The group is led by Redrum (Jamal Simmons, nephew of Russell Simmons) and two other emcees named Gravedigger and Tempest. FLM was an extension of the Flatlinerz (Flatline Massive) which artists like Mayhem an OMN999 (Omen) were a part of.
Def Jam wanted to use the Flatlinerz to compete with 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 of 2014, The Flatlinerz announced via facebook, that they have reformed and are working on a new project.
