The literary and philosophical subjects are just as diverse as the musical influences. The album features songs in the vein of Rome's trademark blends of Dark Folk ‘The Secret Germany', ‘Celine in Jerusalem' and Post Industrial Wave ‘Transference', ‘Skirmishes for Diotima'.
Moreover, fans will be delighted to find that the album also features a duet ‘Stillwell' with legendary Swedish singer and friend Thåström.
In many ways, ‘The Hyperion Machine' is a completely normal music album, and yet it is so much more than that. It forms a great, sensual commentary on the origins of the present, over and above the here and now.
