freQ has once again reinvented himself and his music with a new project W!CK. freQ has teamed up with Boulder Colorado native and former member of Gravelrash Tweeze. This careful mix of guitars, electronic music, and emotional lyric content is the foundation of W!CK. This hybrid mix of sounds in conjunction with a live Multi-Media presentation makes W!CK a full audio and visual experience.
The recording and production of the new CD W!CK, titled Ideology, was an emotional and technical roller coster. Using a Pro Tools system at Famascrant Studio, freQ not only captured sounds from typical instruments such as guitar, drums, bass, and synth, but also captured and tweaked sounds from abstract devices such as can openers, children‚s toys, faucets, electric mixers, and empty bottles just to list a few. With emphasis on grooves, melodies, and multi-layering of traditional sounds and abstract sounds W!CK teases and tantalizes your ears with unique sounds that capture your attention from beginning to end.
W!CK has successfully produced a blend of visual and audio stimuli. With unique audio, Multi-Media visual, and high-energy showmanship, W!CK is a true production.

Produced by freQonavitch Saravolatz
Additional Bass by Benn Ra

to write a review


From the very moment I sampled the song 'Everything' my attention span soared to new heights. The sheer magnitude of the song captivated my senses. I continued on sampling the rest of the CD and without hesitation, immediately clicked the option to purchase it. W!ck has without a shadow of a doubt, the most intense and brutal sound to come along in a very, very, very long time! The smoothness of the lyrics combined with the rigid feedback vocals and instruments makes this cd a righteous one! Starting off, 'Selfish World' takes you straight into their war. There is no cheesy or lame introduction. W!ck throws their talents right onto the battlefield, filling you with echoes of pain, anger and insanity. It perfectly sounds out the truth that no one will ever tell you. After the following two tracks, you are already caught in a crossfire of awaiting the next brilliant track and trying to enjoy the present one. When the song 'Everything' hits, you have now fallen deep into a pit of rage that you simply cannot deny. And with that, the next track 'Had Enough' only increases such an emotional state. The rough-cut vocals and smash-mouth instrumentation blended with a very unique and acute form of sound from the mixing of the music, can only be described as....AMAZING!! Soon after, track 6 ('Falling Over') delivers a more dark twist to the angry feeling you get from this CD. It pulses with both inevitablilty and despair. Absolutely sharp!
Overall, this is the best damn CD I have heard in a long time. Its only drawback: it only contains 7 tracks. However, that feeling of disappoint will dissolve rather quickly after you are well into the 1st track. I eagerly await their next CD and have already listened to the CD about 50 times! Take my word for it, buy it, hear it, and most of all feel it! Keep up the great work guys! You are nothing short of excellence! You rock!

Vanessa.....Nebula......Michigan girls

fucking kick ass......
well for starters... we are listening to the cd right now as we type...the cd rarely leaves the cd player...wick is one of the best bands we have ever heard and are awesome people...we saw them perform at irock in detroit michigan....we ironicly were there because we traveled with another band that was playing that night.. we loved the show so much we decided to go to all of their shows they had in michigan...we had the honor of chatting with them breifly after the show at irock and and have since been awaiting another tour so we can see them play again...


I had the honor of seeing W!ck in concert at club Xanth in San Diego. Delicious, absolutly delicious! An orgasam for my ears. FreQ reeks of raw sexuality. definetly check them out, they fucking rock!


Great CD. Kept my attention from start to finish.
I picked this CD up at a W!CK concert in San Diego. These guys rock live and the CD is great. Loved the multimedia show and all of the energy the members have live.

I found this CD to be full of emotion and great licks. Totally satisfied and will tell all of my friends about W!CK.


Great songs, too short!
A good industrial metal album! Wish there were a few more songs, but this is their first effort. Reminiscent of NIN,
Sister Machine Gun, etc. Great to know that this type of music is still out there.


Great live show and CD
I purchased this CD after seeing W!CK in my home town and thinking that they are one of the best, if not the best, bands I have ever seen. You have to believe me that these guys are great. Don't just take my word for it check them out live and get this CD. Ideology is a great CD filled with emotion. Their live show is a total act. I like tracks 4 and 7 the best but every song has it's own mood and setting. Great job guys. Looking forward to your next recording.


why don't you own this album?
w!ck manage to pick up where the likes of stabbing westward and sulpher left off, and turn it into something new. it's dark, heavy and lush, with power and feeling behind the music. this album delivers a healthy dose of industrial metal right between the eyes.


I own Despotism and i LOVE it... i also got to see W!CK live in Tempe... they were really awesome... i think everyone should check them out... and i hope they come back to az for more shows!!!...
