Then movement and commotion took life so easily. Reckless streams and confused currents erased the last standing blocks. Ages of silence, pressure and darkness seemed forsaken, clearing the place for a fluent colonization. Upstream, the river is growing, and it's flooding History with elusive events and shifting uproar. A lake is spreading on the lowest territories, turning all solid matter into cloudy water. What's left of the air is thickening and the whole world's chemistry is mutating. Clarity disappears, while dampness and fog pass through lives like sharpened bullets. All possible states of water share the space between earth and the sky. Getting a grip, making sense, seeing some truth through the events of time, have become mere dreams of a past civilization. Now, a boundless tide is running through each corner of earth and confusion displaces lucidity. Underneath the streams, the marks of deadly empires continue crawling unseen. The threats of the old, dry and weathered world are still here, they have simply become even more unreachable, beneath the new layers of shifty waters. If only the water flow was revealing the shapes of hidden jailers instead of entwining space, time and matter. They would be weapons, showing up sunk ruins and digging up the rubble that the world's still living in.
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
