Based in Vicenza (Italy), FALL OF MINERVA started out in early 2011 and, like many other bands, simply gathered as a bunch of mates in some dude's garage and made a lot of noise, which resulted in début EP 'Sievert'. By late 2012, the band had established a solid line-up and agreed that their main goal was to share their music far and wide, with an aim to tour and play gigs as much as possible.
Along came follow-up EP 'Seasons', a Russian tour and two European tours with the band sharing stages with the likes of Devil Sold His Soul, Pianos Become The Teeth, Defeater, This Will Destroy You, and Counterparts just to name a few.
Influenced by Devil Sold His Soul, Cult Of Luna and Misery Signals, the band's sound is best described as atmospheric post-hardcore; crushingly heavy and uplifting all at once. Now, with the five-piece sounding stronger than ever, it's fair to say that début album 'Portraits' is a stunningly powerful release that displays in volumes what these guys are capable of.
Set for release via Basick March 25th, we are totally excited to be able to help Fall Of Minerva share 'Portraits' with you!
