Biography

There are multiple artists with this name: 1) Luxembourgish neofolk/martial act. 2) Hip-hop mc and producer from Los Angeles, USA. 3) R&B singer from Benton Harbor, USA. 4) Experimental dub-influenced band from Chicago, USA. 5) Cape Verdian zouk singer. 6) Singer and guitarist from USA.

1) ROME is a Luxembourgish neofolk/martial act founded in late 2005 as the main output for the songs of Jerome Reuter and was joined by co-producer Patrick Damiani as official member in early 2008. ROME signed to the Swedish label CMI in 2006 to release an EP titled “Berlin” (June 2006) and the albums “Nera” (November 2006), “Confessions d’un voleur d’ames” (April 2007), “Masse Mensch Material” (March 2008). In 2009 ROME got signed to the german label Trisol and released the EP “To Die Among Strangers” (May 2009) and the album “Flowers From Exile” (June 2009).
In their earlier work ROME mixes influences of Industrial and Neofolk with Experimental and Electronic Pop. The traditions of (French) Chanson and (American) Folk are becoming more and more influential in their current work. In 2009 violin player Nikos Mavridis officially joined the band to further contribute to the creation of their unique sound, which they themselves refer to as Chanson Noir. Nikos left the band in late 2010 to answer the army’s call and Patrick found himself more and more tied up in the work for his own professional recording studio in Germany. ROME released the EP “L’assassin” in early 2010, shortly before going into hiatus, followed by the full length “Nos chants perdus”.

    Just the word Rhodesia was mentioned so many times during the album that I thought it's most likely personal for him. Same with Europe when it goes to classical neofolk bands.

    So taking an original theme is "running out of ideas" now?... The issues the album touches upon are fascinating and bugged me personaly since I started studying history few years back. I think what Jerome conveys is very much in line with the internationalistic message of the previous albums, only presented through a very down to earth example of a man discovering his national identity was purely artificial. I am impressed by how well Reuter presented this message in the lyrics. And no, Rhodesia wasn't a "far away african country", it's fate is very directly tied to Europe and can be used to describe Europe as well. It's definetly not "running out of ideas".

    Their music sounds quite modern. Yet, there is some spirit of the past ages in it. And it's amazing.

    Emosatan, I had almost the same thoughts. The new album is great, but I really don't get the intention.. Anyway..

    Darn, saw the October 29th show in the event box and got excited. Too bad it's the shitty rapper guy.

    Flowers was about the Spanish civil war. I find it nice for once to hear about something else than WW2 in martial music, this is not the only interesting conflict in human history...

    Emosatan, Rpme has always mixed personal story telling through historical narratives.

    Such unusual passion for a historical event of far african country. Not that new album is bad, not at all. I just don't quite understand what moved him, Jerome I mean. Is he out of ideas?

    typical...crooks of amazon are offering the box set for way less than regular mailorders. http://www.amazon.de/A-Passage-Rhodesia-Rome/dp/B00LTAWPOO/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_img_1
