LISTEN TO “KILLING RAPTURE”, THE NEW SUBROSA SINGLE, ON STEREOGUM
Song appears on For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages, out August 26th from Profound Lore
 
“…draws no line between beauty and doom, as crushing riffs and a sweeping duo of violins weave in and out of guitarist Rebecca Vernon's thoughtful meditations on love and death." - NPR
 
 
Salt Lake City experimental doom band SubRosa are preparing for the August 26th release of their most triumphant and enveloping album to date; For This We Fought the Battle of Ages (Profound Lore).  The band has premiered another song off of the album - “Killing Rapture” - which is streaming now on Stereogum,who said, “SubRosa specialize in wistful, cinematic evocations of sorrow, but they can also put together a hell of a driving build-and-release setpiece, as evidenced by this tune’s second half.”
 
Continuing the momentum from 2013’s More Constant Than the Gods, which saw year-end acclaim in metal and mainstream outlets, For this We Fought The Battle of Ages brings a new awareness to SubRosa as one of the most prominent progressive metal bands from America today.  The band’s crushing monolithic sound canvas consists of a devastating mix of soul-crushing doom, innovative chamber music (solidified by the band’s two electric violin players) and balladry all filtered through the veil of American gothic tragedy. For This We Fought the Battle of Ages will push the band further as they prepare to unveil their most important and crucial album in their repertoire.
 
SubRosa will tour the globe extensively in support of For This We Fought the Battle of Ages - check out the band’s touring schedule announced for September through November, in the U.S., Europe and UK, below.
