Congrats to Flourishing for being named one of NPR Music's Favorite New Artists of 2011. Flourishing is the one and only metal band on this diverse list of eleven artists.
"Flourishing embraces an era of undefinable music while acknowledging a rich history of extreme sound. Songs can swing from industrial grind to abstract death metal in a moment's notice, but never lose sight of their pummeling yet melodic heft. There is a lot to unpack at any one moment, but Flourishing is on the cusp of collapsing and reshaping metal simultaneously."
