Short intro

The Galilean Satellites is the first studio album by American post-metal band Rosetta, released in 2005 on Translation Loss Records. The album is two discs long and the track lengths on each disc correspond to each other, indicating that the band intended the albums to be played at the same time. Disc one is in a post-metal style while disc two is ambient noise. The Galilean Satellites by Rosetta, released 14 February 2006 1. Departe 2. Europa 3. Absent 4. Itinerant 5. Au Pays Natal 6.

Rosetta - The Galilean Satellites review: In the shadows of post metal giants, Rosetta exemplifies all that the genre is and should be. This is energy and experimentation at its finest. I'm almost tempted to just blindly buy the album entirely because of the whole 2 disk concept. I actually probably will, but I'll at least check out the band a bit first. APJotun April 12th 2008.

To call this album a masterpiece would be an understatement.
The debut by the Philadelphia post-metal band Rosetta is a concept album dealing with a story of a space man and his obsession with the moon Europa. The lyrics (not present in the album, but comprehensible after a few listens) deal with themes of loneliness, obsession, and self-isolation. Vocalist Mike Armine roars these lines with such intensity that you will feel is if they have been branded into your soul. The hardcore-influenced drumming carries waves of both beauty and ferocity, chasing each other in a circle until the song hits its climax and crumbles back to where it begins. The guitar, saturated with shrieking distortion, layers of unending delay, and towering reverb, delivers pounding rhythm lines and tear-jerking melodies. The music slowly shifts and evolves in such a way that one would expect the band to have at least 3 guitarists playing at once.
The conceptual journey begins with a reserved intro against a bassline that is repeated throughout the entire song. It almost immediately erupts into a crushing metal experience, with wailing guitar lines and feedback rearing their heads throughout. Next is a death-march of a song, which repeats a riff that gradually grows in intensity until a chugging, frenzied riff ignites and the music turns into a fast-building strummed riff which climbs in pitch and intensity like an orgasm. Afterwards, things slow down for an instrumental track, which, while a slow point on the album, still reminds the listener that they're listening to an extreme album. The penultimate song begins with quiet keyboards and even violin, then a rapid guitar enters and the beautiful melodies are continued in a hardcore style, with fill-laden drumming and desperate-sounding vocals wailing about the futility of life in search of something unattainable. This is followed by an attention-gripping bout of ambient noise intertwined with recordings of a man's ramblings about his lost sanity. Part one of the album draws towards its glorious conclusion as drums and guitar enter, and the music reaches its soul-wrenching height one last time, before leaving on a tragic final riff.
Part two of this opus consists of Hecker-esque ambient, with drone and noise elements thrown in for good measure. Gusts of spacelike wind, shimmering chords, and disembodied howls all make their appearance against songs that drone in the same key as the previous five songs. This isn't a coincidence. What elevates this album beyond "incredible" status is what happens when the listener plays the ambient and metal tracks at the same time: they sync up perfectly. The atmospheres and soundscapes of part two are perfectly aligned to each nuance of part one, so that the already atmospheric songs are granted a new level of depth and emotion.
I believe that this is the best metal album of all time.
