AdvertisementChanson Noir, Post-Industrial, Avant-Pop, NeuFolk, Singer-Songwriter... all these tags are needed when attempting to describe the music of ROME, and yet it can never really be pigeonholed.
The nucleus of the project is Luxembourg-born singer and multi-instrumentalist Jerome Reuter. Reuter often deals with historical and complex topics in his lyrics laced with fragments of world literature. While references to current world affairs and politics have always been rather veiled in ROME’s work so far, "Gates of Europe” sets quite a different tone: the album was written under the direct impressions of the war in Ukraine.
ROME always succeeds in the art of capturing the world's ineffable in haunting music and moving live performances. Without big gestures, focusing only on the essentials. And that is exactly what makes for the great appeal of ROME.
As support we're happy to welcome onboard Offermose from Danmark. Surrender to the spell that weaves the world around you! Lay down on the misty waters and watch the starless sky above. Like skin stretched taut over the dome of an empty skull. Soon you shall feel yourself sinking towards the bottomless deep. Through the portal of the mind and into the realm of the soul. Trapped inside the shell of an ancient body. Never ending, ever changing. Echoing the secrets of those who went before. Like the sudden flare of dying embers in a cosmic night!
