Every now and then, a piece of musical brilliance catches you by surprise…totally out of the blue.
Avant-garde metal masters ROSETTA have done just that by releasing ‘Utopioid’ on an unexpecting world today. And it’s nothing short of stellar.
Rosetta have taken things up another notch with their sixth album. In what can only be described as a trans-dimensional audio feast, Utopioid takes you on a journey to the very outer realms of the galaxy and back. This album goes from being beautifully ambient at times, through to heavy, sludge metal/post hardcore and literally everything in between.
The first listen of the album was almost over-whelming with the complex layers and unfamiliar dynamics that graced my ears, but over several run throughs, it blooms into a sonic masterpiece.
You can find yourself getting lost in the music quite often in this release. Just sit back and let each note take you to another world.
A perfect balance of post hardcore/ambient/space metal fusion makes this album beautiful to listen to from start to finish.
Their self-described ‘metal for astronauts’ couldn’t be more accurate. If there was a soundtrack to the birth of the universe, Rosetta would be the orchestra.
