I had the pleasure of meeting Giovanni Durst while he was still in White Wizzard. When he started running down his influences it was hard to envision him doing something a bit more thrash based. Fast forward a few years later, and Giovanni exits White Wizzard, only to form Omicida. His new band initially consisted of former White Wizzard alums lead singer Joseph Michael, and guitarist Will Wallner, along with Roy Lev Ari on Guitar and Roman Kovalik on bass. At the moment it seems as if Joseph Michael is out of the band, and they’re in the process of redoing his vocals with a new singer. You can reach out to Omicida on or ReverbNation.
Here is taste of the band, check out the track Cult Of Fear.
