Salt Lake City, Utah's SubRosa extrapolate upon sludge, doom, and stoner rock foundations with contrasting elements drawnfrom goth, psych, indie rock, and, thanks in part to their predominantly female lineup, an almost subliminal post-riot grrrl vibe toboot. Despite roots reaching as far back as 2005, the band's full-length demo and first album, Strega, both emerged in 2008,and to mixed reviews, since SubRosa were still refining their sound and coping with lineup instability throughout, even up to thefollowing year's Swans Trapped in Ice EP. But, once founding members Rebecca Vernon (guitar, vocals) and Sarah Pendleton(violin, vocals) joined forces with new bandmembers Kim Pack (vocals), Dave Jones (bass), and Zach Hatsis (drums), SubRosareally hit their stride, producing a sophomore full-length cryptically entitled No Help for the Mighty Ones that found releasethrough leading indie metal label Profound Lore in early 2011, this time to major acclaim within the heavy metal community. « hide
