"COTM" (Self-produced; 2004)
Reviewed by Snidermann
When a band clicks, it hits you like a kick to the head. Rarely does that happen, but Carbon 9's "COTM" did that to me.
Right from the start, the band's techno / rap / metal combination blew me away with their sheer power and presence. "COTM" shines with a strong metal presentation that sounds like it should be on the soundtrack to a major motion picture. It's that good.
I don't know what the hell "COTM" means, but it really makes no difference - it rocks nonetheless. What really blows me away is that this band has no recording contract - this shit sounds like they've been making records for decades. Carbon 9 is one of the most robust new metal acts I have had the pleasure to witness in some time. This band is the complete package; undeniable talent, outstanding lyrical content and storytelling ability, and charisma, plain and simple. This band gets the full four chainsaws for an outstanding musical experience.
Carbon 9: Stacey Quinealty - lead vocals and programming (also handles the producing); Curtis Porche - bass; Darwin DeVitis - guitar; Jaysen Hawks - drums; Danny Cistone - backing vocals.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
