Exclusive Track Premiere: Rosetta, “(Untitled III)”



Did you enjoy “(Untitled I),” the new track we shared from Philadelphia-based experimental/proggy/sludgey/post-metallers Rosetta?

Then you’ll surely like”(Untitled III),” another track from forthcoming album Quintessential Ephemera, that’s got a whole lot more of the same to offer. The song has everything we’ve come to expect from Rosetta over the many years, albums and EPs: delicate atmospherics, cinematically orchestrated buildups, punishing, sludgy blows and Mike Armine’s powerful, full-throated bellow, all wrapped into a dramatic journey of a composition. And, as a bonus at the end, a choral section at the end featuring every band member!

Here’s what the band offers on the track:

This song got built up around Dave’s smooth arpeggio bass line, which we all agreed sounded like Young Team-era Mogwai. This is the first track in Rosetta history where every member got a real vocal credit — that choral section at the end is Dave, Eric, Matt, and BJ all singing harmonies.

Check out “(Untitled III)” below. Quintessential Ephemera comes out on June 22nd. European CDs and 2xLPs can be preordered from Golden Antenna, and the US CD is available from Init Records while the 2xLP is at War Crime.
