On the surface, Pennsylvania’s Rosetta are a post metal band. However, over the course of six albums they have incorporated elements of post-hardcore, shoegaze, drone, post-rock, avant-garde and ambient music in their expansive sound. The group have just released their most recent record Utopioid. Delving into areas that are more atmospheric and melodic than the group’s previous work, it also displays the band’s intrinsic need to develop. I spoke to Matt Weed, guitarist and vocalist with Rosetta, about what exactly the band does during their 10 hour writing sessions, arranging music before composing it, and the influence of LucasArts point and click games on his musical development.
