“Silk9... They brought in the sun and left behind the "whine". Through changes in line up, hard work, passion, and talented writing these guys pulled together a professional grade eargasm no doubt!"”
“Chaos in the Strip II brought a great crowd to Pittsburgh’s Altar Bar this Saturday and rocked the Strip all night long. The cold weather and threat of freezing rain didn’t scare away any of these diehard fans. There was even a bus that brought one group of fans from almost an hour away. Presented by F.U. Entertainment and Iron Element Tattoo, Chaos in the Strip II was a killer local music showcase that featured the best hard rocking bands in the Pittsburgh area. I got some decent photos considering the usual Lighting Director wasn’t at the venue. With not a whole lot to work with as far as illumination goes, most of the band members had a little bit of light on them. First to the stage was the band Silk9. While their lead singer was unable to attend the show due to illness, these guys picked up a rockin’ substitute and kicked some ass to start off the evening. With a blend of 90’s mixed in with modern hard rock, they had the crowd going through the entire set.”
“Silk9 got things going with a rousing set of strong originals like “Doesn’t Seem Right,” “Embrace” and “Tears” intermixed with covers of Papa Roach’s “Lifeline” and Skillet’s “Monster.” They had a nice turnout and were well received by the crowd. Their set closed with lead singer Jamie Rohr telling the crowd, “You guys kicked ass and it’s not even eight o’clock yet.” The night was off to a good start.”

Check them out, and if you get a chance, the CD is on Itunes..Here is the video for Tears" ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Hc9zDvNaJU
“Love this CD! Every track is very great,with hard jams and messages that may even be relevant to your life.It is highly worth the money.My personal favorite is visions Good,drop-tuning riffs and punch you in the face vocals complete this whole EP. I recommend this album to anyone who enjoys bands like Pillar, Three Days Grace, and even Steel Panther-ish riffs. 5/5”
"I love the entire EP!!! The single Tears is such a great new song and Whatcha Gonna do featuring Dr.Scary is fantastic!!! Buy this music now,you're going to love it too!!!
"Really Happy Girl Here!! Blowing the windows out of my house!!! James Roar and Anthony Leone SiLK9 is awesome!!"
"Been Jamming to Silk9's Cd for the past couple days. It rocks!!! If you haven't ordered your copy yet do your ears a favor and email firstname.lastname@example.org today!!"
“So I am sitting here listening to the first track called simply “Tears” by a band called Silk9. Never judge a track by the name (something I made sure of on all my own cd’s). First impressions are priceless (if someone is really listening, I mean after all, we are in Pittsburgh: The cover tune, classic rock, tribute band universe!). My first impression was nice effin guitar work. Choppy, no reverb and it punches like Tyson used to….Fuck it may even bite an ear or two. During the song I heard something very familiar made famous by Zakk W. from Ozzy. I could see myself doing cardio to this song (actually I will). “Visions” is a kick ass tune as well. This is very much a guitar driven song in my opinion. Damnit, I always want to have something clever to say, or make fun of something, but I really cannot find a flaw with this band. The whole CD is really well put together and these cats are real musicians. Verdict: Another great band that needs to leave this cover tune driven ”
