Fake Heroes formed in February 2012 by the ideas of the guitarist and composer Gianni ‘ Draft Djentleman ‘ Vespasiani .
The initial genre of the band was mainly heavy rock / nu metal, inspired by contemporary American bands. In April 2012 they released the EP ” Beyond This Glass” and after that they started to play live and to participate to local and national festivals.
Drawing influence from experimental bands by the likes of Tool, Opeth, Radiohead and Devin Townsend with a pounding electro and pop edge, “Opus of a Machine” pushes the creative boundaries of alternative, progressive rock. With a large plethora of musical heroes, Opus of a Machine blends technical proficiency and raw emotion, bridging the gap between the two. The first single, Parallels displays the more pop-orientated, hard-hitting side of Opus of a Machine, melding mechanical and electronic aesthetics with dense and introspective hard-rock orchestration.
