Biography

“A delightful cemetery-and-western fusion that manages to combine the heaviest, pitch-black Goth tradition with rockabilly Americana.”
—Doktor John | The Aquarian

“I think everyone will enjoy this, because we have a man, and band, capable of fusing Country and Gothic matters, like a Post-Punk/Rockabilly fusion, topped by quite superb vocals, of a calibre most bands within the scene cannot match, and although steeped in tradition the attitude and style of the music is totally modern.”
— Mick Mercer

Ninth House is a New York City band that has been playing a distinctive blend of dark rock and alternative country since it’s inception in 1998 to create their signature modern “Cemetery & Western” sound, with thought-provoking lyrics.

The band was created by singer/songwriter Mark Sinnis (bass, vocals) following the ten year run of his previous band Apostates. Mark is joined in Ninth House by former Apostates drummer Francis Xavier. N.Y.C. music scene veteran Keith Otten plays guitar.

Ninth House has four full length CDs to date. The first release in 2000, “Swim In The Silence” featured the single “Injury Home” which appeared on the Fox TV show “ANGEL”, episode “Spin The Bottle”.

In 2005, the band released their second album, “The Eye That Refuses to Blink” which featured the epic song “Forsaken Psalm”. Their third CD, “Realize And It’s Gone”, was released in June 2007, and features the Johnny Cash/Stan Jones classic “Ghost Riders In The Sky” done in the classic Ninth House “Cemetery & Western” style.

    I definitely see similarities in the "look" but theyfell is right... aside from a few tracks like Forsaken Psalm and the Ghost Riders cover... Nephilim is much more aggressive and Ninth House incorporates more of a crooning dark lounge sound.

    @ernt- I think you're confusing a sound and a look. Nephilim look like gothic cowboys, but sound nothing like this.

    Great. BTW, am I the only one being reminded of Fields of the Nephilim, not shown in the Similar artists?
