Biography

Once described as “Class 3 Kill storm”, Rev.Nine has been combining their own brand of anthemic aggression with thoughts of betrayal, desire, religion and pain since 1996.
Rev.Nine works to expose human nature at its best and worst. Fused with influences ranging from Glassjaw to Candiria, the band has gained a fervent following from its heavy emotive metal.

Their first release, "The Issues of a Dying Butterfly" produced by Drew Mazurek (Nothingface, Gwar & Zao) received an enormous response from both fans & critics. Rev.Nine’s debut led to interviews and album reviews with magazines such as Metal Edge and Unsung Hero, as well as regular airplay on Washington, DC station DC101fm and in
2002 they made an appearance on the Vans Warped Tour in front of their hometown crowd.

In a CD review within the pages of the national publication Metal Edge Magazine, Paul Gargano wrote " Rev.Nine are living proof that the tenacity of heavy music hasn't died down, it's just gone underground. Vocals make a flip from a Phil Anselmo-inspired death rattle; and the music matches in sheer hell-raising potential. The name of the game is dynamics, and while the band may be expanding on a theme that's been done before, they are doing it with their own twist, and in this case, that makes all the difference in the world. An author by the name of "Slave" for Unsung Hero magazine wrote, " Rev.Nine plays like a Class 3 Kill storm, they are not the butterfly, they are its violent demise. Brutalizing everything in their path, the guys in Rev.Nine have cut 9 paths of destruction..."

Rev.Nine are no strangers to touring either, Rev.Nine’s biggest break came when they joined Candiria (Lakeshore records) & 36 Crazyfists (Roadrunner Records) on the last few weeks of their club tour. In August of 2002, Rev.Nine was invited to the ATLANTIS MUSIC CONFERENCE in Atlanta, GA, playing the famous club "The Masquerade." The band was also added to Otep's (Capitol Records) “Winter Warpath Tour” playing a few dates in Florida with Sworn Enemy (Stillborn Records), E Town Concrete (Ironbound Recordings) and Hemlock. In addition Rev.Nine embarked on a 3 week tour with Oregon's Kaddisfly (Hopeless Records). The bands hit the entire East Coast together, and have received amazing feed back from crowds throughout the entire Eastern seaboard.

Rev.Nine’s second self funded album titled Ghosts: was released June 27th 2006 & is generating attention from fans & media, such as Manny Malig Disc Jockey for XM Radio’s Liquid Metal…”Powerful & unyielding, Rev.Nine have evolved into a force to be reckoned with. Ghosts: will definitely haunt you!” & Aidan Gray of Smnnews.com… "With their release of "Ghosts:, Rev.Nine has effectively redefined the archetype for all crossover bands of metal and hardcore. The Virginia based act have rebuilt that bridge of heavy music and have raised the bar for unsigned artists all around the world.”

Spreading their music as far as Japan, and Europe, Rev.Nine has gained fans throughout the world, as well as establishing a strong name within the music community.
