The group is led by Redrum (Jamel Simmons, nephew of Russell Simmons) and two other emcees: Gravedigger and Tempest. FLM was an extension of the Flatlinerz (Flatline Massive) which included artists Mayhem and OMN999 (Omen).
Def Jam targeted the Flatlinerz as an alternative to Gangster Rap which was dominating Rap at that time. The term "Horrorcore" is a fusion of Hardcore Hip Hop and Horror.
The video for "Live Evil" featured Redrum rhyming while hanging from a noose. The second and last video ("Satanic Verses"), features Tempest eating guts from a body, Redrum restrained with rats crawling on him, and Gravedigger rhyming on a crucifix.
In June 2014, The Flatlinerz announced via Facebook, that they have reformed and are working on a new project.
