Summon: How did the band get started?

Jordison: The band started in December 2008, in the era were Brutal/Technical Death Metal was almost absent in Bangladeshi metal music scenario. Some of the band was there but listener always wanted to have some more extreme music. Concerts in that time Death Metal was not highlighted. So in that situation three musicians came forward Leon on riff guitar, Istiaque on Vocals and Anas on bass guitar, Homicide always had trouble with drummers because they couldn’t full fill our requirements. At the end of 2010 we found our new drummer Mim (Jordison) who can play some fucking technical stuff. To move forward Homicide had decided to have a solo guitarist to make the sound more technical. Showmik joined the band and Homicide move forward with a new level. Now this is not a Band like you are thinking we are the fucking Blood Brother family.

Summon: Where did the band name come from?
