Album Review: The Flatliners - Dead Language

24 September 2013 | 11:20 am | James Dawson

It’s the frenetic pace of Sew My Mouth Shut, Quitters and Bury Me where the band feel most at home.

With Cavalcades – an album as diverse as it was poignant, relevant and emphatic – looming ominously in the background, following up with another in a similar vein would do more injustice than good. Dead Language has grittier production, conspiring in an overall darker sound, the pop element dialled down, the band putting all the focus on brazen riffs and brash passages of wrought anxiety. First single, Drown In Blood, gives the album some initial direction, yet it's the frenetic pace of Sew My Mouth Shut, Quitters and Bury Me where the band feel most at home.
