I know I'm late on the bandwagon, but here goes nothing. I'm going to be making some mixes just to have a bit more content on this here blog, and because... it kills time, who knows.
Holidays are here, and I have to do something.

Oddball post-punk, which owes a lot to Can and other Krautrockers. It is one strange journey through this album, at times very abstract, at others conventionally melodic. I don't have very much to say about it for some reason, but I strongly recommend it. You should have a strong reaction either way.

Everybody keeps mentioning Ulcerate in an attempt to describe these guys, but that's a little misleading. They do strive to create a large wall of sound, concentrate on texture, and generally sound like the world ending, but they approach those things from another angle. Flourishing embrace the bass-heavy characteristics of sludge whole-heartedly, which gives them an interesting vibe compared to most other death metal, and consequently, a lot of other metal in general.
Anyway, people should not be trying to compare these guys to others, as there is no point. Here is a band doing their own thing (and doing it fucking well, mind you), in a genre notorious for it's lack of originality. Death metal fans, rejoice! All hope is not lost.
