1 - ROME - A PASSAGE TO RHODESIA - (CD) 
TRISOL


DIGIPAK RE-RELEASE of the most extraordinary Limited Box Edition that Trisol manufactured EVER! "A Passage to Rhodesia" is ROME's tenth album, but it's safe to say it's one of the most important releases in its long-standing career. The album unites instant dark folk classics such as "A Farewell to Europe" and "One Fire" with ambient collages in the best industrial and experimental traditions. Mastermind Jerome Reuter has accomplished a great swirling devil of a record, an epic and tragic masterpiece of considerable scale, rich in theme and philosophic inquiry. "A Passage to Rhodesia" is set against the backdrop of the Bush War (Bush as in jungle, not the American presidents) in the country named after imperialist Cecil Rhodes. The protagonists - a generation of Whites in Black Africa fighting and dying for a lost cause - are caught in a web of blinkered complacency and radical prejudice. Jerome Reuter takes an open-hearted look at the tragedies, insanities and absurdities of war-torn Rhodesia in the dog days of white supremacy in southern Africa. "A Passage To Rhodesia" is a remarkable, yet deeply disturbing odyssey driven by a strange love for the country and its people, a witness-bearing of the rarest courage.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Electrocuting An Elephant 02. The Ballad Of The Red Flame Lily 03. One Fire 04. A Farewell To Europe 05. The Fever Tree 06. Hate Us And See Of We Mind 07. The River Eternal 08. A Country Denied 09. Lullaby For Georgie 10. In A Wilderness Of Spite 11. Bread And Wine 12. The Past Is Another Country

TRISOL


VINYL EDITION OF THE CD WITH THE SAME TITLE.- White 12" double vinyl- 180g audiophile vinyl- Gatefold cover- Printed inner sleevesAs a restless seeker, devoted traveler, even bohemian troubadour, Jerome Reuter stands in a long tradition of lonesome guitar heroes, outcasts moving about restlessly, dedicated to a life beyond the pale. Brel, Cash, Van Zandt, Waits, Cohen, Cave - architects of melancholy like these left their footprints in Jerome Reuter's artistic expression. Jerome Reuter has been expressing his musical visions with his project ROME since 2005, bleeding himself out on ten albums (and various other official releases) in as many years. This anthology unites 20 of the most impressive compositions from his different creative phases.

3 - ROME - BAND 1 AUFBRUCH OR A CROSS OF WHEAT - (CD) 
TRISOL


PART 1 OF THE TRILOGY "DIE AESTHETIK DER HERRSCHAFTSFREIHEIT". The aesthetic dimension of this first volume is that of immediacy. This is made plain by the choice of the recording techniques used (throughout the entire production, Jerome Reuter used only analogue equipment) and the raw and unrelenting sound. It sings the praises of the birth of a revolt, born out of a fascination with action and resistance in itself. It is the pride in self-determination, of resistance, because to resist means giving destiny a form (Camus). However, ROME does not present art which only devotes itself to efficiency: the music remains too experimental, too difficult to decode for that to be the case. "Free man, you will always love the sea" (Baudelaire): as is so often the case with ROME, the poetry of the sea (The Merchant Fleet) crops up again here and there. The liberation and/or libertarian movement was never a coherent movement, because it never wanted to be a matter of demands, but of life (Landauer). Its nature is manifold and contradictory. Its essence is of freedom, therefore it can never be uniform. This finds musical expression on AUFBRUCH in the multifaceted, stylistically-differing arrangements: from haunting sequences reminiscent of audio books, to plaintive ballads and experimental industrial collages - everything is represented here.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Chronicles Of Kronstadt 02. The Angry Brigade 03. The Spanish Drummer 04. To Teach Obedience 05. The Death Of Longing 06. Our Holy Rue 07. The Night-born 08. The Pyre Glade 09. In Cruel Fire 10. A Pact Of Blood 11. The Merchant Fleet 12. A Cross Of Wheat

4 - ROME - BAND 2 AUFBRUCH OR A CROSS OF FIRE - (CD) 
TRISOL


PART 2 OF THE TRILOGY "DIE AESTHETIK DER HERRSCHAFTSFREIHEIT". Here, ROME present a stylistic and emotional potpourri where all manner of things are on offer: rousing folk numbers with an almost seditious air, dark romantic ballads as well as intimiste collages. Without ever becoming enslaved to one particular ideological alignment or descending into nihilism, the song cycle portrays the history of the libertarian/revolutionary movement within Europe and at the same time underlines the human importance of such an endeavour. After volume 1 tried to capture the initial spark of a revolt, the strength of an awakening, volume 2 concerns itself with the beauty of the righteous fight and also the constantly impending danger of it becoming perverted. "We must doubt ourselves. The clarity of our intentions, the profundity of our thoughts, the benevolence of our deeds! We must doubt our own truthfulness! Do lies not already linger in them again?" - Ilse Aichinger

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Brute Engine 02. Seeds Of Liberation 03. To Each His Storm 04. Sons Of Aeeth 05. August Spies 06. To Be Governed 07. Families Of Eden 08. Red Years - Black Years 09. Little Rebel Mine 10. The Breaking Part 11. Eagle And Serpent 12. A Cross Of Fire

5 - ROME - BAND 3 AUFBRUCH OR A CROSS OF FLOWE - (CD) 
TRISOL


PART 3 OF THE TRILOGY "DIE AESTHETIK DER HERRSCHAFTSFREIHEIT". "Art holds a unity that history does not" - it is not without good reason that this slogan is preposed to the third part of the trilogy. Art should not be confused with reality (Brecht) and thus ROME preserve the necessary critical distance from the subject without sinking into formlessness. At the same time they succeed equally in illustrating the warm-heartedness of their protagonists and demonstrating the unity of art and the struggle for freedom. From Plato to Nietzsche or Marx, all innovators mistrusted art, even though it is inseparably connected to revolt, because artists also want to create the world anew. AUFGABE formulates the possibility of a higher set of ethics beyond the current economic system; ethics, whose fundamental principles are those of generosity and universal freedom. It is the appeal for the cultivation of life-affirming, moral and life-enhancing, aesthetic values. To turn ones own life into a work of art, to give yourself to this work: that is the desired stance. As Conrad expressed it: the objective of the artist is to see that justice is done to the invisible universe. This is exactly what Jerome Reuter has done here. "The way everything is at the moment, I say, for the intellectual and cultured person to haughtily look down upon the social and the socio-political realms is an erroneous approach which is contrary to life. The political and the social are part of the human." - Thomas Mann

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Conquest Of Violence 02. All For Naught 03. You Threw It At Me Like Stones 04. Automation 05. Time And Tide 06. Dawn And The Darkest Hour 07. Years Of Abalone 08. Petrograd Waltz 09. Disbandment 10. Ballots And Bullets 11. Appeal To The Slaves 12. A Cross Of Flowers

7 - ROME - CONFESSIONS D'UN VOLEUR D'AMES - (CD) 
TRISOL


This second album is calmer and rather more personal than "Nera". These confessions are often dark and poetic, sometimes brutal, but most of all intimate. Again you will find traces of all kinds of genres of obscure music; ambient, neo-classical, dark wave, apocalyptic folk, martial industrial. ROME couldn't care less about boundaries of genres. However, the tone is less militant, the main themes being treachery and sacrifice, temperance and composure. With a distinctive slice of suicide pop fiddled into their exquisitely dark sound, ROME has established itself as one of the most lively and interesting experimental folk acts up and about. These confessions prove that ROME has become a force to be reckoned with.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ni Dieu Ni Maitre 02. The Consolation Of Man 03. Le Carillon 04. Der Wolfsmantel 05. Querkraft 06. The Torture Detachment 07. La Voile De L'oubli 08. The Joys Of Stealth 09. This Twisted Crown 10. Novemberblut 11. Wilde Lager 12. L'adieu Aux Anciens

8 - ROME - CORIOLAN - (CD) 
TRISOL


ROME enthusiasts worldwide might be aware of the fact that mastermind Jerome Reuter likes to throw in a little Shakespearian quote now and then, but this release, based on the story of one of the most opaque of Shakespeare's tragic heroes, Coriolanus, comes as a welcome surprise nonetheless. The [mini-]album "Coriolan" (alternative spelling of Coriolanus) is a wild ride through different musical genres; from the marching loops of "Investiture" to the fire-spitting post-punk riffing on "Fragments", from the instant dark wave classic "Broken", to the Wagnerian title track ballad: "Coriolan" is as multi-faceted as it is enjoyable and with the song "Der Krieg" this release holds a particularly interesting surprise, especially for ROME's German fans. ROME deliver an uncompromising and eclectic mini-album and have noticeably and successfully returned to former levels of sound and production quality. Given the diversified nature of this release, it remains to be seen where Jerome Reuter will want to take his supertanker next...

TRACKLISTING: 01. Investiture 02. Make You A Sword Of Me 03. Broken 04. Fragments 05. This Light Shall Undress All 06. Coriolan 07. Der Krieg 08. Funeratio

9 - ROME - FESTER - (CD) 
TRISOL


FESTER is a ritual fight with ones own personal demons, a journey not devoid of self-derision. Thesetwilight songs are like a glimpse into a world of otherness. ROME was founded on forward motion(,Bewegung entsteht durch Haltung") and like a true moloch it expels its dead. With 8 critically acclaimedand remarkable (concept) albums in as many years, ROME have built a considerable following in theworlds darker musical scenes. Yet, the myth of this ROME is cast in the future tense. This ROME remainsvibrant and far removed from the shorthand of conventional imagery, from the distortion of nostalgia - theinarticulate contempt for the present and fear of the future. On FESTER this contempt is quite articulateand one can taste the fear that lies at the root of it all. This record brings ROME back to the city, back to thegutter and into the actual world of its author, JEROME REUTER

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fester (single Version) 02. Silverstream (single Version) 03. The Beast Pain 04. Le Vertige Du Vide (jr)

10 - ROME - FLOWERS FROM EXILE - (CD) 
TRISOL


Flowers from Exile is just as much an emotional as a critical work. The personally stamped album of a modern singer-songwriter which tells of journeys both within and without. Jerome Reuters moving vocals and Patrick Damianis complex musical arrangements leave the musical roots of folk far behind and send these flowers from exile to all listeners who are willing and capable of feeling the dignity, the hope and the pride behind the lyrics and who are prepared to recognise themselves in those restless spirits whom the twelve part song cycle conjures up. Into the heart. Tracks: 01 To a Generation of Destroyers 02 The accidents of Gesture 03 Odessa 04 The secret sons of Europe 05 The hollow self 06 A legacy of unrest 07 To die among strangers 08 A culture of fragments 09 We who fell in Love with the sea 10 Swords to rust - Hearts to dust 11 Flowers from exile 12 Flight in formation.

13 - ROME - HELL MONEY - (CD) 
TRISOL


code and incorporating all kinds of elements from history to philosophy and musical expressions into one catchy collection of songs within an industrial-ish, brainy collage. ,Hell Money" is different. Youve most likely heard Jeromes voice as coming from the depths of pan-European wisdom, toying with poetic elements from expressionism to post-modernism, with each word of poetry sucking you way more into a sweet world of oblivion, a soothing chanson crooner indebted to the traditions American and European folk. ,Hell Money" is different. Youve come to love ROMEs concept collages, shedding new light on the realities of the world and its history, whilst giving a voice to the downtrodden. ,Hell Money" is -yet again- different. ,Hell Money" is an emotional tour-de-force through the twisted inner workings of a tormented individual. A journey into a heart of sadness, where greed, addiction and self-immolation have taken their toll on sanity. The songs remain fragmentary and crude. The voice on this album is not the voice of reason, it is an individual unashamed, yet deeply tormented by the demons that have come to haunt it. The music is built primarily by an anger-driven acoustic guitar and a voice bereft of poetic hipness. No martial drums, no retro-sampling, but drums and sampling nonetheless. ,Hell Money" is sparse, crude, intimate, sick... and ultimately honest.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Tangier Fix 02. Fester 03. This Silver Coil 04. Rough Magic 05. Among The Wild Boys 06. Amsterdam The Clearing 07. Silverstream 08. Tightrope Walker (wild Milk) 09. Pornero 10. Golden Boy 11. Red-bait 12. The Demon Me (come Clean)

15 - ROME - NERA - (CD) 
TRISOL


After a highly praised mini-CD, the expectations for ROMEs debut album were huge - And ROME delivered! ROME songs are full of citations, abstractions and ideals. The marching and counter-marching of doubtful armies luring our love away, with licit grace, icy and bitter irony. Gentle phantasms of desire; The reversal of sympathies; The aspects of eternity, spiritual hunger, treachery and corruption, shame and honour - being more than mere traps for the unsophisticated: These are some of "Nera's" interlocking themes in a world scorched by the wastefulness and cruelty of war. "Nera" is the meticulous patience of rage. Get it now and make it your friend, before it devours you! The first edition of this debut album has long been sold-out since its release in 2006. Trisol is both honoured and proud to finally make this release available again. Due to Jerome's constant changes of address during the CMI-years some original artwork files have been lost to time.

16 - ROME - NOS CHANTS PERDUS - (CD) 
TRISOL


Re-release in digipak! Over a series of remarkable concept albums, the Luxembourgish band ROME have developed a totally unique poetry of longing which rings out from the dark melancholic mist of rootlessness and which gives expression to a comprehensive feeling of modern forlornness. The protagonists of their music are the unintentional rebels of Camus (The Rebel; original: LHomme rvolt), contemporaries from the turbulent epochs of the 20th century: the banished and the hunted; the despised and the misunderstood - always enemies of dictatorship. This is what the songs of Jerome Reuter are about, firmly in the tradition of his declared heroes JACQUES BREL and LOE FERRE, (on earlier albums also TOM WAITS and NICK CAVE). As regards content, Rome are inspired by world literature and the observant listener will be able to detect references to and quotations from ALBERT CAMUS, MARCEL PROUST, JEAN-PAUL SARTRE and JEAN GENET.The first STRICTLY LIMITED edition comes as: CD in digibook format. Hardcover-book bound in linen with special black hotfoil debossing 40-pages extra-booklet, precious semi matte art print on selected high-quality paper and with elaborate "Singer" thread stitching.
