When Belch and Evan decided to leave Ninetail to join local heavyweight, Spinebelt, the original version of Ninetail was officially laid to rest. Belch and Evan toured with Spinebelt – and shared the stage with the likes of Dope, Marilyn Manson, Dry Kill Logic, 3 Inches of Blood & Metal Church – until the fall of 2004, when Spinebelt suddenly decided to call it quits. Unwilling to lay their musical aspirations to rest, Belch and Evan regrouped by recruiting Heitmann (Contention League), Melton (Shattered Beneath The Shade), Gregg Weber & Griff (both Survival Theory) to form the present-day version of Ninetail. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude and a burning desire to succeed, Ninetail began its quest to revolutionize the metal world in the spring of 2005.
Since its inception, the revamped version of Ninetail has played more than 130 shows to crowds throughout Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Wisconsin, Connecticut & West Virginia – and has joined forces on stage with God Forbid, Bleed The Sky, Silent Civilian, Static-X, Mushroomhead, Soulfly, Otep, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, In This Moment, High On Fire, Goatwhore, Watch Them Die, Suicide City, 3 Inches of Blood, Dog Fashion Disco, Scars of Tomorrow, Full Blown Chaos, Soil, Brand New Sin & The Autumn Offering! During that same period of time, the band wrote and recorded its full-length debut LP, The Process of Conversion, which was released in June 2006 by Level Nine Entertainment - and replaced Max Melton with current drummer/percussionist, Chris Appenzeller, in October 2007. With no intentions of slowing down, Ninetail plans to tour endlessly in support of the album – bringing the fight for metal supremacy to as many new markets as possible… Also noteworthy is that Ninetail won the Project Independant featured artist contest earning them a Project Independent sponsored national tour during the fall of 2008. Do yourself a favor and catch a show. You won't be disappointed.
