A heavy stillness spreads over the depths of the lake, silencing all voices and crushing even the greatest of strengths, until every movement is suppressed. Time has turned the liquid mass into stone. Each insignificant raindrop raises the pressure higher and freezes water atoms to the electrons. Down there lies an eternal world of numbness, which used to follow what seemed to be inescapable gravity rules. The amber's aeon taught deep black waters how to shelter and hide energy. They could become deep black powers, if only they knew a dam was holding them tight. That concrete was tying them down. Eternity is proved wrong as the clouds release one drop too many, and cracks on the sea wall appear like unexpected springs. The black hole's depths scatter themselves through enlightened valleys, giving birth to the unknown.
This album breaks conventions with most post-metal. It at once can be played next to shoegaze then breaks out into a fury of aggression and still remain catchy. For my money Rosetta are at the top of the food chain. After all the amazing albums Rosetta has, it boggles the mind that they can still innovate and surprise me. I love that I can play this next bands as diverse as Ride, Slowdive, Joy Division, The Cure, Godflesh, and Neurosis. It's a pure delight on the ears. Bryon Wilson - divIder
