ZYKIK is an industrial electronic/metal project concieved by Simon Pettiford and featuring girlfriend Jennifer Grove.

Simon is a long time collaborator on iCompositions and has many artist pages dedicated to his work, his shaggysivirus solo page being one of his most notable, along with experimental all-out-metal project Dark Hatred, also with girlfriend Jenni.

ZYKIK draws heavily on influences of bands such as Frontline Assembly, Front 242, and Nine Inch Nails, mixing heavy, gritty beats with synth textures and soundscapes.

ZYKIK's first LP, Industries, was released here on iCompositions on 07.09.2009

"Industries is a musical interpretation of different industries and organisations worldwide, be it the sex industry, the secret service, gaming industry, transport industry, and so forth. We used this idea and coupled it with influences from our favourite industrial electronic bands to create the album."

Industries was followed by the low-key ZYKIK EP which was completed early 2011.

ZYKIK is currently working on a new, more electronic-oriented project called Artificial Evolution
