Redline – Trapped Inside
26 May 2008 // A review by JohnS
When I received Redline
's debut album I was expecting another NZ rock group, which could not make it past the pop genre, boy was I wrong.
With tight guitar rhythms though the verses and base work and drum beats linking together like it was the band’s third or forth album. I was a really impressed with the work the band has put into this album from the lead singer Chris’s lyrics and his voice synchronisation with his vocal sound belting out a heavier rock tones as well as providing a softer rock track. All in all a great album to debut with. I am looking forward to seeing them live as the songs I have heard on this album would be great sounding live.
My favourite track on this album has to be hard hitting Nothing Else
I recommend this album to anyone who likes a great rock album to get you going. If anything, crank the volume and let thy be R O C K.
Seven years ago Chris Yong was lead guitar for Tadpole, playing tracks from their double platinum debut album 'Buddhafinger' to large audiences across Australasia and supporting the likes of Killing Heidi, Living End, Placebo, Live and Sugar Ray and Regurgitator.

He left the band in 2003 and discussed the possibility of starting his own band with brother and drummer, Richard. “We had a jam together and it just felt good,” says Chris.
The pair officially formed redline six months later, with Chris stepping into the frontman role as vocalist.
