Hello everybody; I'm looking for bands (any sub-genre) whose lyrical themes are about the greatness of the Roman Empire. There's a lot of bands about celtic culture and all this stuff, but what about Rome? Do you guys know of any? Many thanks.

Ps. I got the Eternal Defiance, of Suidakra.

The italian band Ade perfectly fits the request, they even use replicas of ancient roman instruments in their songs!

there is also the more famous Ex-Deo (but i don't like it as much) and Dominion Caligula, dark funeral ex-singer's old side project
(wich is really good)

Virgin Steele have a lot of songs along those lines, "Burning of Rome" is probably the most specific to the Roman Empire but the Atreus albums are about Greco-Roman history/mythology (as should be obvious if you're familiar with the actual house of Atreus). Manilla Road have the 3 song saga in 'Gates of Fire,' which includes "The Fall of Iliam," "Imperious Rise" and "Rome." Tales of Medusa also has themes pertaining to Greco-Roman ideas, although I can't pick out specific lyrics song titles like "Legions of Medusa" and "Dionysian Procession" are pretty indicative.

Kataklysm's Epic - The Poetry of War is about the Roman empire, isn't it?
