Bio: Worwyk (pron. war-wick) plays authentic heavy metal combining melodic, semi-technical riffs with scorching solos and both clean and aggressive vocals. The band is strictly a studio project, composed of Tom Vitacco, a musician based in the suburbs of Chicago, and vocalist Jason Russo from Buffalo....See Full Bio
“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.”
Ask Worwyk anything...
Q: Will the older albums ever be reissued?
A: Probably not. The songs on the older albums were sung by guitarist Tom and the vocals are really bad so he has no plan to release the older albums. However, Tom and Jason are working on re-recording a few older Worwyk songs and they might release an album of these older songs redone down the road. The first old song they recorded again was Decapitator, which can be heard right here on Reverbnation!
