Rome – Nera

The Berlin EP was a very nice introduction to this new talent on Cold Meat Industry. This full lenght debut cd is nothing less then an impressive piece of work. In general the atmosphere is less post-industrial and martial inspired. I even want to claim this is a in a way very much a (dark) new wave album.

Just listen to ‘Reversion’, this is dark new wave at its best! Also tracks like ‘Das Unbedingte’ and ‘Hope Dies Painless’ are done in the new wave tradition. A bit more in the martial and post-industrial style are ‘Rape Blossoms’ and ‘Nera’, but these songs are not dominating the album in quantity nor mood.

Rome truely is a fresh new talent and one of the best bands on Cold Meat Industry at this moment. Highly recommended!
