NevBorn has a message to send, way beyond their five mysterious horizons. Could it be that post-hardcore still has a beating heart ? How do these 5 swiss youngsters dare to pretend to bring anything new to the table ? Heavy drums, massive simplistic riffs and screamed vocals interrupting melancholic spatial ambiances. We all heard this 20 years ago already - but this also means they're born with it ! This sad, violent and introspective music flows naturally through their veins and poisons matthieu hinderer's urgent and touching vocals. What could have been a well-educated stylistic homework reveals itself as a true physical journey. Sincere emotions transcripted in guitar distortion that are about to blast the last depressive remains of your adolescents frustrations.

This album breaks conventions with most post-metal. It at once can be played next to shoegaze then breaks out into a fury of aggression and still remain catchy. For my money Rosetta are at the top of the food chain. After all the amazing albums Rosetta has, it boggles the mind that they can still innovate and surprise me. I love that I can play this next bands as diverse as Ride, Slowdive, Joy Division, The Cure, Godflesh, and Neurosis. It's a pure delight on the ears. Bryon Wilson
Just look at the song titles, and tell me this is not some deep psychological album reflecting the artist's mind. It has honesty, intensity, it's well polished and unless you have no memories, it will bring you back to some nice episodes of your life, whether you like it or not. Oliver Juan
Album that is mostly stripped of the heaviness to bring you a laid-back, melodic approach to post-metal. I absolutely love the string opera that is created here. The subtle side of Rosetta is probably the best side. FLESH MECHANIC
