Minor Nine is an up and coming alternative rock band from my own hometown, Knoxville, TN.  I love, love, love this band, and no, I'm not being biased.  Their style represents music that comes from the heart.  The vocals are soulful and beautiful, if not a bit haunting while the guitar, bass and drums provide the perfect backdrop.  You can hear the talent in each element and while many of the tracks appear somewhat simple on the surface, as you listen, you can hear a delicate mingling of sounds that ultimately layer into something more complex.  It's pretty incredible.

While many of Minor Nine's tracks stick to a more ballad-like melody, it's no reflection on their ability to rock.  The track Fading Light proves that point well.  

This band has what it takes to go straight to the top.

I really love, love, love this band too. My favorite song is Stabbed and it's so great how these guys can get a crows so into the music and then play a song that gets them to thinking. Unite, the one above, has such a good message, to me it sounds like it's saying if we Unite together than all the problems we have would be so simple to solve. But, like you said about Fading Light, they know how to rock. That song reminds me of Pantera and another song reminds me of a Red Hot Chili Peppers song. I can't wait to see them live again. Oh yeah, whoever wrote this peice did a great job finding this band. They are awesome and so is this site.
