Subrosa is an experimental sludge-doom band from Salt Lake City, a city plagued by a tension of opposites. Within the Subrosa crucible, sludgy low-end and high volume lock arms with ultra-melodicism, folk and experimental elements delivered through the haunting ambience of two electric violins. The overall effect is emotional, eerie, bleak, and beautiful.  Profound Lore released Subrosa’s next album, More Constant than the Gods, on Sept. 17, 2013. It received extensive critical acclaim from many prominent online and print music publications, and appeared on “Best of 2013” year-end lists in Decibel Magazine (#4 of Top 40 Extreme Albums of 2013) (#5 metal album of the year), Pitchfork (#9 of Top 40 Metal Albums of 2013), #11 on both Rolling Stone’s and SPIN’s 20 Best Metal Albums of 2013, #5 on Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 6 Best Metal Albums of the Year,” and #2 on Cvlt Nation’s Top 6 Doom Albums of 2013.
