ROSE is a Christian metal band formed by Randy Rose in the early 1990's.  After his other band Mad at the World transitioned into a hard rock band in 1990, Randy decided to further explore the metal genre with his solo effort Sacrificium.  Upon its success, a full band was formed which released four more albums during that same decade:  Healing, Intense Live Series Vol. 3, Crazy Little World, and Into the Unknown.  (The album Crazy Little World took a brief detour into the realm of alternative rock, but the albums that followed returned to the metal genre.)  In 2010, Randy brought back ROSE with a new lineup, and he released a video to highlight an unreleased song titled "Witchburner."  In 2016, a Kickstarter was launched to fund a new album, and Songs for the Ritually Abused was released the following year.  Also in 2017, "Witchburner" was released as both a single and along with other songs on an EP.  In 2023, Randy released The Masquerade on the Behold Industries label.

Retroactive Records has remastered two of Rose's dark and heavy classics from the early 1990's. Both Sacrificium and Healing are now available on colored vinyl (limited to 200 copies each) and compact disc (limited to 300 copies each). The heavy-weight vinyl includes a 12x12 lyric insert with band pics, and the compact disc includes a jewel case with an expanded 8-page lyrics booklet. Both formats contain a special message from Randy Rose himself. These officially licensed products are now available at Boone's Overstock here.


Randy Rose's new album The Masquerade is available now! This album rocks! You need to check it out ASAP. Randy put in a lot of his blood, sweat, and tears to complete this album. It was a long process since 2018, but is well worth the wait. Also available is a supplemental album called The Masquerade Sessions - Rarities & Demos. This will include b-sides from The Masquerade as well as different versions of classic Rose songs. Check out The Masquerade here.
