Product Description

CD Album

Orange 9mm wowed 'em from coast-to-coast on 1996's Warped Tour, and their second album leaves little question as to why. Not to sell this riff-heavy NYC quartet short, but Tragic is twice the record anyone may have figured this relatively young group had in 'em. It is a bold combination of all the best elements of '90s rock: crunching guitar, groove-heavy rhythms, aggro rap vocals, a good dose of well-placed melody, and some well-written, hook-laden tunes.

Few groups could successfully bring together so many styles and make them sound so perfect together, but Orange 9mm do it with confidence and ease. Though all four members pull their weight equally, it is vocalist Chaka Malik, who rages through grinding crushers like "Fire in the Hole" and the title track, just as easily as he croons on groovy pop songs like "Dead in the Water" and "Kiss It Goodbye," who makes this album special. Unlike many of his throat-shredding contemporaries, Chaka possesses an amazing voice with range, control, and power, and he can do a whole lot more than scream with it.

Orange 9mm graciously deliver their latest opus at a time when loud rock has seemingly reached another dead end with the two-dimensional, directionless aggression of the Deftones and Korn. Tragic's complexity and depth thankfully give new life to a genre too focused on mere venting. Though Orange 9mm do their share of letting off steam, they also explore the entire realm of emotions without losing an ounce of intensity. --Adem Tepedelen

I have always considered Orange 9mm "my band", since few others have yet to stumble upon them. I did just that, though, through my record club, when I purchased "Driver Not Included". However, where that album was nonstop heaviness, this title spans out in numerous directions, always maintaining butt-movin', head-bangin' energy! Anyone who enjoys the "rap-metal" bands that are all the rage currently should stop at nothing to buy "Tragic". Chaka Malik knows how to do more then scream, and the production is near flawless on the disc. They put more popular bands to shame, much to the pleasure of their loyal fanbase. In short, anyone into the heavy stuff should go out and buy Orange 9mm's standout. They know how to do this kind of music the RIGHT way. Limp Bizkit my ass. - Mordeccai

This album is killer to say the least, back before "bands" like linkin park and limp biskit started exploiting, milking and driving rap-rock into the ground....this forgotten group among a few other outfits really helped build the sound in the first place. Tragic is a great cd, alot of raw energy, great guitars and catchy lyrics.They really get you pumped up! Try the title track or "fire in the hole". Awesome stuff. Too bad the band broke up....in early 2000 i beleive. But i still enjoy the music they released. If you need an album to listen to while in your room playing max payne or Halo this'll go just fine!

orange 9mm has been around for a while now and not too manypeople have heard them despite the fact that theyre a great band.they blend elements of punk,hip hop,and rock while always maintaining a phat groove.if you havent heard them you should definately look into them for good underground rock.the whole album is good but my favorite tracks are fire in the hole,gun to your head,dead in the water,take you away,and failure.and if you like this cd then without a doubt go pick up "pretend im human" which is an awesome record with a rappier vibe to it and is the best release from orange 9mm in my opinion.oh well-later

I FIRST HEARD THESE GUYS ON THE ESCAPE FROM L.A. SOUNDTRACK. I SURE WISH I'D HEARD THEM EARLIER!!! THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE MOST TALENTED LITTLE KNOWN OF BAND IN AMERICA TODAY. THEIR SONGS FLOW FROM VISCIOUS METAL TO ALMOST ALTERNATIVE. THESE GUYS ARE FIXING TO BREAK OUT. THERE SONGS STICK IN YOUR HEAD TOO, UNLIKE SOME METAL BANDS. I GIVE THIS ALBUM AND THIS BAND 8 THUMBS UP.

I really like these guys. It is One of the best of the "unknown" bands out there. I heard these guys on a web page and really liked them, so what the hell, I bought the C.D. and I was amazed at how good these guys were. I love this C.D. and I have to give it the seal.

this is a great cd filled with catchy songs and riffs. this is a must buy cd for people who like to listen to music with with a heavy edge and rap beat. they have potential to make it big with songs like dead in the water, failure, kiss it goodbye and many others.

A unique and powerful band which works well cruising around the city with the windows down or flying down the freeway. Many really good songs, you can't lose.

What could have been is the story of this band. While their first full length album (Driver Not Included) was one of the best hardcore albums ever made, this one fails mainly due to the expecations created by their first album and amazing live shows in the 96-97 era.

Im not sure what caused the falling out between members, but the guitarist and bassist from the original lineup were not present touring for this album, and i wonder how much they had to do with recording most of this album. The first two tracks sound like songs from DNI, but after that the music goes south. Frankly the first two tracks are the only ones i ever go back and jam.

Its really dissapointing they had some sort of inner turmoil, because Driver Not Included was such a mammoth of an offering. I suggest anyone that is looking at this album that doesnt have DNI, go check that one out first. Youll find the two albums are so drastically different in quality its almost like listening to two different bands.

TTT for anyone who knows why the original members split. Their replacements frankly stunk....
