ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Frequis is a five piece rock band from Phoenix, AZ. Their
dark and sludgy sounds are reminiscent of grunge, metal and progressive rock, but the distinctive Frequis sound comes to life thru the use of noise, a powerful voice, a relentlessly driving rhythm section, dynamic guitar solos, and high octane live performances. Frequis has influences ranging from 90's grunge such as Alice and Chains, Soundgarden and Nirvana to more progressive bands such as Dream Theater and Pink Floyd. The result is a bold new sound unlike anything you have heard before: dynamic songwriting containing soulful yet catchy melodies while still maintaing the fierceness and power of metal. Providing the fresh new face and voice to the band is singer/lyricist Cassie Aguiar, who fuses her operatically refined vocal prowess with a surge of post-metal screaming to command and captivate her audiences. The sound is complemented by the melodic, bluesy, yet tastefully technical lead guitar work of Chris Nastri. Brian Morris completes the Frequis sound with his clean, responsive playing and excellent sense of music and progression. Jared Johnson adds exciting melodic bass lines that bring skillful bass playing back to rock music, and underneath it all is Pete Czapiga's creative drum style which combines technical progressive drum beats with tribal melodic rhythms. Frequis hopes to bring creativity and risk back to the stale commercial rock scene that still lingers on.

it grows ....
This is an EP that will grow upon you .. at first listen you may think, well it's rocking and it's well played. But the songs don't easily stick. But wait till you heard them a few times. You'll get addicted. I don't agree with the description of dark and sludgy sound. On the contrary, it is a very clear and defined hard rocking sound, with a female voice that is neither husky nor opeartic, just clear and strong and very well fitted to the prog style of rock presented here. The most accessible song is Costume Star, with a killer guitar riff that sticks and reminded me just a little bit of Queen. Then the vocals set in with a "Whooo, ..who do you think you are ..." with such an energy and emotion you feel quite overwhelmed.
release Me and Sludgeland are masterpieces in themselves, but much more complicated song structures make these songs less accessible - this is no negative point by a long way, these songs are so much more interesting to hear and hear again because of that. besides the vocals some very virtuoso guitar work stands out, though I think it is just a little overdone sometimes. Overall, a top album, nice artwork, really happy to have found and bought it.
