Flourishing - The Sum of All Fossils
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.
