SubRosa from Salt Lake City are four ladies who like to dabble in magic and darkwave. Their new album Strega has the slow bass heavy rumble of Black Sabbath and the Sisters of Mercy.
All the instruments are trying to come up for air in a mix that sounds like it was taped in an overcrowded cauldron. You have to strain your ears to make out what is going on. Yes, that's an electric violin, and could that be an upright bass? Darth Vader fan club card carrying members will love this. File under: gothic witch rock.
