Awesome Name-Your-Price Albums
Formed in Philadelphia in 2003 and appropriately dubbed “metal for astronauts,” Rosetta pulled together elements from 90s hardcore, drone, doom, and atmospheric sludge metal. Informed as much by minimal soundscapes as by pulverizing weight, the band’s compositions have a spaced-out, exploratory feel.
In 2013, the band embraced their newfound independence from a record label with the self-funded, pay-as-you-wish album The Anaesthete. The darkest, most unsettling album of the band’s career also marked their greatest success so far, recouping costs in 24 hours and remaining the top-selling release on Bandcamp for nearly a month.
