Imagine Rage Against the Machine on steroids and speed, fast forward to the future, and you’ve got Rosen. A cyberpunk band fusing rock, nu metal, hip-hop, and electronic music to create the perfect storm. Their current single, “Riot”, addresses the present political climate of censorship, ignorance and a lack of purpose.
Vocalist Frhetoric remarks about the creation of the single:
“Our guitarist Matt came up with some really cool riffs influenced by Korn and Rage Against the Machine. The chorus just screamed “Riot” at me, so that was the starting point for the song. I wrote the lyrics from the point of view of Antifa activists, as I’d been watching their anti-free speech riots at Berkeley in 2017.”
