Rosetta Profile

Philadelphia, United States (2003 – present) Philadelphia quartet Rosetta push the boundaries between metal, progressive, post-rock, space rock, and hardcore, 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 sludgey riffage.

Their first album (The Galilean Satellites) was an especially ambitious project: the goal was to record two albums of equal length (one a metal album , the other a noise/ambient/drone album), each of which could stand on its own two feet, but together would create a richer, more rewarding experience.

The band recorded the album in quadrophonic sound which lends itself well to the bands unique experiments in noise, sampling, feedback and power. The sheer amount of aural input means every listen becomes a new experience, allowing you to pick up on more and more layers within the sounds. Their next album (Wake/Lift) was a bit more restrained but for this reason, really allows the band’s cohesion to solidify and prove themselves worthy of the (mainstream of the) artsier metal world.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
