Can't believe people are rating Heritage so soon, im feeling as though ill need a lot more listens before i can decide on a rating.

But back on point, im intrigued to hear this. Will do after listening through heritage ;)

@Motiv3 i haven't rated Heritage yet. it's definitely not an immediate album, gonna require a few listens in order to get a grip on it. i like it, i'm just not sure how much...

I love Isis, The Ocean, and Intronaut, so why am I so lukewarm on Rosetta? Is it the tar-pit production? The monotone vocals? The lack of dynamic shifts? I feel like I'm missing the boat on this one.

It's a grower, kinda. It did the same thing to me with "So Warm A Solitude", and pretty much the same with ADOM.

EDIT: second listen, it's already getting fucktastic. That drumming man...

@Thanntos: look up the shoutbox in their last.fm profile. Armine proposed some girl to play in her apparently very small basement.

Fuck, i could actually ask him if it'd be possible to play in my bedroom.

That's not completely true, some Metal bands can still innovate.

However, Post-Metal, Metalcore and Thrash seem to be almost dead nowadays (with a few exceptions of course).

This track is great, almost as good as So Warm a Solitude.

Re them being boring/Isis clones, I kinda thought the same thing until I saw them play a house show a few years ago,
which is still the best show I've ever seen. They're pretty much my favourite band now.

Also, The Ocean suck.

how? they seem to playing the same "ooh spacey riffs" till fucking infinity. the only reason why the cover was interesting, cause it initially was not their song.

yeah but those spacey riffs are really good and appeal to me and lots of other people. tell me a band that do them like they do that isn't Neurosis because I just don't like them as much. :]

yeah but again - they all seem the same. whilst I don't like post-metal, I assume that I just don't get it, but with Rosetta it is like I just don't get why isn't everyone bored like 2 minutes into their next song. honest to fucking god they sound like they just record jamming sessions, just jamming harmonics with the same guitar effects.

hellpickle, it depends what you like man. once you listen to enough post-metal you have your different
post-metal moods. rosetta do the space thing the best - no one does it better. it's just their niche.
i can see what you're saying and i agree with it somewhat.

i sense they are trying to find a way to be more dynamic with it - attemping to chug, etc. i think
they just need to add chugs/riffs/licks with a slightly more rawer sound so they can stipulate more
defining moments in their tracks.

on another note, i think rosetta should release an album of covers.
