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 bright

Since 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.

“The imagery of both the song and album is a nautical geographical picture,” they explained further. “A meridian is a line of longitude on a map, which runs north to south. A constant north in this symbolizes the ultimate destination, the unshakable object that you are connected to by an invisible line or force, and whether you’re getting pulled to it or pushed towards it, the album constitutes the imaginary line becoming tangible.”

‘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.”
