Singer David Rosario was looking for someone to record some of his songs with. David had been impressed with guitarist Stein Hjertholm and drummer Per-Helge Bruvoll after seeing several gigs with their band, so he reached out to them.

The three of them recorded a 3 song demo, and during this process, the chemistry between them was eminent and the idea of Rozario was born.

This was just prior to the pandemic and naturally all activity became very restricted. They used their time wisely and focused on song-writing and finding the direction of the band, with songwriting contributions from all three.

Rozario then teamed up with producer Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Holter, Jorn etc.) and started to record what would become “To The Gods We Swear” in his studio in Halden, Norway.

During the recordings of this release, the lineup of the band was finalized when young guitar virtuoso Johan Jamtfall & bassist Anders Halsan Engum joined them.

Rozario is: David Rosario (vocals), Stein Hjertholm (guitars), Johan Jamtfall (lead guitar), Anders Halsan Engum (bass), Per-Helge Bruvoll (drums)
