“The album’s influences are so diverse, spanning the gamut from classic blues-rock to 1990s mathcore to zeitgeisty blackgaze, yet it’s all integrated together so deftly that nothing feels out of place.” — Invisible Oranges
Experimental hardcore trio SUNFLO’ER will unleash their anticipated No Hell full-length this Friday. In advance of its release, Invisible Oranges is offering up an exclusive premiere of the record in its absorbing entirety issuing of the sonic journey, “The album’s influences are so diverse, spanning the gamut from classic blues-rock to 1990s mathcore to zeitgeisty blackgaze, yet it’s all integrated together so deftly that nothing feels out of place…. SUNFLO’ER are remorseless executioners, beheading melodies and phrases mere seconds after they are introduced, yet despite the band leaping madly from progression to progression, there are plenty of head-bobbing grooves to be found within the record’s ten tracks. The songs are largely jagged and disjointed, shifting direction with an athlete’s agility, but when SUNFLO’ER decides to lay down the jams, they commit with buckets of passion.”

SUNFLO’ER‘s No Hell will be released on CD and digitally September 28th via Ottawa, Canada’s Noise Salvation Records, the label helmed in part by Fuck The Facts’ Topon Das. The fiery ten-track production was composed between July 2016 and June 2017, recorded, mixed, and mastered at Topon Das’ Apartment 2 Studio, and engineered by Scott Burniston.
No Hell preorders are currently available at the Noise Salvation Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
Forged in 2010 in Potsdam, New York, SUNFLO’ER released two EPs on their own label before signing with Magnetic Eye Records in 2015, which saw the release of their first LP, 1963. SUNFLO’ER was also featured on Magnetic Eye’s Helmet tribute, Meantime [Redux] and the forthcoming Pink Floyd tribute, The Wall [Redux].
SUNFLO’ER utilizes a multi-layered vocal delivery, over dynamic and hectic hardcore that takes its cues from the likes of Converge, La Dispute, Cursed, Circle Takes The Square, and Dangers. The CD release comes packaged in an art and lyric ‘zine, featuring collages and photos by the band, as well as written and artistic contributions from other members of the New York punk scene.
“The slow reverberation of strummed chords creates a moody feeling, but a rambunctious drum bridge leads quickly into a madhouse of spastic, twisting notes, grumbling bass tones, and wild yells…” – No Clean Singing on “Inverted Cross Tattoo”
