Josh initially discovered the band, a choice cut from their debut and its lasting impression, and a whole mess of other topics. This is their conversation — jump in and take listen!
