Flourishing picture
Flourishing biography
FLOURISHING are a progressive death metal band from New York, originally formed in 2003. The band went through several lineup changes before solidifying as a trio consisting of guitarist/vocalist Garett BUSSANICK, bassist Eric RIZK, and drummer Brian CORCORAN. They are currently signed to The Path Less Traveled Records and have released two EPs and one full-length LP since 2010.

FLOURISHING's sound can be described as a hybrid of a number of extreme metal genres, incorporating elements of death metal and grindcore with atmospheric and industrial tendencies and a unique sense of melody. Clear homages are made to the likes of JUSTIN K BROADRICK projects such as JESU or GODFLESH with their dense atmospheres and industrial underpinnings while pushing the confines of the death metal genre as a whole, with creative riffing and melody that brings to mind a hybrid of acts like GORGUTS and INTRONAUT. Highly recommended for fans of the more abstract side of progressive extreme metal.

The Sum of All Fossils
Flourishing Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by VOTOMS

5 stars This is totally underground and underrated. I'm cheering for these guys. Flourishing sound is some kind of Gorguts at the experimental days, but they're not a copy of anyone, their sound is unique too. It's one of the few albums/bands that makes dissonance their own and whole style of playing into rock music, playing without rules. Well, it reminds me Gigan sometimes. This is Death Metal, you know, and this one it's noisy as pigs being mutilated.

The Sum Of All Fossils. The album is loud. It sounds grindcore at times, but it takes great slow heavy passages. When I was listening to it at the first time, I felt some kind of abstract musical art. The riffage are very creative, the roars are very primitive and the grinding drums drives you breathless, running a progressive rollercoaster of unexpected raw feelings.

A high point of this album: even being a so hardcore-experimental one, it is catchy. I get it from the first time, and I really fell in love with this. It's heavier enough for me nowadays, I'm not too much into extreme music, I'm getting old. Maybe, if you try listening to it constantly, you will get bored, 'cause it's that kind of sound that is fulfilled and too much for the ears, but I hardly listening to heavy stuff actually, so it fits great.

If you are into noisy prog and technical dissonant death/grind and are looking for underground stuff like this, try Maruta.

Review by VOTOMS

4 stars I'm a very fan of dissonant, chaotic and anti-music stuff, as you can clearly notice reading my reviews. I have been following Flourishing works from the first (and great) EP, "A Momentary Sense of the Immediate World". The band focused themselves on strange songwritings, original industrial tendencies and noisy, avant-garde death metal, without sounding a Gorguts worship. I've waited for a full lenght until "The Sum of All Fossils", and I wasn't disappointed, it was one of the best moves into death metal music since I was listening to them.

Intersubjectivity is the third work from the band, and it's awesome too. Three haunting noisy tracks. Evil and experimental guitar riffage, angry basslines, and the perfect sense to use the right drums at the right time.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
