Infos about the MCD:
'Fester' is a ritual fight with one's own personal demons, a journey not devoid of self-derision. These twilight 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 acclaimed and remarkable (concept) albums in as many years, Rome
have built a considerable following in the world's darker musical scenes. Yet, the myth of this Rome
is cast in the future tense. This Rome
remains vibrant and far removed from the shorthand of conventional imagery, from the distortion of nostalgia the inarticulate contempt for the present and fear of the future.
On 'Fester' this contempt is quite articulate and one can taste the fear that lies at the root of it all. This record brings Rome
back to the city, back to the gutter and into the actual world of its author, Jerome Reuter
: a world where the sacred and profound, history and eternity, man and god remain completely separated. Musically 'Fester' offers a mixture of what might be termed Murder Folk and Junky Ballads, far removed from the martial drum beats and retrosampling yet more anger-fueled than ever before.
Featuring two tracks from the album 'Hell Money' (in an exclusive alternate version), one exclusive track and a stripped-bare remodeling of the Rome
classic 'Le Vertige Du Vide' done 'Fester'-style!
'Fester' is strictly limited to 999 copies!
