Rome : A Passage to Rhodesia - CD Rome : A Passage to Rhodesia - CD  Ref: 21353 “ 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.
