Paul Romanko On Sonic Simplicity
SHADOWS FALL BASSIST PAUL Romanko talks of his desire to craft “simple” bass lines, but even a cursory listen to his band’s brutal sonic assault raises questions about that descriptor. Straightforward and effective, perhaps, but simple … not so much. Romanko’s no-frills approach comes from nearly 15 years of developing his sound with the melodic metalcore outfit, working diligently and scientifically in the studio to hone his tone. The Grammy-nominated band has just embarked on a world tour in support if its new release, Retribution.
