Salt Lake City doom-folk-metal-other-adjective-here band Subrosa have landed on two prestigious year-end lists with their February release No Help For the Mighty Ones. ---
While the band itself is currently on hiatus, Subrosa's heavier-than-cement-stilettos album No Help For the Mighty Ones (recorded by SLC's Andy Patterson and released by Canadian label Profound Lore; recently limited-issued on vinyl) came in at No. 20 on both Pitchfork and Decibel Magazine's Top Metal Albums of 2011. The ladies just barely missed out on a trifecta with a Grammy nomination, however, since celebrated "metal" band Sum 41 was somehow in the running.
Update: No Help also hits No. 3 at MetalSucks.net.
