The new single and lyric video for Order of Minerva is out now. “Dear Diary” is the band’s second single after their debut, Army of the Lost, dropped in 2022.

They are characterized by the presence of the charming but aggressive front woman, Elisabetta Furlanetto, and a team of skilled musicians dedicated to power progressive metal, although influenced by many other genres.

The whole project is a concept based on all the contradictions of modern society: the loneliness of mankind caused by social networks and other tools of isolation, exploitation of the earth’s resources, lack of goals for the younger generations, and to do this, the project sets all the events narrated in the songs in the not too distant future where water has become the most precious and expensive thing for humanity.

Cities are small strongholds in endless sandy deserts where large multinationals manage everything with violence, indifference and injustice and the poor try to survive. “Order of Minerva” is a secret group of insurgent anarchists who aim to share resources equally with everyone, but violence brings violence.
