Rosetta - The Galilean Satellites (2005)

I don't think I've posted two albums by the same band in such rapid succession before but there's a first time for everything, I suppose. Philly's very own Rosetta produces some of the most spaced-out, sludgy and brutal metal I've ever heard. To be fair, I don't listen to too much metal at all. This is because I never hear much metal and think to myself, "This is refreshing and new sounding!" This is not the case with Rosetta. I just recently got their first full-length, perhaps one of the most ambitious debut releases I know of. Each CD is just about an hour long and the first one is more of their space/sludge/post metal style while the second one is more dark ambient stuff. I was initially intrigued by the concept because apparently, they are supposed to be listened to simultaneously. I have for you all a version where they are already combined and then the 2 CDs separately. When they are combined it is the musical equivalent of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Megazord and will blow you away. The first CD on its own is great too and I suppose the more ambient CD is good for what it is but thats not really my thing. I hope you can all muster the patience required to listen to all of this, I assure you, it is well worth the 3 hours.
