FLOURISHING on BrooklynVegan

BrooklynVegan is now streaming "The Petrifaction Lottery", a song off New York City trio Flourishing's new EP, Intersubjectivity.

"Flourishing's brand of death metal approaches early Broadrick-ian heights... The new EP clearly shows the band's impressive death metal chops combined with noisy Godflesh-style dirge and purge", states BrooklynVegan.

The song had its official premiere last week on Stereogum, where it was described with these words: "The punishment is so relentless and vast that it takes on the ambient qualities of the urban landscape... It is a magnificent noise like New York City itself."

A standout of the NYC scene that also includes Tombs and Pyrrhon, Flourishing have established a unique identity, layering dissonant death metal and astral melodies over a cold foundation of proto-industrial darkness.

Intersubjectivity sees its digital release on Nov 13 via The Path Less Traveled Records, with a CD release to come in early 2013.
