Romano is well known in the music scene, having created album artwork for bands like CHIODOS, TRIVIUM, HATE ETERNAL, DEATH BY STEREO, THE ACACIA STRAIN, THE RED CHORD, GODFLESH, WITHERED, DÄLEK and many more. While there is a common thread running throughout his work, he regularly jumps through styles and mediums to construct a tailor fit to the particular band (project). Romano's artwork, while extensively researched also promotes flow and accident in process so to keep them from being static. The end result usually produces a visceral, initial response that upon closer examination reveals layers of esoteric references and humor.
Paul grew up, lives and works in Philadelphia. He refers to his home sometimes as "the Heavy Metal Bed and Breakfast" and it has definitely served as such over the years to many a band.
