After having played in several underground bands in Luxembourg,singer-songwriter Jerome Reuter almost unintentionally founded ROME in December 2005 by recording a now legendary demo tape at a friendâ€™s studio in Germany. That demo is now known as ROMEâ€™s first official release, the Berlin EP and the friend and engineer, Patrick Damiani, has become the second creative force in ROME. After having released three groundbreaking albums at a breathtaking pace (Nera â€“ 2006; Confessions dâ€™un Voleur dâ€™Ames â€“ 2007 and Masse Mensch Material - 2008), ROME found a home in the German label Trisol and released
The music and lyrical world of ROME is genuinely unique and constantly brilliant. Blending excellent songwriting craftsmanship, unusual arrangements and fine poetry into one monstruous and intimate musical output that combines chanson, dark ambient, apocalyptic folk, pop, acoustic rock, martial industrial, cold wave â€“ all rolled into one impressive avantgarde package. The lyrical beauty of Reuterâ€™s compositions and the complex arrangements of Damiani make ROME an unusually challenging musical experience. A must for music lovers.
