Right Wing Conspiracy
Since the late '90s, Atlanta's Synchro Nine Factor has been a mechanized force on the local & national scene. Hardcore industrial fans have witnessed the band's performances with the likes of Chemlab, Sister Machine Gun & Zeromancer while more casual listeners might have heard snippets of songs from the band's 1999 debut CD Right Wing Conspiracy on MTV's Making the Video & elsewhere. After taking a bit of a hiatus over the past few years, Synchro Nine Factor has been busier then ever in recent months. With the departure of longtime bassist & programmer Robby Johnson, the core duo of Nelson & Jamie Hagood decided to regroup by stripping down the darkwave sound they had become known for in favor of a more traditional rock approach. But before starting this new chapter, the siblings revisited Right Wing Conspiracy & it's slightly more guitar-oriented follow-up, 2003's re[deploy], by giving the songs a remix treatment on the appropriately titled re[mix]. Released in late 2007, re[mix] features contributions from the likes of Autovon, PsiVamp, John Omen & Stan Satin. While re[mix] played up the band's electronic & industrial past, the more recent release, 20:20, heads in a direction more akin to alternative metal acts like Helmet, Prong and Alice in Chains. While samples and effects haven't been completely abandoned,songs like "Where Do We Go From Here" & "Skyscraper" seem much more metal oriented in hindsight. Joining the band onstage in 2009 are an array of veteran performers who also add to the band's hard rock approach while suporting the re release of Right Wing Conspiracy on Doogah Music / Scared Records. S9F will also be featured on the 'Alice In Chains: In the Studio book music sampler to be released Summer 2009. With a new lineup, heavy hitting new releases & a reinvigorated musical approach, Synchro Nine Factor is poised to reclaim it's dominance on the Atlanta music scene & beyond. And while the sound has changed somewhat, this revamped version of the band is likely to attract fans of the previous albums while also drawing in new listeners looking for a refreshing twist on mainstream rock. "Straight from the opening sample all the way to the fiery finale, this is an album that will eargerly find it's way into any true industrial rocker's home collection." SouthEast Performer Magazine "This Atlanta Georgia band heats things up on their debut with crunching guitars, aggressive yet emotional vocals & plenty of electronics to boot." Outburn Magazine "Synchro Nine Factor's musical diversity shines through on every track: the Faith No More-ish 'Flying Again' & the infectious 'Song For Luna' for starters." The Herald [Charlotte, NC] "Digitized keyboards, robust guitar riffs & foreshadowing vocals are just a few of the graces of S9F. A band that can be hard & moving yet discernable & intelligent.
