Level Nine was one of the first local bands I ever saw and man were they awesome live. They really had a stripped down Rage Against The Machine feel but with less technicality, more chug breakdowns, and some rapping. As I got a little older and started going to more and more shows I kinda drifted away from them and got into other things, eventually just passing them off as a rap rock band. Later on, I got a copy of their demo as mine had been lost and man was I blown away. I thought about the energy they had live and how John commanded the stage when he was up there. I can look back now with fond memories and enjoy both demos. They broke up in 1997 (if I remember correctly) and had been talking to some label (Tommy Boy I think) but nothing ever happened. Joel went on to play in School For Heroes and Endo and Eddie played guitar in Darwin's Waiting Room.
