More information: Three years after the well-received 'A Sleeper´s Awakening', a new album from Mattis Sorum´s Pictorial Wand has finally arrived. 'Face of our Fathers' is an album, compared to the former 'A Sleeper´s Awakening' a little more to the point maybe, a little more focused on the vocals, and clearer themes on each song. But the variation from the last album is absolutely there, with acoustic passages roaming through heavy music and further into the fantastic world of the analogue synths. A couple of great new vocalists and instrumentalists have been brought onto the set this time, together with some from the former album. It is a concept-album, like the Sleeper-album of course, and we follow the destiny of four characters fighting for what they believe in. The main theme of this album is how the former generations leave behind an inheritance for the next, and how they in turn try to deal with it. We will see a pulling between pride, reason, love and hope in the struggle for their own needs and believes and the fulfilling of what is expected of them from the former generations. The circle ends with father and son facing each other on the battlefield…
