This review is long overdue. This album right here is the album that finally pulled me out of the "commercial" music world and into the world of the raw, experimental, and sincere. An amalgamation of everything I love about post-metal and hardcore taken to a mathy, heavy, ambient extreme. brineryte
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
What an emotional, melodic, reserved example of modern heaviness. This album is immensely singable without being repetitive or boring, and has an overall mellow sludgy heaviness that I can only liken to Steak Number Eight. I love this album's vibe! Dan Curhan
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 19, 2019
Revisiting this album today and it just as powerful and demanding as it was eight years ago. Perfectly pertinent to today's pandemic world and all the other donked up messes facing us. This album reminds us to live... while we may.
