Ippocalyptica So while most people consider More Constant Than The Gods to be both SubRosa’s best work as well as one of the best sludge / doom metal albums of the past decade, I give the edge to this beast, which happened to be SubRosa’s final effort. Everything is right where it needs to be, and I am hard-pressed to name many albums that are more emotionally-impactful than this one. As someone who generally dislikes doom, this is on another level. And hot damn, those electric violins are on point! Favorite track: Despair Is A Siren.

dswest I already enjoyed SubRosa, but For This We Fought the Battle of Ages in particular rocks my socks off. It's morose, heavy at times, and the violins and vocals are pitch perfect. I think "Black Majesty" in particular could only be written by someone with an intimate knowledge of depression-- every song feels like an emotional process. This album is probably in my top five at this point, it's just incredible.

Josh Gregory Huge fan of this band. This is a great addition to their already amazing discography. A little different approach than their previous albums however still has that subrosa sound that we love. You get lost in the layers of this album. Favorite track: Killing Rapture.

SubRosa Salt Lake City, Utah

SubRosa is an experimental sludge-doom band from Salt Lake City, a city plagued by the tension of opposites. Within the SubRosa crucible, sludgy low-end and high volume lock arms with ultra-melodicism, folk and experimental elements delivered through the haunting ambience of two electric violins. ... more
