Flummox are a band from Tennessee that plays a mixture of stoner rock and progressive rock with some elements of jazz and doo wop and this is a review of their 2015 album "Phlummoxygen" which will be released in March by Trinidoid Records.
A very heavy stoner rock/metal sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in their musical sound along with some elements of doo wop, 50's and 60's rock being added in their musical sound.
When vocals are added into the music they are clean singing vocals and there are also some female vocals along with the guitar leads bringing in elements of garage and punk rock and in certain sections of the recording blast beats can be heard along with the vocals getting more aggressive and adding in sludge style screams.
Bass guitars on the album bring in a lot of leads and also add quite a bit of of funk to the bands musical style and as the album progresses the music starts incorporating more stoner rock jams and structures along with the music also having a 70's rock/proto metal feeling at times but done in a more modern fashion and couple of the tracks also brings in power metal style singing.
Flummox mixes a lot of musical genres in their musical style from sludge, stoner rock, progressive death metal, doo wop, jazz and a variety of other musical genres to create a very original sounding recording, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover humorous themes.
In my opinion Flummox are a very great sounding diverse stoner rock/metal band and if you are looking for something very original, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Custodian Ralph" "Planet Cancer" and "The Whispering Banshees". 8 out of 10.
