Danish Chaotic Hardcore Band ‘Roselyn’ to Play ‘Rock Alive’ on Sept. 24th.


Roselyn_dk_358The Danish chaotic hardcore band Roselyn has been added to the line up for the 2nd edition of Rock Alive. Recently, the organization announced a move to another location. This year the festival will be held on Sept. 24th. in venue Atak, Enschede, Netherlands. (Their statement can be found here.)

Other performing band’s will be: Leviticus (Classic heavy metal – SE), Safemode (Metalcore – SE), Stun (Noise pop/Alternative – DE), Unseen Faith (Metalcore/Deathcore – DK), Stairway (Hardrock – UK), Dark Sky (Melodic Rock/Metal – DE), Hypersonic (power metal – IT), Nobuts (pop/rock – NL) more tba.

Roselyn is a musical project which arose on the basis of seemingly random, yet fateful encounters between a group of musicians with different religious backgrounds. The common denominator was a desire to revive the classic Christian concepts of forgiveness, hope and reconciliation through a new and unexpected expression. The band consists of former and current members from punk and metal bands in the Danish underground scene, namely; “100 Knives Inside”, “Ascendant” and “Barricades”.

Struggle is a core theme in the music as well as the lyrics – nothing comes without a hammering process – capturing and exploring the journey between the hardship and the joy – the depression and deliverance, from dispair and frustration to conviction, and determination.

This theme is expressed through the violent and frantic, and at times, dark and melancholic soundscape the band embraces.

In a world of rumors of wars and religious extremism from both east and west, we see a need to focus on what we think is the essence of Christianity, across church boundaries and religious barriers and communicate it, added the uncontrollable energy of punk mixed with the grandiose of heavy metal.

On stage, Roselyn mixes a strong visual, and physically vivacious presence with an intense and violent performance of the auditory instruments to support the energy and the heartfelt message through the music.

The aim is to communicate the old virtues of forgiveness and reconciliation in a reinterpreted universe with a mixture of English and Danish texts, so it will be as direct as possible – like the raw and honest-to-heart energy of the hardcore punk music.

After 4 years and two EPs Roselyn are getting ready to hit you hard with their debut full-length, which will be released late 2016.

The band is comprised of: Morten Storgaard – Guitar, Kim Song Sternkopf – Vocals, Levi Rauff – Drums, Niels Durhuus – Bass, Bjarke Brokhøj – (live) Guitar
