Matt Coe: Dead Rhetoric
While the scheduled door-time for 7 pm came and went, the venue actually opened at a reasonable 7:15 pm –
the first of three local openers Wading Nine from the Hudson Valley coming to the stage at 7:30pm.
A three-piece act that opened with a taped intro piece and possess additional stage lighting and fog machine
action for maximum effect, the bassist Mike Miller also wore a gas mask throughout the set.
Musically the band go for an alternative hard rock meets grunge sound, almost sitting in that line
between 90’s Seattle scene (think Alice in Chains) and a bit of the modern side of Disturbed and
Breaking Benjamin for their influences. They delivered a solid set of material that went over surprisingly well
considering all the old-school minded people in the audience (loads of Priest, Dio, and Maiden shirts for sure).
Frank Piercy: Northeast Rock Review
The first band on the bill is band from this neck of the woods, a three piece outfit called Wading Nine.
On guitar and vocals is Eric Sagarin, with Ryan Delmolino on drums and a masked Mike Miller on bass.
Definitely a bunch of guys with drive and a unique sound, with influences ranging from Alice In Chains,
Marilyn Manson, Breaking Benjamin, Nine Inch Nails to Asking Alexandria and Disturbed. A solid set
with their own light set up. These guys are hungry.
Their music has been described as Progressive Metal/ Alternative Rock with heavy post industrial synth-lines. Influences range from bands like Asking Alexandria, Animals as Leaders, Red sun rising, BMTH, Alice in Chains, NIN, and Manson. Seamlessly blending these styles mixed with vivid metaphors and unique lyrics. Nine kicks out a fluid heavy sound with subtle nuances that creates a genre of music that is hard to define.
