Being a Godflesh fan from the getgo I've been looking for similar bands today - Isis and Cult of Luna have intrigued me - however, I know nothing about this band except for the info posted here on MetalStorm. Tell me more.

I'm thinking about giving these guys a go.


BloodTears you and I have pretty similar tastes so i think you will dig these guys. Start at the beginning with "The Galilean Satellites" (the two disk mixed one, I have it if you want it) then work your way forward!

Thank you for you suggestions, my friends.

I will definitely listen to them as soon as I'm over my OSI fever. Rosetta will be my next project

Yes, has anyone? I should download it I guess, haven't seen it in the record store.

On a related note, Year Of No Light's Ausserwelt is mindblowing. Best post-shit this year.
Thanks for recommending. Really enjoying it right now

Hmm, miniscule chance I could catch the SC show. It is on a Saturday so I'll look into it. Anyone know how they are live? I can imagine it being pretty sweet.

I've been listening to A Determinism Of Morality for about a month now, and I'm really impressed. They really stand out in the atmospheric sludge (or "post-metal") scene to their advantage. The album gets a little repetitive and predictable towards the middle (Revolve and Renew especially), but the amazing closer track saves it. This is way better than anything Isis or Neurosis have done in a while.

^ Completely agree. That album doesn't get old. I'm just listening now, again.


Sad I won't be able to see then in SC this weekend. I didn't realize it's an 8 hour drive to Charleston (thought it was only 3 or 4 for some reason) and I have to work the next morning back in TN. Would have been amazing, especially with Kylesa. Next time!

"Lift (Part 3)" and "Temet Nosce" are two of my favorite Rosetta tracks. I love how they're able to take you in so many different directions at the same time without ever venturing off-road.

nice.

considering Wake/Lift is one of my favorite releases OF ALL TIME (check my top 25 list) I have a hard time picking which ones are my favorite. "Monument" has a great build up. "Red in Tooth and Claw" has sooo many emotional ups and downs. But my favorite is the whole three part "Lift" song - 14 minutes of pure post metal bedlam!

In brief: similar, better. I actually don't know Wake/Lift very well, I think I've heard it once in its entirety. I rember it being more stripped-down and straightforward whereas the debut is actually two albums that are supposed to be played simultaneously (you can find a merged rip online), one of them containing the metal and the other providing ambient soundscapes. It's pretty great, despite the gimmick.

Do it asap. Their first two albums are amazing, although I'm one of the few to argue their debut isn't their best. I prefer Wake/Lift, mostly because most of the songs on that album are more in line with being "favorites" of mine, whereas Satellites is more of an "experience", especially if you go by the two-discs-at-the-same-time process.

What about their last album? What are your thoughts on that? That's the one I have to listen to now, although I'll definitely listen to the other two as well.

If you're going to start listening to them, start from the beginning. Their most recent output left a lot to be desired - it was basically a more blunt version of Wake/Lift. The production isn't the greatest either, so you can't hear all the nuances that make their first two albums so enticing; the atmosphere isn't as approachable. I wouldn't say it's a bad album, but in comparison to their first two albums, it's not that good.

Heard some rumblings about a documentary being made as we speak. That, my friends, would be the shit. In the meantime, some nice concert footage from the summer...in HD!

Took me a while to get into them, but yeah I get what you mean. They're not like other Post Metal bands out there (Isis, Cikuta etc etc) who you could hear all year long. But so far I'm satisfied with Rosetta's work.
