4 stars Rosetta make a very good debut with their double album The Galilean Satellites. Heavily influenced by Isis and Neurosis, Rosetta play post-metal with Michael Armine on sound manipulation and vocals, David Grossman on bass, Bruce McMurtrie Jr on drums, and J. Matthew Weed on electric guitar and violin. Disc One of the album resembles the most straightfoward post-metal, reminiscent of early Isis and later Neurosis. Rosetta, however, bring their own creative touches, and turn slightly more to electronics than Isis, while still keeping their post-metal sound. Disc Two is a little unfocused and more ambient than Disc One, and brings more original material. Though Disc Two is great, Disc One is by far the best in my opinion.

This is a great debut by this post-metal band. Four stars simply for being slightly unfocused in places. This band could go very far; I recommend this album for all fans of post-metal.
