Mike Wyatt - Genocaust - End of All Things - Studio Preview
Genocaust has been around Tucson, AZ since 1999 with Chris Maldonado always as the root vocalist. The band had gone through different members until the beginning of 2002 when they ran across a drummer (Mike Wyatt) who they felt fit the position. After Mike met with Chris and Rudy (original guitarist) he decided this was the band for him, left his high paying job and everything to make this band blow up. Well things didn't go quite as expected at first. The band recorded the 5 song demo "The End of All Things" in March 2003 and broke up shortly after, due to only having one guitarist (who had to quit due to personal reasons we will not discuss). So Mike went on to do Bound by Blasphemy with some success until him and the guitarist had a falling out. The funny thing is when the guitarist of BBB and Mike disbanded, the bassist followed Mike... and the rest is history. Mike called Chris and Brandon, told them he had a bassist with him and the reformation began. With the help of former guitarist Rudy,lots of tab and practice, Genocaust was reborn and This time to stay!
Genocaust has opened for many bands including Suffocation, Victimas, Abysmal Dawn, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, Inherit Disease, Condemned, Cerebral Bore, Behemoth, Deeds of Flesh, Vile, Decrepit Birth, Abigail Williams, Asesino, Putrid Pile, To Violently Vomit, Vulvectomy, Insidious Decrepancy and many more.
