Slut Aus Nord This is probably the best and most influential experimental death metal album of the 2010s. If you haven't heard it, you are missing out on a harrowing experience and a vital part of the genre's history. Favorite track: Fossil Record.

Lorenzo Absolutely massive experimental death metal / grindcore. Starting with grounded techdeath before branching off into an avant-garde structure full of dissonance, there are moments of nearly impenetrable insanity. Kept in check by a bleak atmosphere and ever flowing song progression. There is a pain and grief to it, particularly due to the vocals.

Bringing in a palette of industrial sounds, post-hardcore, as well as noise rock into their scope further throws this album off a traditional path

Summary 04:07


"Flourishing draws from a wide, Jackson Pollock-splattered palette of death metal, grindcore, noise-rock, post-hardcore and industrial music, but its music never feels disjointed. Take a few steps back from the New York City trio's debut, The Sum of All Fossils, and the crumbling ruins fall into place, beat by bludgeoning beat." - NPR

"Flourishing’s “The Sum of All Fossils is a true achievement. It takes both skills and tremendous guts to avoid the tired tropes of a genre. Flourishing is an amorphous beast; hard to pin down, harder to classify. Let’s hope more bands follow their lead." - Cvlt Nation

Debut LP from NYC experimental deathgrinders Flourishing. Highly recommended for fans of Pyrrhon, Human Remains and Gorguts. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on 180gm black, maroon and white vinyl. Each LP comes with a free digital download of the album.
