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.
Tiger Flowers
Those familiar with New York City's Tiger Flowers know that they build upon the darkest metallic hardcore vibes of bands like Deadguy and Kiss It Goodbye, and that frontman Jesse Madre's intensity and sincerity are unmatched - and that all this is oddly-yet-perfectly balanced by the fact that Madre riffs like a stand-up comedian onstage and that the band cite early Motley Crue as a key inspiration. A staple of the New York scene, possessing a storied live show that has been described as both a tribal ceremony and a keg party gone wrong, Tiger Flowers have released one self-titled EP to date and are currently at work on their debut full-length album with producer Elliot Geller (Malignancy, Dim Mak) and mastering engineer Shane Frisby (Turmoil, Revocation). There is no label confirmed to release the album as of yet.

BrooklynVegan have described Tiger Flowers with these words: "The band take influence from elders who pushed the genre into new directions, like Deadguy, Converge, and Rorschach, and add in metal influences rooted in hardcore like Unsane... What emerges is a cocktail of furious hardcore interjected with chaotic blasts of screaming feedback, time changes, doomy riffs and most importantly, delivered with tons of live energy."

MetalSucks called Tiger Flowers' 2011 debut EP, "one of the most original and arresting releases of the year". The 'Flowers have yet to release any new material since that acclaimed EP, making it all the more exciting that the band are at work now on a new album. Stay tuned for more details.
Ladder Devils
Ladder Devils
Ladder Devils, formed in 2009 are a noisy rock outfit from Philadelphia, PA, consisting of former members of The Minor Times and Marigold. Their first songs appeared on a 3-way split with fellow noise bretheren Fight Amp and Kowloon Walled City. Shortly after that, they released their debut EP, Forget English, on October 2010 as a free download. The EP was immediately well received and garnered them attention from the punk/hardcore and indie communities alike. The band is putting the finishing touches on a new EP for release in early 2012 and are currently writing for their debut full length
