Blacklist 9 announce new album “Mentally Ill, Legally Sane” out March 22, 2019 and reveal new “Madness” music video
Southern California (January 2, 2019) – U.S. groove metal band Blacklist 9will release their debut full-length album entitled Mentally Ill, Legally Sane on March 22, 2019 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Jeff Collier, mastered by Frank Gryner (Rob Zombie, A Perfect Circle, Coal Chamber), and the album cover was designed by Prateek Mishra. The band features Lonnie Silva (Black Sheep, Impelliteri) on drums, alongside his son Kyle Silva on guitar.
Mentally Ill, Legally Sane contains eight tracks which display the band’s raw power and energy. The first single pummels fans with the pulsating “Madness” talking about corrupt career politicians. Other stand-out tracks are “Stand in Line” which tells the story of a rebel who falls for the lies of the establishment, and the title track “Legally Sane” which was written shortly after the jury delivered a guilty verdict on the trial of James Holmes.
The band have also revealed their first music video from the album for the first single “Madness”. The video was directed by ZANE, and filmed at Studios 60in Los Angeles. Watch it right now below:
“With some much negativity going on in the world today, it’s hard to know who is telling the truth” says drummer Lonnie Silva. “Believing everything you hear and see from the media without checking facts can easily drive a person to madness after a while, so it’s important to take everything with a grain of salt.”
Pre-order the album on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play, and stream the singles via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio, YouTube, and more.

10:13 Release Official Video for New Single “Beyond The Grip of Humanity”
From the mind of multi-instrumentalist/composer Neil Carter and inclusive of a guest appearance by Derek Sherinian (PLANET X), Result of an Iron Age is a bleak, futuristic soundtrack to humanity’s descent into a hellish, post-apocalyptic world. Indeed, the album’s 11 tracks form a cohesive whole, a musical journey that transcends the common constructs of depressive black metal by seamlessly incorporating progressive elements, not the least of which includes rhythmic complexity, obsidian keyboard layering, penetrating samples, and even the periodic use harmonica to create an immersive experience that twists, churns, and chills to the bone.
Carter will be performing a series of local one-man shows with him serving as drummer playing along with the album.
