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.

roseWith the success of the 2017 album Songs For The Ritually Abused, a new ROSE album is in the works! The Kickstarter was fully funded thanks to the fans. Randy will be recruiting some of the original ROSE crew from the first two albums, as well as some guest vocalists. Rose Studios recently purchased a vintage Auditronics 501 Analog recording console, so this album is going to be thick and punchy. The drum kit that will be used is a 1970's Lugwig Blue Swirl Vistalite. Check out the Kickstarter info here.
