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) Rome Ramirez: Singer and guitarist from USA (Singer for Sublime with Rome).

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”.

    всегда считал говном полным, их еще просвиньин котирует оказываецца. но потом вчиталсо в тексты и понял, что зря так долго игнорировал - ребята, однозначно, классные. кстати, в люксембурге вообще еще есть группы (кроме парочки невнятных победителей евровидения)?

    Being hours away from 2015, and A Passage to Rhodesia was without a doubt one of the best albums of 2014, if not the best.

    Listening to Masse Mensch Material now for the first time in well over a year after an attempt to avoid the massive overplaying of it I've done in the past. Bloody hell it is good. I could probably listen to it daily and still not get bored of it.

    Passage to Rhodesia is an absolute masterpiece, one of the best 2 or 3 records of the year, maybe THE best record of 2014. One of the most romantic albums I've heard, and romance is something lost on a lot of neofolk artists. But Jerome seems to really understand how important that is to neofolk and to music as a whole.
