Striktnyne was formed in Newark CA in the late 90's with the desire to play metal. The wants and needs of the band have changed over the years but the passion is still fully there. Now having played with bands such as: Iron Maiden, Dio, Motorhead, Vile, Goatwhore, Cattle Decapitation, Black Dahlia Murider, Deeds of flesh and just returning from playing the Milwaukee Metalfest a large fanbase is developing. Striktnyne's heavy influences are: Children of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Dissection, Sepultura, Slayer, Metallica(old), etc... Striktnyne is one of the bay areas few extreme heavy metal acts. Striktnyne has pretty much reformed after a 2 year hiatus and now with Sid(R/Guitar-Vokills), Matt(L/Guitar-B/Vokills), K.K.Keene(Bass), and Redd(Battery-B/Vokills) Striktnyne is stronger than ever with much heavier and agressive sound, they are on their way in a new direction. Be sure to check out the website for news, shows, pics and mp3's. Keep metal EVIL!!!!!!!!!
Sid Frankosky – Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar
Sid started the band in 1997 and is the only original member left. Since then he has taken the band through many band members but has continued to keep the Striktnyne sound alive. He leads the band with his aggressive and powerful vocal sound backed by his solid guitar riffs. The Striktnyne sound is founded on Sid's ability to play heavy riffs and his energetic vocals and stage presence. Born in 1981 in the San Francisco Bay Area, he now commands a band that is coming to the forefront of the metal scene.
Matt Rogers – Lead Guitar and Backup Vocals
Matt has been with Striktnyne since 1999. He has developed into an amazing lead guitarist with solos that are both powerful and melodic. He has helped the band move up a level and definitely has added a unique touch to the Striktnyne sound. Matt has had experience with many bands in the past which has led him to his own unique style with influences from thrash, black metal, hardcore, and death metal styles. Born in 1983 in the Mountain View, Ca, he has continued to awe his fans with his fast guitar solos, and Colossal charisma.
Mark (Redd) Giddings – Drums
Redd has been with Striktnyne since 2002. In only a few months, Redd progressed from a mediocre drum player into one of the best drummers that Striktnyne has ever played with. "...The mastered tempo of Red on drums," solidifies the Striktnyne sound. His style has had influences from previous bands with punk, hardcore, sludge metal styles. Redd was born in 1981 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is now the foundation of Striktnyne's aggressive, full force sound.
Kris Keen – Bass Guitar
Kris is the most recent addition to Striktnyne joining the band in 2003. He was the missing link to Striktnyne's full sound that the band was searching for, for quite a while. Completing the band, Kris' abilities as a bassist have increased ten fold and being the youngest member in the band he's gained plenty of respect from the metal scene and from his own band members, even though he still can't get into bars. Born in 1985, the sound that Kris brings to Striktnyne should definitely not to be underestimated by any means.
