Order Of Nine
Order Of Nine was founded in April 1998 under the original banner of Templar. They got their start on a Hellion Records' compilation, followed by Dwell Records'' Queensryche tribute, Rebellion. Their own debut, A Touch Of Winters Discontent (1999), got them shows in their local area opening for such acts as Flotsam And Jetsam, Overkill and Symphony X, to name just 3. Their brand of harder edged Progressive Metal would come to fruition on their sophomore effort Of Once And Future Kings (2000), featuring the membership of Michael DeGrena (vocals), Michael Chiccitt (guitar), Mike Sirera (drums) and Steve Rabinovich (bass).
