9Electric – “Can You Feel This” EP (2011)
It has been my privilege several times in my life to review “new” or “upcoming” or “unsigned” bands. I loved being able to play music from bands before anyone else knew who they were while DJing for internet radio. This evening, I’m going to let 9 Electric into my brain for a bit.
Official Blurb from 9 Electric’s website:
” …the collision of electronic music with hard hitting, modern rock. In the likes of their mentors NIN, Manson, Static-X, Zombie, Pendulum, Infected Mushroom and The Prodigy, 9 ELECTRIC seamlessly bridges the gaps of heavy rock, electronic and industrial music into a fresh new sound.
The Los Angeles based quartet formed in mid 2010 with a mission to create a new sound. Vocalist, Thunderwood (formerly Ron Underwood of Opiate For The Masses) met guitarist, *M. Lopez* and drummer/producer, Micah (both formerly of MY EVOLUTION) through their mutual friend and music attorney Eric German, in early 2010. Bassist, CaseyDC (formerly of Dry Kill Logic) reconnected with singer Thunderwood (they had worked together in previous projects) through an online ad and officially joined the band in late spring.
9 ELECTRIC recently wrapped up recording with producer Mikey Doling (formerly of Snot, Soulfly and currently of Channel Zero) delivering five new songs. The debut single Destroy As You Go features guest vocals by Wayne Static (lead vocalist and guitarist of Static X).”
Songs to date available from 9 Electric’s website:
“Destroy as you Go” (featuring Wayne Static)
SeanSkull – First, the bass line in this track is astounding. Me and the bass line, I know, what else is new right? The bass line is excellent when it makes my beats want to jump off my ears, and this song has it! The song has a grungy feel to it overall. Wayne Static’s vocals are wonderful, but I’ve been a Static-X fan for a very long time. The song reminds me of Ministry with the fluctuations of sound effects and instruments from one ear to the other. The guitar solo breaking down into distortion is right up my alley. 5 of 5 Skulls
SeanSkull – This song from the start reminds me of early 90’s Front Line Assembly. Again, the use of bass in the song is AMAZING! The keyboard and synthesizer work is a melodic backdrop to the haunting vocals of “Feel This”.

“Attack Mode Anthem”
SeanSkull – This song is much more electronic based than the previous two. The vocal distortion used in the track reminds me of Tool. The breakdown in the song sounds very dirty. I feel the emotion of the song in the vocals, but for me the beat isn’t quite there to drive home the emotion that the song sparks in me. 3 of 5 Skulls
SeanSkull – Hehehehehehe, this song is perfect! A little bit of funk, awesome bass, and vocals that drive home everything. Driving to this song could be hazardous. The breakdown for the song reminds me of old White Zombie. 5 of 5 Skulls
“Fast is Too Slow”
SeanSkull – I’m hearing the Prodigy in the beginning of this song. The beat is almost too damn catchy. As the song evolves, I’m reminded of Powerman 5000. The breakdown for the song makes for a perfect interlude of slow in the midst of the speed of the rest of the song. 4 of 5 Skulls
SeanSkull Notes: Overall, the talent and effort put into these songs by 9Electric have me stumped as to why their music isn’t available to purchase outside of their live shows. If you’ve got the chance to see them live, I say go for it! I’m highly impressed with what I’ve heard from them so far, and look forward to any kind of album release that will let me spin them up on my mp3 player whenever I want!
