Rose Rovine E Amanti is a musical project based in Rome, lead by Damiano Mercuri and aided by Noemi York Christian Valente and Giuseppe Lorenzoni.
The sound has changed through the years from pure neo-folk to a wider range of sounds.
The music is a brilliant mixture of acoustic neofolk-rock with some bitter songwritin’ tunes.
To describe their music we could mention artists like: Sol Invictus, And Also The Trees, David Bowie, Lucio Battisti, Leonard Cohen, Death In June, Current 93 and Jacques Brel’s style, all reinforced by a Mediterranean taste.
The music is inspired by religious visions of the medieval Catholic Europa, to cabaret grotesque pieces, to human madness, all explored with an inner spiritual strength.
Surely one of the best bands from Italy!
Cold Spring released the new Rose Rovine E Amanti album ‘Demian’ in April 2009.
