First out on CMI in 2007, this is the TRISOL re-edition dated 2011
Only a few months after the release of its first full-length album NERA, ROME is back yet again to show that it's here to stay.
CONFESSIONS D'UN VOLEUR D'AMES is a call from a world where love and despair are locked in an embrace.
A black craving in the fangs of war, the joys of stealth in a riot of blossoms.
This second album is much calmer and rather more personal than NERA.
These confessions are often dark and poetic, sometimes brutal, but most of all intimate. Again you will find traces of all kinds of genres of obscure music; ambient, neo-classical, dark wave, apocalyptic folk, martial industrial.
ROME couldn't care less about boundaries of genres.
However, the tone is less militant, the main themes being treachery and sacrifice, temperance and composure.
With a distinctive slice of military suicide pop fiddled into their sound, ROME has established itself as one of the most lively and interesting "martial" folk acts up and about.
These confessions prove that ROME has become a force to be reckoned with.
