Rosetta
Rosetta
Rosetta is a democratic collective, and writes and performs as a unit. It formed in June 2003.

"Metal for astronauts": not meaning a programmatic soundtrack to spaceflight itself, but more a sonic expression that might be found especially enjoyable by the particular type of person whose occupation or preoccupation has taken them -- physically or metaphysically -- out of the Earth's atmosphere. The Galilean Satellites is about one such space man.


We oppose the "music industry" and its exploitative treatment of unsuspecting artists. DIY is an ethic that works. We oppose "music criticism" and hype-filled magazines that set themselves up as arbiters of taste. We support grindcore. We support Paul Stanley. We oppose silly names for musical microgenres that begin with "post-". We oppose artwork composed of dead trees, flaming skulls, or dead naked women. We support symbolic exchange and the existence and pursuit of real Meaning.
Grimace Federation
Grimace Federation
A hypnotic boom of sound packed with odd meters, psyched out tones and beautifully spooky melodies. "philly's secret weapon" A.D. AMOROSI CITY PAPER
Mohican
Mohican
Mixing heart and dynamics, Mohican has set the bar for a new kind of instrumental music. They mix early 90's riffs with the heaviest power you can reach without being 'hardcore" or "metal." It's very apparent that they feel each others passion while playing, creating soundscapes reflecting the struggles of their own lives and the love they have for the music.
