Former ANNIHILATOR members Randy Rampage (vocals) and Ray Hartmann (drums) have teamed up with bassist Stu Carruthers (GRIP INC., JUST CAUSE), guitarist Ash Blue (ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) and guitarist/vocalist Kick (VERTICAL AFTER) in a brand new band called STRESS FACTOR 9. The group's musical style is described as "catchy, memorable punk-metal-urban ditties with big anthemic sing-along choruses." A 21-second rehearsal recording of STRESS FACTOR 9 is available for download at this location.

STRESS FACTOR 9 are looking to release an EP in time for a planned European tour this summer.
