ROSETTA picture
Rosetta is a post-sludge metal band from Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, formed in 2003.

Philadelphia quartet Rosetta push the boundaries between metal, progressive rock, post-rock, space rock, and hardcore punk, providing an experimental songwriting technique filled with chaos and atmospherics.

A band whose sounds range from Pink Floydian / progressive rock sonic layering to walls of pure static ambience to crushing, sweeping sludgy riffage.

ROSETTA The Galilean Satellites

Warthur
Rosetta's The Galilean Satellites is best experienced with both the ambient and metal tracks played simultaneously - some editions come with the tracks pre-combined, otherwise you should be able to find some way to combine them if you are technically minded. Either way, I don't know what possessed the band to attempt this odd experiment of theirs - perhaps they were overly impressed by Zaireeka by The Flaming Lips? - because their full-throated, furious brand of post-metal is only enhanced with the ambient backing of the second disc tracks. An enjoyable post-metal experiment, provided you can get past the oddities of the way it was released.

Philadelphia metal-astronauts Rosetta have managed to gather quite a rave, yet underground following (even by extreme metal standards) since their founding. After hearing Wake/Lift, I understand why. "Metal for astronouts" really is a terrific way to describe the noise these four dudes create. You could of course simple label them sludge or post-metal, but bare in mind this is not another Neurosis clone. Hardcore intensity and angst, post-rock build-ups and crescendos, dreamy, tranquil moments reminiscent of shoegaze, or dream pop even - It's all here, Folks. And it really does sound unique. Hell, even the production and mixing stray from typical genre standards. It's a bit rough, the vocals seem to get buried under the guitars/ambience. That may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it works perfectly - the "distant" screams really send chills down my spine. "Wake" is probably my favourite track, and it basically sounds like a Hollywood apocalypse, but in a good way. Sure, I could describe it, but if someone got this far in the review, then he already has a vague idea of what I'm writing about. Give these guys some of the attention they so righteously deserve. If the end of the world really is near, I want this baby to be the soundtrack accompanying it. That would be one hell of an epic apocalypse.
