Release Date: 2010 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Moving past the 'post-metal' moniker, Rosetta craft an album full of brooding intensity and superb musicianship.

Complex drum patterns, crushing metal guitars tied with spacey, reverb/delay drenched lead riffs and a scream from hell all combine together to create one of the most interesting metal albums of 2010. This is music to tie your brain up and hold it hostage. Every single song on here will leave you breathless wanting more. This is perfect night driving music.

A Determinism of Morality sets out to distinguish itself from the 'post-metal' tag that they have been bestowed. Combining elements of hardcore, post rock/metal and ambient sections, ADOM seeks to really make you think about music. Too many albums created these days cater to vapid, thoughtless feelings and emotions while ADOM needs you to sit down with headphones and a mind full of thoughts and questions and just express these through the music.

If I were to take a trip into space, in the vast nebulae and multi-colored gaseous clouds of wonder, this would be my soundtrack. Sometimes music can transcend itself, and help to open the gateway to different realms of thought. This band and album (now fast creeping into my top artist of the year on last.fm) have truly moved me to look further into the depths of intelligent/instrument driven metal bands. Gaining ground from The Galilean Satellites ADOM adds to bands repertoire of thoughtful metal. The music has improved in almost every single aspect and the songwriting helps to diversify the album to the point that there is never a dull moment here. Every song is unique, combining different emotions and evoking both positive and negative emotions to suit the soundtrack of our ever changing lives.

This seems to be one of the most exciting times in metal, with so much diversity and creativity to be found, Rosetta stand head and shoulders above thier peers to gaze about the universe with superior force.

try to separate the driving music part. and the bolded part is a contradiction.
