Written by Mike Solo on June 18, 2012

US post metal titans ROSETTA are returning to Australia – and they’re bringing their buddies CITY OF SHIPS along with them. To celebrate, the bands have teamed up for a split release, featuring a mix of rarities and hard to find material.

The record showcases both band’s mastery of the post-metal genre, with a blend of powerful riffs, subtle dynamics and solid grooves. With 4 tracks from City of Ships and 2 lengthy tracks from Rosetta, the record is billed as an EP and clocks in at around 40 minutes.

The┬árecord will be released July 11, ahead of their Australian tour with Brisbane ‘sunshine metal’ act NUCLEAR SUMMER.
