Luxembourg's solo project Rome has returned with a new recording which shows him expanding on his mixture of neo-folk, industrial and martial from his previous release with elements of punk and European pop music and this is a review of his 2021 album "Parlez-Vous Hate?" which was released by Trisol Music Group.
Choirs and clean vocals start off the album before adding in some acoustic guitars which also brings in elements of neo-folk,. Electric guitars can also be heard at times while the music also shows an influence of punk rock at times and all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Industrial style beats can also be heard in some parts of the recording while the guitars also add in a decent amount of melody. Some of the tracks also show an influence of pop music along with some keyboards also being added into certain sections of the album and some tracks also add in martial style beats.
Most of the tracks also sounds very different from each other along with most of the drum beats also being programmed as well as one of the tracks also introducing whispered vocals onto the recording, some songs also add in spoken word parts and slide guitars. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover World War II and Totalitarian themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rome and if you are a fan of neo-folk, martial and industrial, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Parlez-Vous Hate" "Death From Above" "You Owe me A Whole World" and "Alesia". 8 out of 10.
