Bio

Born and bred in Southern California, BlackList-9 is a groove metal band founded in 2013, by drummer, Lonnie Silva (Black Sheep, Impelliteri), and his son, guitarist, Kyle Silva. Writing and jamming in their garage, this father-son duo recruited local musicians and formed a 4-member band. Influenced by Pantera and Alice In Chains, BlackList-9 has created a style and sound in the groove metal genre that is current yet rooted in 90’s thrash. 

As its popularity grew through 2018, BlackList-9 landed a spot supporting John 5 at the world famous Whiskey a Go Go and Accept at the wildly popular Canyon Club, in Agoura Hills, CA. 
 
With a few years of gigging and touring under its belt, the band tracked another demo in 2017, Put Our Faith in Modern Man but All We Get is Illusion, featuring “Mental Hostage.” This song secured airplay on several dozen college and Internet radio stations. In early 2018, the band was picked to support the heavy metal/mariachi band, Metalachi.  Later that year, BlackList-9’s song, “Mental Hostage,” was featured on the USA Network TV show, Shooter. 
 
When Mentally ill, Legally Sane was released , 2019 by Eclipse Records and prompted the band’s opening slots for Lita Ford (The Runaways), Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Accept and Quiet Riot.
 As 2019 came to a close, BlackList-9 finalized their band member quartet with high-octane lead singer, Max Sorg, and bruising bassist, Josh Lee May. 

Closing out 2020, Blacklist-9 is recording with award winning producer and engineer, Shawn McGhee (Hell Yeah, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Disturbed and Violet New Breed). McGhee is working with them in his acclaimed Las Vegas, Artistry Studio, where they are recording six hard hitting orginal track and one cover.
