Rosaline Navigate Life's Troubled Waters In 'A Silver Meridian'
A restless needle held by time, maps laid face to face / Direction, compass, lights in the sky / Altruism glowing brightSince band names referencing oceans and bodies of water are all the rage now, it makes sense that it would seep into a metal band's lyrics as well. Seafaring imagery as a metaphor for life's struggled has had a rich legacy in literature, and Rosaline 'A Sliver Meridian' -- off of 'A Constant North' -- makes wonderful use of this abundant source of life. "The imagery of both the song and album is a nautical/geographical picture, a meridian is a line of longitude on a map, which runs north to south," the band told Noisecreep.
'A Constant North; is representative of the theme of the album as a whole. "The song and this album hold a theme of brotherhood and friendship in the face of adversity. The song is about reaching a goal or achieving an accomplishment fueled by the strength of your bonds with whoever is helping you. You just can't do it all on your own, but together you can overcome the most treacherous and difficult journey."
