Frequis is a five piece rock band from Phoenix, AZ. Their dark and edgy sounds are a combination of hard rock, metal and progressive rock, but the distinctive Frequis sound comes to life through the use fearless creativity, a powerful voice, a relentlessly driving rhythm section, dynamic guitar solos, and high octane live performances.
Each member of Frequis has a very different set of influences and musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz and opera to rock and progressive metal. The result is a bold new sound unlike anything you have heard before: dynamic songwriting containing soulful yet catchy melodies while still maintaining the fierceness and power of metal.
Providing the powerful 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 music 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.
