Fall Of Minerva, a Vicenza (Italy) based project, got together in late 2011 and released their first EP “Fall of Minerva” which, alongside with the release of the video for “Sievert”, gave the band much more exposure, the chance to intensely tour Italy and, consequentely, the need to push themselves into a wider, international setting. In October 2013 the band released their 2nd Ep “Seasons”, followed by Russian and two European tours for promoting it and their second video for the song “The Lingering Agony Of An Exhausted Soul”. In the year of 2015 the band focused on the final composition and recordings of the first full-lenght and in November released the first single “Träume” announcing the new album.

The band’s vocalist Sido commented:

I can say that this record is both sides more agressive and more melodic at the same time, so it could be interesting to listen to these different sounds mixed together on the tracklist. Personally, I tried my best to give something more to this debut album, for example giving a melody to my voice, and I know my guitarists spent really a lot of time searching for the best sounds possible and composing songs of course.
This debut album contains really the best music we ever composed so far, and we are so proud of it. Even if it is hard to say “something new” when the amount of music is so, so hard to even realize it, I guess we can say that this record is a breathe of fresh air in the post-hardcore music scene, because of putting on it a lot of atmospheric, post rock, and post metal sound. So, give this italian band a chance, hope you won’t be disappointed
