What's to say about Heroin In Tahiti.....one of, if not the, best purveyor of Italian Occult Psychedelia  (and one of the best bands recording today period).

" In Roman mythology, the murder of Remus by his brother Romulus is the key event that led to the founding of the city of Rome. But what if Remus overcame Romulus? Easy: rather than Rome, we'd have Remoria, the city that never happened.

We'll never know what Remoria would have looked like, at least compared to the Rome which still stands there 27 centuries after the ominous brother's sacrifice. But perhaps, the ghosts of Remoria still harbor under the so called Eternal City, as a kind of deforming mirror of the events, the shapes, the geometries and the values which lay on the surface.

In their new “alternate history LP”, Heroin In Tahiti explore the negative occult side of their native city, portraying the myths, the legends, the heroes and the tragedies of that original “what if”, and sinking into the abyss of Rome's psyche and griefs. "

(Soave Records)

" 'Remoria' is up there with 'Sun and Violence'...it is stunningly brilliant! It gave me that same fluttery feeling I had on listening to 'S&V' - the atmospheres they build and the soundscapes they conjure are there as is the jaw-dropping creativity. As much as this is an album bedded in 'negative occult' it still has a verve and a beguiling sense of mystery that brings a smile to the face (I say smile, maybe just open mouthed admiration). it is, in short, triumphant. It represents all that I love about Italian music...the arcane and ritualistic ethos, the creativity and imaginative use of sound and silence, the sheer 'fuck you' attitude of musicians who make music that they want to make and, more importantly, the instinct of true sonic masters who can manipulate noise to suit their own means. Fucking amazing!! "
