Bombworks Records/Limited Run Vinyl is proud to reissue on vinyl the 2005 Metal Blade Records album Winter Solstice - The Fall of Rome. Limited to just 300 copies worldwide, this first-ever vinyl release comes in stunning Sunflare color vinyl that looks amazing.

Originally released in 2005 on Metal Blade Records, The Fall of Rome stands out in the metalcore scene for a couple of reasons. First, vocalist Matt Tarpey delivers a genuinely pained scream that virtually never lets up, adding a raw intensity to the music. Second, the production has a grainy and biting edge, eschewing the overly polished sound common in many metalcore albums.

The Fall of Rome is as metalcore as it gets—harsh, claustrophobic, ferocious, and extremely dense, with no trace of musical subtlety. While the lyrics subtly promote Christianity, much like many bands on Solid State/Tooth & Nail, the music itself is as skull-crushing as that of Hatebreed, Throwdown, Deadsoil, Brick Bath, or Rotten Sound. The riffs draw heavily from the Melodic-Death/Gothenburg style, adding a melodic yet brutal edge to the sound.

The 2024 Bombworks Records vinyl reissue includes a 12x12 full-color lyrics insert and has been meticulously mastered for vinyl by Rob Colwell (Sleeping Giant, Blessed by a Broken Heart, Iwrestledabearonce, In This Moment). Limited to just 300 Sunflare Vinyl units worldwide, this molten metal classic is a must-have. Grab your copy while you can!
