Sub Rosa biography
Progressive Rock band, created in 2006 by Reinaldo Penido, Daniel Deboni and Vinícius Mendes, in the city of Betim, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. SUB ROSA have been influenced by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Marillion, yet looking for their own musical identity and trying to stamp their own mark on the listener.

It's possible to determinate two classical line-ups to the band, being the first: Vinícius Mendes - Guitars, keyboards, flute and vocals; Reinaldo Penido - Bass and vocals; Júnior Mansur - Guitars, keyboards and vocals; Rômulo César - Drums and vocals; Wallace Mansur - Guitars, sax, harmonica and vocals. (This line-up recorded a demo, with three songs.) And the second and present: Reinaldo Penido - Bass and vocals; Al Duarte - Synthesizers and vocals; Bárbara Laranjeira - Drums and percussion; Márcia Cristina - Vocals; Glaydston Friederich - Vocals; Thiago Barrez - Guitars; Vagner Pereira - Sax. Recently, Vinícius Mendes was hired as second guitarist.

SUB ROSA recorded a demo in 2007 - the 3 songs go from blues to jazz. This demo was the ticket for the band to record their first official album. "The Gigsaw" (uniting Gig + Jigsaw) is the debut album, with 14 tracks. This album was composed and produced by bassist Reinaldo Penido; the conception and the design of all the visual art is his, also. The present line-up was joined during the recording process and the album release. The songs are interlocked, making the album an indivisible piece, but also working fine when listened separately. The graphic art brings a complex symbology. It works as a guide to the album narrative and shows panels from the Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry, a Book of Hours created by the Limbourgh brethren, under request of John of France.

The band is now working on its second album, "11:11" to be released November, 2011.

Sub Rosa Crossover Prog

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Excellent debut CD by this new brazilian band. Someone tipped me about it and I contact them through their website to get their CD (it´s an independent release, so anyone interested should contact www.subrosa.com.br). It was a shot in the dark since I had never heard of them, although they live not very far from my hometown. It was worth it, though. The Gigsaw is one of the best CDs I heard this year and 2010 has been an year full of great stuff, old or new. So it had to be quite strong material to impress me lately. Sub Rosa had it.

I don´t know why they are labeled as a crossover band when the eclectic prog tag would be much more fitting. Because eclectic they surely are! There is a lot of influences in their music: early Pink Floyd (the strongest and most recognizable), Van Der Graaf Generator, Marillion, Renaissance, Eloy plus jazzy passages, a funky guitar here and there, krautrock, minimalistic keys and so on. As odd as this mix may sound, it works. In fact they have their own personality already, which is why I was so drawn to their work.

As usual with good prog CDs, It took a few spins to fully enjoy this record. However, some parts are full of pure beauty from the very first time I heard them. There is a 70´s ´flavour´ all over the record. I specially liked the alternating male and female vocals (even if their heavy accent may annoy some people) both of whom are very well handled, something often forgotten in this style. The voices here are as good as the tremendous instrumental work. I loved the retro-like Hammond organ sounds, the vintage sounding synth solos and the very well done guitar lines (mostly influenced by Latimer/Gilmour, but ultimately quite varied). Interesting thing: they have a girl drummer, Barbara Laranjeira, something quite unusual in prog (and she does a good job, with a style reminiscent of Floyd´s Nick Mason). There is not a single filler in the whole CD. I always listen to it from start to finish, even though I still personally think the first track was not the best choice for the opener. Production is very good overall (the bass is a tad too loud sometimes, though). The booklet with the technical data and lyrics is also very nice.

Highlights? Too many to mention. Just listen and pick up yours. There is a lot of little gems hidden here. The Gigsaw sounds both familiar and new, which is the base of their charm.

Conclusion: a stunning debut. The ecletic mixture and the sometimes bare, minimalistic approach of some tunes may take a little time to be fully appreciated, but the album has something most new releases lack: as varied as it is, it has a unifying feeling that gives it a coherent whole. Sure, it is not perfect and there are obvious rough edges to work out on the future. Still, it is a remakable first for an unknown act. Very promising, no doubt.

Rating: 4,5 stars. Highly recommended!
