Germany’s punk legend ABWÄRTS was founded in Hamburg in 1979. Their first EP „Computerstaat“ managed to stay on top of the German Independent-Charts for over one year. During the following years ABW-RTS became one of the most innovative German bands and their mixture of punk and industrial cleared the way for many famous German bands like DAF, EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN, DIE TOTEN HOSEN or RAMMSTEIN. Such as their former records their new album „Rom“ is mainly affected by mastermind Frank Z and the result is sarcastic, cynical but very humorous. Produced by Rod Gonzalez from DIE ÄRZTE.
