Album Notes
The final Malignant CD sold recently and there are no more CDs in stock. Therefore Malignant is only available in digital download format since the CD is out of print at this point!

New Worwyk album called Shadows Black is out now - please check it out!

Worwyk (pron. war-wick) plays true heavy metal combining melodic, semi-technical riffs with scorching solos and both clean and aggressive vocals. The band is strictly a studio project, fronted by Tom Vitacco, a musician based in the suburbs of Chicago. After playing in a couple of local Chicago metal bands, Tom found he enjoyed the recording aspect more than trying to keep a band together, so he built a small home studio to record his music. Tom writes all the music for Worwyk, and handles all the mixing, mastering and artwork for the band. Since the band is a studio project only, Worwyk does not play live.

The new album, Malignant, is the highly anticipated follow up to In Solitude (2006) and features new vocalist Jason Russo (formally of Herod and Darkling). The album has 10 new songs of true metal highlighted by Jason's dynamic vocals and Tom's crunching yet melodic guitar work. Lyrically, the album continues to deal with topical themes, including medicine, religion, abuse and tragic human behavior. This is also the first Worwyk disc with no instrumental song! For fans of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Metallica, Death, Iced Earth, Kreator...or really anyone into metal!!!

Stay metal and thanks for the interest in Worwyk...

Worwyk - Malignant review
This is heavy metal with lots of influences from the eighties...old-school lovers...go for this album!

Brad at CD Baby

We were first introduced to prog-metal heavyweights Worwyk when their 'In Solitude' CD came through our doors a few years back. They were mind-blowing then, and, well, they might just have graduated to mind-annihilating. We're using "they" a bit loosely here, and it's technically inaccurate to use the term "band" to classify this project. It's really the work of one man (though he did recruit a new vocalist for this outing), Chicago's Tom Vitacco, a guy who loves to crank out the metal, but prefers to keep it in the studio. After you hear the 1-2 punch of "As You Die" and "Greed," you'll see why: the versatility and complexities harnessed in these two tracks alone are worth the price of admission. Comfortable with slow progressions as well as skull-rattling riffs, Vitacco is dexterous on the guitar and a perfectionist with the production. It all comes together on this disc, and we don't have any doubt that it'll be one of the best underground metal releases you'll hear all summer.

LOVE this CD, and the vocalist is amazing! I listen to all kinds of music, and THAT voice could definitely and easily fit into any genre.
Keep it up- can't wait for the next one!


The stuff you want!
Real heavy metal, the good stuff ! by Tom, a really gifted musician. Vocals by Jason who's equally gifted with a broad range of voice. Listen to the lyrics (can also be downloaded from the Worwyk website) and let them get to you. Tom and Jason, both's got something to say and they say it with great metal music!
Style? From Iced Earth to Metallica, Iron Maiden to... oh, what the ***! Listen to it! Worwyk has it's very own style. Who can ask for more?
My favorites? Greed and Selling Sickness, maybe. And Circle of Trust; great ballad, hits me every time I listen to it.

Worwyk - Malignant review
Sometimes we are really stunned about the material that we receive on our desk. Now and then, a totally unknown band delivers a package with an album that blows our socks off. I must admit Worwyk for having this appropriate talent. Once you have listened to all tracks, you will have the need to play it again and again. My favorites of this album are 'As You Die' (what a cool chorus, mixed with the acoustic part), 'Malignant' (title track and best arrangement on this album) and 'Selling Sickness' (what an aggression, I just love this up-speed anthem). WORWYK was a real pleasure to explore and this band and name will be etched in my brain for the next coming years. I hope that we will hear of this band in the future.
