In 2006 ROME took the Dark Wave and Apocalyptic-Folk scene by surprise with this first release. Mastermind Jérôme Reuter sprouts from the punk and sing-songwriter genres and combines these attitudes into a sombre and experimental dark folk with a strong personal imprint. In their formative years ROME were about emotive songs and collages that are both catchy and disturbing. These songs awake memories of love and death, with the reoccurring themes of despair and loss, guilt and grief, might and war. With the cynical opening line "Once we learned to speak we learned to fail", the band not only set a grand colour to this exquisite candy piece of 6 exclusive songs, but also set the tone for years to come.
Trisol is both honoured and proud to finally make this release available as a beautiful 12" vinyl edition.
