Silk9 is a Pittsburgh PA based hard rock band that was founded in April of 2013 by Anthony
Leone and Jamie Rohr.
The” vision” of Silk9 was to “embrace” the essence of the 90’s and add an original spin
on today’s hard rock genre.
In May of 2014 the band released its first EP entitled “Exit the Pain.” Songs from the EP have
been featured on 97.7 fm, Butler PA, Adrenaline 101 internet radio, and 105.9 fm the X and 102.5 WDVE, in
Pittsburgh PA., The PAROCKSHOW.COM, 107.5 The EAgle in Wheeling WV, as well as being featured on Lou Lombardi’s, Rock n’ Roll Circus and, our favorite lady of metal, Kimmi Rudolph’s Metal Deli.
We’ve worked with some great national acts including, Lynch Mob,
Adelitas Way, The Art of Dying, Hillbilly Herald, Drowning Pool, Crobot, Skid Row and Jake E Lee’s Red dragon Cartel, as well as some of the top local bands in the area.
I’ve been playing solo acoustic music for the past three years. Born and raised in
the south hills of Pittsburgh.
Paying homage to their musical roots, Homicide Black conjures images of darkness, despair and salvation (not always in that order), telling epic tales with some songs while delivering a straightforward onslaught of crushing metal with others. The music is truly brought to life during the band’s blistering live performances that include tributes to the metal gods designed to engage the audience and introduce metal’s rich history to new fans as well as reacquainting it with those who have waited far too long for their music to return to the epic stature it once had.
Each member is a multi-instrumentalist, allowing for a truly organic writing process which is evident in the material on the band’s self-titled debut. From the dark imagery that sets the stage for “Spirits of the Dead,” “Sinner or Saint” and “Church on the Hill” to the tragedies that unfold in “Well of Souls,” Homicide Black brings to life a new dawn of metal and the drive to bring it to the metal-starved masses.
It’s hard to tell whether Frank Vieira found country music, or whether country found him, but there’s no denying it’s a perfect fit. You can hear the passion in his voice and see it in his face when he performs, from the heartfelt, “I’m Right Here”, to the everyman anthem, “Fill it Up.” Frank’s sophomore EP set to release in June reflects an impressive maturity as a songwriter and performer.
