Meet The Faltering Line

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Faltering Line.

The Faltering Line, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
We formed out of Fontana, California! We are a four pieces nu-metal/heavy metal/groove metal/ metalcore whatever you want to categorize us we are many genres mixed into one atmospheric heavy brutal sound. We are comprised of Blade Horrify on vocals, Josh “The Sauceman” Paiz on bass, Matthew “The Hulk” Guzman on Drums and Christopher Nunez on guitar. We have been a band for over five years now with a self-titled EP releasing very soon. We have played a lot of our shows in “The Valley” (San Fernando, Northridge, Van Nuys) and they have given us nothing but love and support and we wouldn’t be where we were without those guys. The Faltering Line has played in LA as well and in the Inland Empire. TFL is not just any regular metal band. We are four people who don’t belong together making one sound that doesn’t fall under just any one category. We want to change the music scene. We want to reinvent it. We want to make people feel something in their bodies, their minds and in their hearts. We want to make people feel not alone. That is our mission. That is why we are doing this.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Nothing too challenging has happened yet to be honest. Just the normal struggles of getting better equipment, getting to shows, getting our first EP finished and etc. We try to be as optimistic as possible through our journey.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
Our sound. Our sound is what makes us The Faltering Line. All four of us come from very different music backgrounds but all have a love for metal and when we write we each bring our own unique touch to our songs. We want our fans and listeners to have a personal experience when listening to our music. We want people to feel something when they turn us up! We want people to feel not alone and to feel heard and related too. We put as much soul and heart into our music as much as we can.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Our first backyard show was really awesome! We got encored for our first time and people were just really digging what we were putting out! People we approaching us after our set wanting pictures and to talk to us and it felt really honoring that people were taking interest in us.
