Official press release:
Philadelphia-based post-metal veterans Rosetta will reissue 2013’s The Anaesthete and 2015’s Quintessential Ephemera full-lengths on 2xLP via Pelagic Records next month.
After concluding a decade-long partnership with Translation Loss Records in 2013, Rosetta embraced their newfound independence with The Anaesthete, a self-funded, pay-as-you-wish album that emphasizes the dark and dismal side of Rosetta. The record proved a great success and remained a top-selling release on Bandcamp for nearly a month.
Quintessential Ephemera saw Rosetta expand to a five-piece. The addition of Eric Jernigan (City Of Ships) introduced not only a second guitarist, but also melodic vocals to the band’s sound ultimately expanding their sonic territory. A new era for Rosetta had begun. Shaped as much by the minimal soundscapes of Stars Of The Lid as by the pulverizing weight of Godflesh and drone/doom influences, Rosetta’s compositions developed into a spaced-out, exploratory feel, appropriately dubbed “metal for astronauts.”
Both The Anaesthete and Quintessential Ephemera will be reissued on 2xLP on various color variants via Pelagic Records October 5th. For North American preorders, go to THIS LOCATION. In Europe go HERE and in Australia go HERE.
