Composer Roman Roy Keane is Artist who knows how to turn his music into a 'craft', isn't willing to compromise his 'gifts' (and rightly so), and who knows what to do with (and can admirably pull off) both the use of indisposable grunge and the long intro. Wonderfully composed, hauntingly beautiful, and intricately arranged, his music never stalls, drags, bores or whimpers aimlessly“- Noisehead.com Currently Roman is working on his own project.
