As 2017 comes to a end ninefifteen has finished several new songs. Freeze this World and Divide and Conquer were recorded in the spring of 2017 and Marcello finished the vocal tracks in June. At that point work was started on a power ballad with the title This Time .The power ballad has a awesome arrangement and a deep meaning in lyric content as well as a groovy melody and chorus. There are two more tunes in the can that are being finished this winter.
in January 2017 ninefifteen finished Xibalba a place of fear. The song covers an old Mayan underworld god that manipulated the population of that time with tricks and fear based mind control. A "place of fear",is the the name of the underworld in K'iche' Maya mythology, ruled by the Maya death gods and their helpers. In 16th-
2016 was a awesome year for ninefifteen. Starting lst December 2015 the band welcomed our new singer Marcello Vierria from Portugal. Marcello has been inspirational with all the new material. As we continue to work with him it has become apparent that the new songs stand out in message as well as performance. Through the use of drop box and studio one at 96K we have completed 5 songs and working on a few more. In December 2016 we completed the tune called Bolillios. Its a song about world famine. Marcello is singing the chorus in 4 languages. Bolillios was posted to skunk radio in the UK with a favorable response by listeners and the review staff in december 2016. It is on a play rotation now on Skunk radio during the Indie hour. Nick Bales has started to use a trigger on the kick drum. This seems to give him a lot more control with the new songs. John Hutton picked up a AXXfx II by fractal audio systems. This processor is sweet !! ninefifteen is just not another metal band that forms into the same mold as most. With innovative thought and attention to harmony and melody you can find a cross section of poly rhythms that stand out to define the old school metal meshed to a new style of song. A song structure that defies the norm and shows the possibilities of alternate time and syncopation's. METAL YEAH !!
