Houston's #1 Metal Band
Houston's #1 Metal Band
Over the years, I had thought that since we had broken up so many years ago that there couldn't be anymore fans left. We change as we grow older. As I would soon come to find out, the music was just as clear in the minds of some of our fans as it was back in our wild days.

Formed in late 2000 by members of Houston based band's nothing, Luminol, and Rag Tag. Ryan Haislip(lead vocals) and Mark Lowe(drums), began their career with confidence and pride in the search of the music they were looking to create. The duo searched for other musicians with similar attitudes who artistically expressed themselves in a positive manner. Haislip and Lowe met with nothing’s lead vocalist and guitarist rYaN Schwerdtfeger. With a member of his current band out of town, Schwerdtfeger was itching to throw it down with open minded artist's that were in the same frame of mind as he was......writing heavy, yet from the depths of his soul.. Travis Flanagan, who had also played the bass in Luminol, knew something was going down and joined this band to throw down some new shit. Bringing the most insight of the twisted ass music business to the group is Fernando “"Junebug"” Martinez. J.R.Martinez played guitar for Rap-a-Lot Record's band Rag Tag.
We are the "black tar" heroin of hardcore music for your ears!
In a place where heavy music is dominated by the negativity and darkness found in this life, Fallen Line steps up to the plate and brings a new creative FORCE to the heavy metal genre. Self-described as “positively charged hardcore,” the five-piece out of Houston hails a mixture of heavy beats, crunching guitars, melodic overlapping vocals, soul-wrenching screams, optimistic messages, and a stage performance so intense that it will make you want to "OPEN HANDED SLAP" the shit out of that dude standing up front with the mullet, for absolutely no reason at all..... Yeah, that is what I said!!
Once the ears of all music fans open up to let Fallen Line take over their brains, they will truly understand the difference that this band brings to planet Earth!

THE ENGINE ROOM — 5/29/2005 -FALLEN LINE
The evening started at approximately 7:30 PM with these local Houston guys’ performance. The music could be classified as the middle ground between hardcore and pop-punk; there were plenty of heavy guitar riffs, and the vocals alternated between unintelligible screams and tenor singing. The singer jerked his body around in time and occasionally swung the microphone around his arm. Between songs, he attempted to talk to the audience while pacing quickly back and forth and not looking out — needless to say, he never got their full attention. Fallen Line suffered from “The Curse of the First Opening Band;” being the first of three opening bands for an act as big as Machine Head, general expectations of them were inherently low, so no matter how hard they tried, their performance was bound to be lackluster. They’ll do better next time.
[Ed. Note: We’re sorry to report that since this review was written, Fallen Line have apparently broken up…]
