"The Second Coming" (2012)



Faultline presents straight-ahead loud and ballsy rock, period. Born in the heart of Richmond, VA they represent themselves with one hell of a high-energy & musically tight rock show reminiscent of the feeling taken away from large arena shows in the late 70's and early 80's, regardless of the size venue. Their sound is modern and radio ready, but by no means any less than absolutely unique.

Following their first US Tour in the Winter of 2012, supporting ORGY's "Bad Blood" Tour, they found themselves serving their sound to fans across the globe. Faultline’s sophomore release, THE SECOND COMING, is a no-frills sustained slow-burn combination of new millennium rock delivered in explosive 4-minute bites with snarling lyrics and a high-energy, blazing audio presence, while encompassing what seems to be the band’s trademarks: catchy hooks, fast rhythms and aggressive lead guitar.

Faultline is fueled by a remarkably talented quintet, including flashy lead guitarist Derek Chittenden & backed by stylish rhythm guitarist and background vocalist Jarrod Hoover, Doc Capocelli on an almost surgically controlled bass and unpretentious drummer Jon Ward. Vocalist El Jay Evans croons, shouts and growls with uncompromising range, whether it’s the deliberate and sustained howls of the lead song “Contention” or “Conflicted” to the more controlled melodies of “The Beast”, but then he shows his true pipes in the more subdued “Resentment” and "Blink". The first single "Hindsight" has been burning up YouTube with the video that accompanied it's release.

Faultline is a growling but deliberately controlled band that proves that metal rock does not have to come with excessive chugging and screaming baggage. They play unapologetic traditional American rock without any frills or gimmicks, just confident vocals, actual melodic guitar playing and a steady backend beat.
The production of “The Second Coming” is exceptional, with the talent of the members allowed to shine without gratuitous dubbing or layering. Having the goods, Faultline submits cool, commercial songwriting ability and superior musicianship, destined to be a total package metal group. No tricks, just great music.

Their combined talents have earned the group the honor of opening for such national acts as Orgy (Winter US Tour 2012), Bobaflex, All that remains, Surrender the Fall, Non Point & Apocolyptica to name a few...all of which are major label recording artists.
