Promising Stoner From Wisconsin

Thanks to Jeff from the band Romero for sharing the digital copy of their stunning 7" single!
Romero is a pretty new and heavy Stoner Rock/Doom/Metal trio from Wausau, Wisconsin, U.S.A. Their single Solitaire is a real promise for the future. I hope these guys are working on a full-length album, because I want to hear more from this band!
According to their MySpace Romero is influenced by the following bands: Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer, The Who, High On Fire, Melvins, Sleep, Clutch, Kyuss, The Sword, Neurosis, Torche, Sunn O))) And Floor.
The Solitaire single contains two awesome tracks, especially the song Solitaire is a masterpiece. This track has a very great slow groove! The second track El Sentido Morboso reminds me somehow of the Swedish band Lowrider.
There are only 500 copies pressed of this single, so be fast! Order your copy on their MySpace page. Enjoy!

Romero's Jeffrey Mundt spent most of the 90's behind the drum kit for a variety of bands including Bovine Records' THUG & punk legends, NAKED AGGRESSION. A long-time guitar player & songwriter, he often dabbled in fronting a band, but never pursued it seriously. Enter: a move to northern WI, a random Craigslist ad from bass player Josh Stanchik, a casual 8 month writing and recording session (with Mundt handling vocals, guitar & drums!) & Romero was born! Intent on creating a demo to locate & convince a drummer to work with them, Mundt & Stanchik were about a month from completion when... a drummer found them! Rumors of the project peaked the interest of PONEY drummer & vocalist Ben Brooks and he gleefully volunteered before even hearing a single note. Good thing he eventually liked what he heard!

ROMERO started playing live immediately. Very often. First, locally...then, nation-wide!

ROMERO spreads like a weed.
