TIGER FLOWERS + MetalSucks

With Tiger Flowers' debut LP, Dead Hymns, out tomorrow on Melotov Records, MetalSucks presents a stream of the entire album, along with this vote of approval: 

"More destructive than Stallone in all the Rambo movies combined, more raw than sushi, more intense than realizing you just jumped out of a plane but forgot your parachute, and as visceral and street-level as any hardcore release this century, Dead Hymns is truly an album that will fuck your face off."

Longtime favorites of the New York scene, finally releasing their first full-length after years of flattening crowds live, Tiger Flowers wield a desperate, earthquaking version of metallic hardcore, bathed in sadness. Invisible Oranges' recent review of Dead Hymns states, "Coalesce are their most obvious reference point but that comparison doesn't tell the whole story..." Brooklyn Vegan has compared them to "elders who pushed the genre into new directions, like Deadguy, Converge, and Rorschach."

Dead Hymns was produced by Elliot Geller (Malignancy, Dim Mak) and mastered by Shane Frisby (Turmoil, Revocation).

"The best frontman in the Brooklyn scene" –MetalSucks
"Whiplash riffage and metallic, Converge-esque bile" –The A.V. Club
"Coalesce are their most obvious reference point but that comparison doesn't tell the whole story..." –Invisible Oranges
"Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde interplay of visceral chaos and brave melodies" –American Aftermath
"One of the leading lights in a burgeoning hometown scene... Tiger Flowers' brand of fiery metallic hardcore burns with passion and smarts, and never fails to deliver one massive gut punch." –Verbicide
"Magnificent of beard and tremendous of noise... A cloud of downtrodden misery hangs over all of Dead Hymns, and it's this that sets them apart. By showing their softer side, they hit harder." –Tight to the Nail
