Reliably informed

Middlesbrough metalcore five-piece Flatline absolutely tear the roof off with their self-titled EP. The brooding synth opening of Nemiza, Behold keeps you on tenterhooks for a minute before the vocals launch full throttle. The chorus is melodic, soaring and anthemic. They segue into the guttural growling of This Thread of Life and Febrem Somnium widens the band’s sound even further before final track Break The Cycle, warning siren and all, hits with a pounding ferocity over the melodies that could finish off the faint of heart.

The EP is so epic it gets two launch gigs, firstly at Bobiks, Newcastle on Friday 10th November and then they’ll rip it up with a hometown show at Middlesbrough Empire on Saturday 11th November.
