Thee Flatliners Have Been Founded In 1995 By Members Of Two Of Austrias Most Wellknown Neo-Rockabilly Formations At That Time: Cadillac Rust And The Cryptkickers. Steven Foster (Bass/Vocals) & Gerhard Pertschy (Guitar) Used To Be The Core Of Cadillac Rust, Playing Modernized Covers Of Gene Vincent, Elvis But Also Some Own Material Aswell. Wolfgang Hummel Used To Be The Drummer Of The Cryptkickers (Neo 50-Ies Style) And Joined In The Craddle Of Madness. Letting This Three Inividualities Work Together, Ended Up In A Nervous And Psychotic Romance With Rockabilly, The First Release Of Thee Flatliners: Rhapsody In Black (Clcd6417)

After The Recordings Wolfgang Left The Band And A Serial Of Changes On The Drums Followed. In 1997 Mike Gr?ger Crossedthe Way Of Steve, Who Has Been Helping Out On Bass For A Friends Rockabilly Combo, That Played A Show In The Club Of Mike`S Dad. Mike Used To Be A Hardcore Drummer And Played In Austrias Most Famous Hardcore-Band: Only Attitude Counts.

They Made Friends And Arranged To Meet For A Rehearsal - And It Worked Brilliant. With This New Driving Force On The Drums And Loads Of Wicked New Ideas Thee Flatliners Were Born Anew. According To Mr.P.Paul Fenech`S Quotation: "Only The Meteors Are Pure Psychobilly", Thee Flatliners Started To Involve Different Styles And Influences Into Their Music Such As Metal, Punk, Hardcore, Gothik, Ska And The Result Can Be Heard On Thee Flatliners Second Release: Enter The Twilight (Clcd6445) - A Scenery Of Horror, Terror, Blood & Guts Packed In Flying Fast Melodical Madness Or Heart-Rendering Ballades Accompanied By An Exceptional Bassplaying, A Masterly Played Guitar And Last But Not Least A Terrifying Druming.

The World Got Perceptive And Faced The New Style With Enthusiasm And Desire On One Hand, And Refusal On The Other. Is This Blasphemy Towards Psychobilly ? - Noway! It`S Just The Result Of Three Wicked & Individual Minds Making Music Together Their Own Way! A Mini-Cd/ Picture Ep Followed In 1999: Vampires (Rycd002/Clep6462) 6 Tracks Dedicated To The Creatures Of The Night. The Sound On This Record Is Far More Polished And Bombastic, Than It Was On The Previous Releases! It?S The Result Of The Collaboration With Martin Schirenc, Singer & Guitarplayer Of Austrias Death Metal Legend "Pungent Stench", Who Did A Fabulous Job On The Mixer And Co-Produced This Record Together With Thee Flatliners.

Recently Their New Release "Pandemonium" Appeared On Crazy Love Records. It Was Recorded In Two Sessions - One With Mike On The Drums (He Left The Band In February With The Opportunity To Earn A Shitload Of Money With His Drumming) - The Other With Their New Drummer, Chris Strobl, Mike?S Merit Successor On The Drums! Looking At It In General, It?S Definitely Their Best Album So Far! The Songs Are Varied In Tempo & Style, Played With The Usual Accuracy And Once Again Carries The Trademark Of Martin Schirenc As Their Sound Engineer & Co-Producer!
Live - Thee Flatliners Are More Than Worth To Be Seen! A Bundle Of Pure & Concentrated Energy Slaps You Right Into Your Face, And Soon You?Ll Find Yourself Enthralled By Their Tuneful Wraped Up Horrorshow, Performed In The Same Deadly Pace As You Know From Their Recordings! Currently Thee Flatliners Are Working On A New Show Together With A Group Of Friends, Who Will Integrate Wicked Fire-Acts And Gory Performances To The Musical Backround Of The Band!
Get Ready For A New Monumental Sensation That Is Hard To Match..

Keep Riding The Flatline!
