EDITORS’ NOTES

Seattle-based death-metal troupe A Flourishing Scourge pull no punches on their punishing, blackened self-titled debut. "Tidal Waves" is an onslaught of drilling guitars and monstrous vocal barks, while the sludgy, cycloning "Onerous" and whiplash-inducing "Insatiable" are bracing in their riff-churning intensity. The group smartly deploys glimmers of restraint as well; the mournful, windswept orchestral arrangements on "Awakened" and the contemplative acoustic guitar throughout "Vacant" mitigate the sonic aggression and provide a somber tranquility.
