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”.

    Hate us is weak. Nothing about two new songs stands out. They're ok I guess but Jerome had done pieces much more impressive than that. As for the two ambient/noise pieces - I don't even know what they are doing on Rome record.

    a74nh, there was a Rome album in 2013. It's called Hate Us And See If We Mind. I guess it's officially considered an EP, but it's over 40 minutes long so it might as well be an LP.

    Nothing is more deep than read Edward Thomas, Rupert Broke and Siegfried Sassoon listening to Rome; I feel like being inside trenches.

    There was no Rome album in 2013. I thought something was wrong with last year. Every year has had a new Rome album as far back as my memory stretches.

    ''you admire the lions, you despise all sheep, but following lions, makes nothing but sheep'' sums up nearly everyone I've ever met.

    Why are Rome supporting Kirlian Camera.... it seems an odd pairing.

    Anyway, "My time again" could be the best Rome cover ever.

    "ape"?!?! that's no language to use for a ROME supporter! but yes, no one really wants to see "my time again" among these fine dark folk releases!
