Herald Of The End is the new album from the band Father`s Face.
The band has the roots of its history linked to the idea of a conceptual work around the classic of universal literature Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. It is around this goal, originally conceived by guitarist and vocalist Alessandro Marques that the quintet got together. In this project are gathered the diverse sources of musical influence that were assimilated by the members over the years, aiming to show originality, seriousness and solidity as some of the key features that compose the musical personality of the group.
