A kickass combo rarely seen these days, with simply a bass and a drum kit, the FOSSILS twosome use their stripped-down setup to bring forward a storm of energetic, punk-infused and unpredictable metallic rock. The duo has stirred up a strong reputation as a powerful live band, ready to kick the audience in their head with a firm musical boot of metal and punk infused rock music.
FOSSILS now unleashes their second full-length, the short, sweet and genuinely pissed-off Flesh Hammer. And what a true hammer the album is, with ten noisy and ever-entertaining no-bullshit pieces of music into a dense twenty minutes on the fiery record. Flesh Hammer is immaculate FOSSILS work, wherein the band has refined their trademarks: short, creative bursts of pushing yet complex rhythms combined with thunderous riffs striving to create an environment of headbanging groove, as well as unpredictability. Always interesting and always animating to bang that head, FOSSILS pour out their unique brand of instrumental, noisy rock n' roll firmly rooted in punk, metal and hardcore.
The artwork for Flesh Hammer is a photograph of the band's logo and the album title printed in original American Beef Jerky created by a sinister tech-wiz in an abandoned factory in Philadelphia after midnight, thereby continuing the tradition for incorporating meat into their titles, visuals and artwork.
Indisciplinarian, the label founded by the metal/sludge outfit, Rising, now proudly serves tasty Flesh Hammer, the LP version pressed in a run of 300 copies worldwide, with Earsplit Distro carrying the LP for North America.
