(2)Since their formation in 1997, Redline has committed themselves to making the heaviest, most aggressive music possible.
Redline combines the brutality of New Jersey hard-core with the darkness of metal and creates their own unique style. Over the last few months Redline has locked themselves in the studio, working on their upcoming CD "Portrait of a Mirror Image" as a long awaited follow up to their last full length release “ Moments of Truth”. This record will bring Redline to a new level and set them apart from the rest of the pack, proving to the world that Redline is here to stay. *Redline broke up in 2004 after recording their final album "Portrait of a Mirror Image". (3) Seven years ago Chris Yong was lead guitar for Tadpole, playing tracks from their double platinum debut album Buddhafinger to large audiences across Australasia and supporting the likes of Killing Heidi, Living End, Placebo, Live and Sugar Ray and Regurgitator. He left the band in 2003 and discussed the possibility of starting his own band with brother and drummer, Richard.
“We had a jam together and it just felt good,” says Chris. The pair officially formed redline six months later, with Chris stepping into the frontman role as vocalist. Once joined by guitarist Craig Broadbridge and bassist Nick Gregory, the band was ready to develop a distinctive brand of rock metal that “forces itself out of its comfort zone, pushes its own limits,” says Chris of the distorted guitars, loud drums and heavy bass. Success came quickly for the band, who have already opened for Evanescence and Disturbed, played at the inaugural Metal Day Out Festival, as well as supporting Blindspott and The Bleeders. Their video for Time After Time was also nominated for best independent music video at the 2005 Juice TV Music Awards. Their eagerly awaited self-funded Record, Trapped Inside, redline establishes itself as one of New Zealand’s most progressive rock metal bands.
It was produced and engineered by Paul Matthews, (Blindspott, Stylus, OpShop); mixed by Kenny MacDonald (former producer for Texas and The Proclaimers) and mastered by well known alternative Swedish producer Pelle Henricsson (Poison The Well, Refused) at Tonteknik Recordings. Blending unique and furious riffs with expressive, melodic songwriting means a track-listing that’s aggressive, hook filled and exciting. Read more on Last.fm.
