Not to be confused with the same-named alt-rock outfit from Michigan, Philadelphia's Rosetta carve at the same epic trance metal trough dug by bands such as Neurosis, Isis, and Cult of Luna before them. Formed in the summer of 2003 by Michael Armine (vocals/samples/electronics), J. Matthew Weed (guitar, violin), David Grossman (bass), and Bruce McMurtrie Jr. (drums), the group hooked up with Translation Loss Records a year later, and duly delivered its ambitious debut album, Galilean Satellites, in 2005. The band's second studio album, Wake/Lift, arrived in 2007, followed by A Determinism of Morality in 2010.
