Armed & Dangerous 1
New Mexico has long held the roots of some of music industry's most influential and successful artists, crossing genres from Bo Diddley to Randy Travis. In the millennium, Signal 99- helmed by singer/songwriter/lead guitarist Chuck Haven- has emerged as one of the region's hottest up and coming metal bands. Rounded out by Krave on Bass and Mark on Drums, rock fans and critics alike have been tuning into Signal 99 for a distinctive millennium metal sound that Metal Horizon Magazine has already praised for it's "strong vocals and intense sound." With a pallet of musical influences that range from Ministry to Korn and Coal Chamber among a host of others, Signal 99 has been hard at work carving out a solid live reputation, having shared stage-time with many of the region's biggest rock/metal acts, including ill nino, Nonpoint, Green Jelly, Ekotren, DIECAST, Suicide Holiday I.R.A.T.E., Nuumak, 13 Miles, and Psychostick. The band's growing media attention has additional included coverage in No Cover Magazine, and on such popular rock websites as CD Baby.com, Youtube.com, Moshpitarmy.com, and more. The band has also been hard at work in the studio building a recording resume that includes their debut E.P., 'Await', released in May 2006, and more recently, the release of their full-length debut LP, 'Armed & Dangerous Vol. 1', in September 2008. Signal 99 has also been featured on No Cover Magazine's 'Groupies Suck Vol. 9' Sampler CD, released in 2007, Apache Rose Publishing's 'Best New Bands Vol. 3' Radio Sampler (serviced to 1000+ radio stations), and Versailles Records' 'Strip Club Rock Vol. 1/2' comp, released nationally to stores in the spring of 2008, and recently signed a publishing pact with Apache Rose Publishing, and an indie record deal with Kandy Records. The band's considerable radio presence has included rotation on KRWN FM 92.9 - Farmington, NM; KFMQ 106.1 FM - Gallup, NM; KXXI 93.7 FM - Gallup, NM; and KSJD 91.5 FM - Cortez, CO among others, as well as 'Track of the Day' on Garageband Records for several tracks, including 'Armed & Dangerous' and 'Candy.' Looking to the future, Metal Horizon Magazine has further concluded that Signal 99, because of their unique style of playing, "have an opportunity to influence a different sound of metal to the metal scene.'
