Flawed by Design
Crushing percussion supported by razor-sharp riffs and epic, engaging song-structure - Have been used to describe Flawed by Design, North Carolina's latest, most furious and faith-filled metal act. Attacking the listener with a one-two punch of relentless, abrasive instrumentation and lyrical tales of salvation and Spirit, these Carolinian Crushers are anything but the dictionary's definition of flawed.
Flawed by Design have been hard at work since their inception by guitarist Tony Greer and percussionist Shane Atkinson including spending some time on the Christian metal/punk label, Rottweiler Records. The band have built a following of loyal fans by forging ahead in the trenches of the underground music scene and opening for national artist Random Hero, Southbound Fearing, Islander, 3 Years Hollow, RED and GFM. Flawed by Design's songs have been featured on the following compilations: The pack Vol.1, Metal for a fallen world Vol.1, Metal from the dragon Vol.1 and United we skate Vol.3
After a short hiatus, Flawed by Design's concrete foundation (Tony & Shane) are back with the deep, heavy bass sounds of Bobby Hoyle and the gritty, street-wise attack from vocalist Nick Ellis. While the band's dark, metal influences might evoke images of anger and hate, Flawed by Design's message is anything but. Telling tales of redemption, salvation and compassion, the quartet are a unique band who use their penchant for punishing riffs to reach out to fans of heavy music in order to spread the hope and love found in Christ. Under the expertise of producer Jamie King (For Today, Between the Buried and Me, My Children My Bride) Flawed by Design have recorded two new singles (Thief Among Kings, Keep it Steady) with their current line-up and are hard at work finishing material for their next full-length titled "Resurrection"
