Rosetta


There is more than one band with the name Rosetta. 1. Philadelphia quartet Rosetta push the boundaries between post-hardcore, sludge, post-metal, progressive rock, post-rock, ambient, and space rock, with influences as diverse as Neurosis, Isis, My Bloody Valentine, Frodus, and Stars of the Lid. The band somewhat humorously self-describes its music as "metal for astronauts", and its members are very interested in astronomy and space travel.

There is more than one band with the name Rosetta. 1. Philadelphia quartet Rosetta push the boundaries between post-hardcore, sludge, post-metal, progressive rock, post-rock, ambient, and space rock, with influences as diverse as Neurosis, Isis, My Bloody Valentine, Frodus, and Stars of the Lid. The band somewhat humorously self-describes its music as "metal for astronauts", and its members are very interested in astronomy and space travel. Their first album (The Galilean Satellites, 2005) was an especially ambitious project: the goal was to record two discs of equal length (one a metal album, the other a noise/ambient/drone album), each of which could stand on its own, but played together would create a third, more intense experience.

The technique fits well with the band's unique experiments in noise, sampling, feedback and power. The sheer amount of aural input means every listen becomes a new experience, allowing the listener to pick up on more and more layers within the sounds. Their next album (Wake/Lift, 2007) was a bit more restrained, but for this reason, really allows the band's songwriting to solidify and proves them worthy of the "mainstream" of the avant-metal world. The third full-length album, A Determinism of Morality, was released in May of 2010, and featured shorter, faster songs, with a bit more attention to technical playing and compositional structure. The fourth full-length album saw a change in release strategy by the band. Released through its own bandcamp The Anaesthete was released as a 'pay what you wish' release on August 8th 2013. The band hoped that the money paid by the fans would allow them to invest in a vinyl run in the USA as a CD/Vinyl deal was in place for Europe ( Debemur Morti Productions) and Australia (Monolith).

On August 15th the band posted a facebook update on its DIY 'experiment'. The original and constant lineup: Michael Armine - vocals, sound manipulation; James Matthew Weed - guitar, violin; David Grossman - bass guitar, vocals; Bruce McMurtrie Jr. - drums.
