"To be governed is to be watched over, inspected, spied on, directed, legislated, regimented, closed in, indoctrinated. To be governed is to be preached at, controlled, assessed, evaluated, censored, commanded, all by creatures that have neither the right, nor wisdom, nor virtue..."

If you do not already know this band, then you have done yourself a great disservice. I discovered them only recently, but I have fallen for them, hard.

You tried to blind me!

Hearts to dust...

I don't even know where to start with this band, it's that indescribable feeling that you get when you know you've discovered something truly special, and it hits you hard. You're on your knees. Whimpering. So happy to know that such aural, sonic beauty exists.

We are drifting on without remembering.

Think of me as inanimate matter.

Go forth my friends and spread the word. I hope you love them as much as I do. They have a new album out this month that is phenomenal, and I suggest you go and track it down.

I need to soak in the new album more before I give a definitive verdict, but it is amazing from my cursory listening. I AM IN LOVE WITH THE TORTURE DETACHMENT THOUGH!!! I am going to do everything in my power to own every single one of their albums, and to see them in Switzerland in March.

I downloaded one of their albums, and it was pretty good. This is exactly what i am in the mood for at the moment, so i will continue checking this stuff out tomorrow.

Have you heard their early stuff? It's pretty dull... Stick with the more recent albums.

Cool you get to see them, seems like a nice guy:

I love Flowers From Exile the most, but the latest album is phenomenal as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N0hbGmz0eQ

Every song on this album is just so heartfelt and beautiful.

I'm hoping that I get to see them. I just saw right now that they're on tour, and I figured since I'll be in Europe then that I should definitely try and see them.

The newest trilogy is fantastic. Had to delete all of the spoken word bits though, including "to be governed..." haha.

What a good time for this thread. I just listened to Flowers of Exile for the fist time a couple days ago, and really enjoyed it. I cant believe I put off listening to them for so long. Now I just need to get on the new album. Three disks...jesus

I am also listening to Flowers From Exile, and while i slightly prefer the more bitter attitude of DI6, this is fantastic stuff.

Flowers from Exile is ****ing perfect, as was Nos Chants Perdus. The new one had too much filler but had some excellent tracks too.

Lies. Rome have yet to do anything that isn't of quality. Mass Mensch Material and Confessions D'un Voleur D'ames in particular are very good, although I do prefer Flowers From Exile.

I'd like to ask, why is this in the Metal forum? I'm not complaining 'cause it's AMAZING, just not sure why.

More violin music makes me a happy Morph though. <3

We are slowly trying to turn this into the "good taste" forum.

Listening to FIE, i love the triumphant pace in the 7th track.

I foresee many underground Progressive and Avant-Garde threads popping up in the future.

Which album is better out of "Confessions..." and "Masse Mensch Material" ? I might end up getting both of them I just want somewhere to go after Flowers (and I downloaded the new one)

Precisely. If I had not put this thread here, where would it go, "other?" Hardly anybody posts in that forum, and if Duncan has a problem with this thread, then he can close it if he so chooses. I just figured that most people here enjoy this type of music anyway, so why not put it here for us all to enjoy.

I also have to agree with Scourge that Rome has yet to disappoint me, but Flowers From Exile is probably my favorite album by far.

While Confessions does have The Torture Detachment which is my favorite song by Rome, I would say go with Masse Mensch Material next.

DO IT! I haven't stopped listening to this band since I found them last week. They've quickly shot to number 7 on my last fm charts. I cannot stress enough how amazing The Torture Detachment is though. It's my life right now.

Also, I just requested your companionship on last.fm Hellome.
