WICKEDKICK / Bio

An audible onslaught of grinding metal riffs, complimented by Melodic vocals. WICKEDKICK was formed in 1990 originally called Terra Firma (meaning solid earth or foundation) The brain child of bassist Iron Dave Bennett and original guitar player Julian Paul. Wickedkick first released indie album wickedkick/wickedkick which was to be released as titled Angel Of Mercy but after contriversy over some pending art work that did'nt make the grade was self named and history was made. Selling out home town venues and delivering the goods to local fans in style. Mindtwister was released in 1994 and was well received locally and in the U.S. tracks were played on Q107 97.7 not frequently but on many indie show cases. It was play on college radio 88.3 in kitchener and in Chicago Il more frequently.
Thus wickedkick headed to the states to play shows in the Chicago area and were welcomed with open arms after the Canucks delivered progressive metal mayham to hungry listeners. Unfortunately drummer Mic Montgomery decided to make some career changes that ended his contribution to the band. WIth no luck finding a suitable replacement the band folded in 1995.
In 2008 Iron Dave met James McCready and started writing originals together and Wickedkick was reborn, recovering old writings from the day. A third album never released has made a small contribution to the writings. The new album yet to be named is being recorded at rs sounds in brantford. More to come.....
