studentofrhythm I've had a complicated relationship with metal for over 20 years, and have come to realize that my loyalty isn't necessarily to a genre or a set of rules as to what the music should have or sound like, but to qualities that are hard to define: a certain energy, a certain attitude, and a certain elegance, for lack of a better word. Hard to define, but when I hear it I'm home. That's what this record did for me. Favorite track: Troubled Cells.

Abraham Tame Very good album. The instrumentation and vocals aren't lame but the lyrics somehow are. Also "black majesty" sounds like the title of a porn movie. 4/5 stars Favorite track: Despair Is A Siren.

Philipp Rudloff This is exactly the kind of music I wanted some Godspeed You! Black Emperor songs to evolve into while playing them. When I listened to “Despair Is A Siren” riding home through the night from my girlfriend’s place, I was taken aback. This was so intense, so unique. I wanted to scream. 15 minutes for only the first song. I couldn’t even finish it on my 10 minute way home. But you can be damn sure that I used my time alone in our apartment to play this loud. Favorite track: Despair Is A Siren.

With their anticipated new album “For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages”, Salt Lake City doom-chamber metal band SUBROSA have created their most triumphant and most enveloping album to date. Continuing the momentum with 2013’s highly acclaimed turning point album “No Help For The Mighty Ones”, which saw year end acclaim in all metal and mainstream music outlets respectively, said album brought a new awareness to SUBROSA as one of the most prominent doom-infused metal bands from America today through their singular crushing monolithic sound canvas which consists of a devastating mix of soul crushing doom metal, neo-classical chamber music (solidified by the band’s two electric violin players), and Appalachian murder balladry all filtered through the veil of American gothic tragedy.

“For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages” sees SUBROSA expanding their sound to a new plateau with their heaviest, darkest, and most dynamic-sounding album to date through bigger-sounding production value (the new album was fully engineered and mixed by drummer Andy Patterson). With the awareness brought onto the band with the new album’s predecessor, which also saw SUBROSA on their most active touring schedule yet, “For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages” will bring more demand and awareness to the band as they prepare to unveil their most important and crucial album in their repertoire.
