POZ Review: The Flatliners - Caskets Full

The latter half of 2013 has been an exciting time in The Flatliners’ camp, with the release of a split, a full-length, and now an EP, all since the month of May. Their latest EP, which takes its name from the song “Caskets Full” off of their latest LP, Dead Language,is a burst of three songs, including the aforementioned “Caskets Full,” along with an unreleased track and the band’s tribute to Tony Sly.

“Caskets Full’s” macabre but energetic nature kick-starts the EP as vocalist Chris Cresswell’s delightfully brash baritone opens the song by shouting, “Turn all your pockets inside out / Confess your love to the concrete now / All the bitter hearts set to explode / Our ringing ears never hear a sound.”  “Caskets Full” is the perfect intersection of gruff punk rock and soaring guitar leads, proving once again why The Flatliners continue to captivate audiences worldwide, while remaining true to their punk rock roots.

If “Caskets Full” stays true to the band’s punk rock roots, then “Wynford Bridge” gives a nostalgic nod to the early days of The Flatliners when their brand of ska-punk was slightly more ska-heavy than it is today.  “Wynford Bridge” features the distinct up-strumming technique so prevalent in ska, but with a kickass dose of The Flatliners’ insatiable punk rock punch.  The band pounds through the track as Paul Ramirez’ bellowing drums provide a raucous tempo that continues nonstop through the stellar track.

POZ Review: The Flatliners - Dead Language

by Zack Zarrillo - Sep 25, 2013

by Zac Lomas, edited by Erik van Rheenen

When I was a freshman in college, I took an unconventional spring break trip. Unlike my higher-brow peers who trekked as close to the equator as possible, I opted for a more modest destination, Pittsburgh. With my best friend Mooch in tow, we made our way to the Altar Bar to see Pittsburgh natives Anti-Flag play a hometown show.  However, one of my fondest memories of that show occurred during the set before Anti-Flag, in which I, eagerly moshing to The Flatliners, fell on the hardwood floor and broke my elbow. With Dead Language,The Flatliners once again release the type of raucous punk album that leads to cracked elbows, bruised ribs, and smiling faces.

Dead Language is The Flatliners’ third album on Fat Wreck Chords, and this partnership is truly a match made in heaven, as the Ontario natives continue to lead the classic punk revival charge.  The album opener “Resuscitation Of The Year” begins with a series of high-hat hits, accompanied by a melodically charged guitar lick, after which all hell breaks loose and the band crashes into a blistering punk beat, ramping up the BPMs to borderline insane levels.  The songs acts as a proverbial kick-start to the album, warning listeners that nowhere in the past three years since Cavalcade was released did they decide to slow down.  The song ends with the overtly Canadian line “Here goes nothing, eh?” that appears to be taken from either the infamous Trailer Park Boys television show or the annals of Bob and Doug MacKenzie.

“Bury Me,” “Birds Of England,” and “Drown In Blood” pick up right where “Resuscitation Of The Year” ends, with vocalist Chris Cresswell’s unmistakable voice dominating the majority of each track.  However, it is “Sew My Mouth Shut,” the album’s fifth track that really illustrates the band’s potential.  With Cresswell’s passionate voice churning out the words “Sew my mouth shut so I can’t even breathe, what will life be like without me?”the song hits a note of self-deprecation that contrasts the upbeat nature of Cresswell and Scott Brigham’s guitar handiwork.
