Coming off the Rome post Cold Meat Industry label is tough to explain. I disliked this album for the longest time, I couldn’t understand why Rome would change what they had with albums like Masse Mensch and Nera. Then after awhile it hit me, this is the perfect evolution to this music. They are creating a path unlike any Neofolk/Martial musician has before. While I wish they return to the 'old' Rome and this album is by far not my favorite, I get what they are accomplishing with this. This album is the most upbeat and positive of them all, you listen to this and you feel good. Songs like 'We who feel in love with the sea' and my favorite 'Swords to rust' you cannot pass up. I have bought all of Rome's albums for a reason I support them no matter what path they decide to go.
The definition of original
My favorite album of 2009. Rome are extremely original, using acoustic guitars + samples, etc. to create a moody atmosphere for the powerful and emotional lyrics/vocals. As downtrodden as the album can be it is through this that you will find it so uplifting and beautiful. Really, just a piece of art. (Explicit Content??????)
Fantastic art. Fantastic music.
The lucky few who will stumble this far on iTunes and actually buy this album will not be disappointed.
