Thank you so much for visiting this page!  Take a look around, kick the tires & please help if you can.

We are ROMERO and we are a heavy rock band.  Our bio is around here somewhere...   Basically, we live to make records, tour and to make as many friends as possible along the way.

We made a full length record...it is called "Take The Potion".

The process of recording "Take The Potion" was very long, insanely challenging and extremely expensive.  Through loads of personal sacrifice and hard work, we finished with a piece of art that we can all be proud of.

We are so happy to finally be able to share this music with everyone.  So happy, in fact, that we are giving it away for free.  On January 29, 2013, our full length album "Take The Potion" will be available for free download from GRINDCOREKARAOKE.COM on multiple digital formats.  

We are raising funds here on KICKSTARTER to release the vinyl version of our album. This has always been our vision for the project, musically & artistically.  It is to be pressed on at least 3 different colors of Deluxe 150 gram vinyl.  Each color will be limited to 100 copies.  

IF THE GOAL OF $2500 IS MET..the money raised here will go directly to pay for the vinyl pressing.  The vinyl & jackets will be pressed, printed and assembled by United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN.  

We believe that our friends, family & loyal supporters from all over the world will ensure that our goal will be met.  

In order to make things more interesting...we are offering EXCLUSIVE rewards that are only being offered here!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We have gone to great lengths and have worked extremely hard to make sure that all of our "ducks are in a row". We are professionals and we work with professionals. However, once this project is funded, obstacles may arise. There could always potentially be delays in production...the pressing plant is very busy and can get unpredictably busier. Please understand that this project means everything to us and we will do everything we can to make sure our goals, and promises to you, are met. We will be in constant communication with the pressing plant and will offer updates to all of our wonderful backers.
