FLOURISHING
THE SUM OF ALL FOSSILS
THE PATH LESS TRAVELED

Falling somewhere between industrial noise rock and avant-garde extreme metal, Flourishing meld a multitude of influences from the underground into their eight-track endeavor THE SUM OF ALL FOSSILS. Displaying a penchant for developing discordant sounds laden in the darker edge of the musical spectrum, this Big Apple squad combines technical death metal dexterity and left of center hardcore heaviness with blasts of bleak industrial metal clamor to create a pointed attack brimming over with a thrilling sense of intensity. Despite the unsettling noise continuously doled out, Flourishing leaves room in their malaise-filled compositions for spots of melody to occasionally peek through and in some cases, close the austere aggressiveness out (“As if Bathed in Excellence”). Flourishing has crafted a mix of Godflesh, Candiria, and Tombs custom-made for those who choose to descend lower than the surface of the underground allows. –Mike SOS
