Suspension 9 performs an interesting and dangerous blend of German/American/Industrial rock with a alternative electronica twist, reminiscent of bands like KMFDM, Rammstein, early Marilyn Manson and The Prodigy. The Band has been playing shows in various cities, along side national and international acts like Bile, Avatar, Doyle (ex-Misfits), Gemini Syndrome, Koffin Kats, Davey Suicide and others. The first S9 demo “Prototype: Failed” was self-produced on CD-R, limited to 50 copies that consisted of three songs and was given out at the first shows. In the early Spring of 2013 the first promo album “A Greater Mechanism” was independently released by the band as 500 CD copies containing ten original songs and a cover of Jack Off Jill’s “Bruises are Back in Style.” A year later a video for one of the songs “Eyes Black and Blue” was filmed and self-produced in the summer of 2014 and made public on Youtube. As the year 2014 came to a close, Suspension 9 gained support and encouraging survival from recognition that consisted of our wickly dedicated fans, promoters, venues and radio stations. . With our aggressive stage-shows consisting of sweat, blood and fire-breathing (of course depending on the venues approval of fire) Suspension 9 is ready to bring something exciting, mesmerizing, being able to re-light the flames. Burning off the tender history of rust and bringing life back to the music industry. In June 2015 Suspension 9 has added the promotional/Management/booking talents of Carrie Gaylord- Manager/Booking agent allowing the band to further expand into the vast horizons of the music industry
These Imaginative cells created the next level of our evolutionary musical generation with Suspension 9. In the year of 2012 the Germany born lead singer Michael Malice formed Suspension 9 in the city of Colorado Springs, CO. Although, the bands wicked line-up was not fully conceived until the ending of the year 2013, the first appearance can be traced back to March 2012 as a two-piece. Suspension 9 consists now of the twisted fragments combined with Michael Malice- Vocals/Songwriter/all instruments, Scary – Bass Guitar, Zvarte Vos- Lead/Rhythm Guitar and Solaris- Beats/Samples/Keys.
