9mm Solution

For years, the fearsome foursome known as 9mm Solution has been turning heads and eradicating eardrums, leaving bloody, barely-moving masses as they tore across the Midwest’s music scene. After the physical intensity of their performance, it’s easy to see that this band is on a mission to prove themselves as one of the hardest-working stage acts in the biz.

One of the many things that has always set 9mm Solution apart from other acts has been their seemingly effortless ability to cover the spectrum of today’s heavy metal sound. With songs like “Suicide Letter” and “Below,” you get a very real sense of loss with a hint of hope. Add to that the guttural, smashing assault of “One In The Chamber” and “Belly Up,” and you have the total package.

When the band formed in 2003, it was clear that these boys had a very real goal in mind. In the spring of 2006, the band shocked fans, reintroducing themselves by taking the stage at Milwaukee’s Rave dressed in matching suits. It was around this time when SOiL bassist Tim King came into the picture and kicked things up a notch by producing the band’s music, which piqued the ears of industry greats like Ulrich Wild (Static X, Deftones, Tool), and Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Hellyeah), who also signed on to mix various projects for the band.

9mm SOLUTION released their first full length album, “One Shot… One Kill,” in the summer of 2006 through King’s Mortal Music. It gained wide recognition throughout college and mainstream radio. It wasn’t enough. The band set their sights even higher. They turned up their game, playing even more shows alongside bands like Five Finger Death Punch and Hellyeah.

These days, it’s business as usual for 9mm Solution. Whether it’s one person or entire crowds, these guys will take out anyone and leave them screaming. When these crowd killers suit up, stand back: when they’ve got a job to do, there’s not a force in the world that’s going to stop them. Just ask their fans, the Bulletheads.

This summer marks the culmination of the band’s efforts. They’ll take aim on the world when they release their second album, “The Dream Is Dead,” through Rock Ridge Music. But, rest assured, the dream is never dead with these guys.

9mm Solution is: Dave Gregor (guitars, vocals), Chad Novell (bass, vocals), Joe Thillman (drums), and Hobbes Caltous (lead vocals).
