Ninetail Deliver Half Truths & Hand Grenades

(MVD) With "Half Truths & Hand Grenades," The York, Pennsylvania-based metal monster known as Ninetail have taken their devastatingly intense variety of metal music to an entirely new level. This, their sophomore effort released by DRP Records, is faster, heavier and more technically complex than their previous release.

In anticipation of the album's national release, Ninetail toured the country on the 2008 Project Independent Showcase Tour from August 29th - November 2nd, 2008. The tour, which consisted of 58 performances in 33 different states, introduced Ninetail to metalheads all across the country, and gave the band a chance to connect with countless new fans.

Ninetail was established in the Summer of 2005. The band - with Don Belch and Chris Evan (guitars), J. William Heitmann (vocals), Griff (bass), Greg Weber (keys & samples) and Chris Appenzeller (drums) - has enjoyed a slow and steady rise to the forefront of the American underground metal scene. Having thrilled more than 200 audiences in 35 different states with its ultra-violent, high-energy live performance, Ninetail has built a fanatically loyal fan base across the United States.

With the release of their debut full-length album, "The Process of Conversion," in June of 2006, Ninetail quickly introduced the world to a crushingly brutal new brand of heavy metal, with its down-tuned, jackhammer guitar riffs, growling, hound-of-hell vocals and atmospheric, industrial-esque keyboard/sample work inspired by bands like American Head Charge, Bloodsimple, Pantera and Lamb Of God. A fervent response to the album throughout the Mid-Atlantic States prompted invitations to share the stage with many different national acts, including: Static-X, Soulfly, Chimaira, God Forbid, Mushroomhead, Devildriver, Otep, High On Fire, In This Moment, and many more.

In the Fall of 2007, the band's blistering performance at the Project Independent Pennsylvania State Invitational earned Ninetail a coveted spot alongside seventeen of the underground metal world's elite on the nationally-distributed Project Independent Volume 4 compilation CD - leading to a worldwide, online vote at www.projectindependent.net to determine the best unsigned metal act in the United States. With Ninetail's newly recorded track, "Westboro," the band was awarded the title of "2008 Project Independent Featured Artist" on January 1, 2008. These days, the band is touring like crazy in support of "Half Truths & Hand Grenades".
