Salt Lake City progressive doom band SubRosa play a three-song set at Hellfest 2014. [Fat of the Ram, 0.04; Ghosts of a Dead Empire, 15.40; The Usher, 27:50.]

All of these tracks appear on the band's 2013 album, More Constant Than the Gods [Bandcamp].

In an interview with Noisey, SubRosa front-woman Rebecca Vernon talks about her faith, her family background, and her decision to devote the closing song, "Troubled Cells," on the band's new album to protesting the Mormon Church's November 2015 directives about same-sex relationships. SubRosa's new album, For This We Fought the Battle of Ages (released 26 August 2016), can be streamed in full via Noisey.

Really, really surprised and excited to see SubRosa here. "Cradles" was the first cut I heard from them and got me hooked.

They'll also be performing at next year's Maryland Death Fest.

FTWFTBOA is on Bandcamp now as well. I got my vinyl earlier in the week, been waiting for the BC link to fire up so I can proselytize even more online!
