Rosetta don’t know what to name their songs

Posted by on June 12, 2015

Philly post sludge entity, Rosetta, have a new album coming up titled Quintessential Ephemera set to be released on June 22nd. That’s just around the corner but they have been kind enough to release via Metalsucks.net a track off it “(Untitled III)” to show us what they’re made of.

Post metal is distinct for being mellow and aggressive at the same time and this track contains the perfect blend of that, with a unique interpretation from each of the instruments, abrasive clean and harsh vocals from everyone, and a well-balanced pace displaying a broad set of moods and emotions, signature of their own music. The band stated:

This song got built up around Dave’s smooth arpeggio bass line, which we all agreed sounded like Young Team-era Mogwai. This is the first track in Rosetta history where every member got a real vocal credit — that choral section at the end is Dave, Eric, Matt, and BJ all singing harmonies.

The band is set to embark on a small set of shows before they dedicate some dates to celebrate the release of the album, and will continue with an European tour. You can catch this and more sweet tunes on the road at the following dates:
