'Käferzeit' - the time of beetles, is the first instalment in a series of releases featuring exclusively martial ambient material and "industrial" collages, partially reminiscent of earlier ROME works such as 'Hate Us and See if We Mind' (2013), 'A Passage to Rhodesia' (2014) or parts of the 'Die Aesthetik der Herrschaftsfreiheit' trilogy (2011). Whereas ROME's oeuvre usually features lots of guitar work, 'Käferzeit' focuses on complex industrial loops, unconventional bruitist arrangements and instrumental ambient collages.

The images evoked by these martial soundscapes (mostly made of restored period audio material and found sounds)  transport us back to Europe's blood-drenched past, when ideologies were still battling each other to the death on European soil. Images of armoured creatures digging foxholes in a landscape ravaged by war; of the futility of defending trenches against murderous incursions, as shells tear bodies apart, souls apart.
