It’s time for a new chapter in the story of Italian band Soul Secret, as the band will release their brand-new album Blue Light Cage to the world on the 23rd of October 2020! Shine Again is in many ways a taster of what the new album is about!
Here is Soul Secret’s special charity track called Shine Again. The song was recorded, produced and filmed in a record tempo from many different home studios bringing together a coherent whole that represents unity. The song’s audio and video are produced by Tom De Wit (TDW, Dreamwalkers Inc) who also does guest vocals on this track. The song will be mastered and finalized by Rich Hinks who is known for his work with Aeon Zen & Annihilator. The artwork for the song was made by Claudio Casaburi. By buying this track you will support the fight against COVID-19 as all proceeds will be donated to the WHO and the research they are conducting.
Soul Secret now releases a brand new music video for the song The Ghost Syndicate which will be featured on their upcoming album! And the band really pushed this one to the next level, featuring synth solo’s by the one and only Derek Sherinian and a host of great Italian actors!
The Ghost Syndicate is the first music video for Soul Secret’s upcoming album Blue Light Cage showcasing the band’s new sound that will be heard on the new album! This cinematic music video underlines Soul Secret’s statement of intent in a dramatic fashion. Featuring ripping synth solo’s by none other then Derek Sherinian (Sons of Apollo, Planet X, Alice Cooper) and the acting talents of Walter Lippa who is known from his work on Gommorah among other things.
The band showcases their trademark melodic progmetal sound on their fifth record, exploring their sound more than ever before. Ranging from more intimate calm musical moments to more groovy metal sections. All topped off with the sense of melody the band has been known for years now.
The artwork for this record was made by longtime collaborator Nello Dell’Omo, who was responsible for the artwork for the bands’ debut album Flowing Portraits back in 2008. Mixing and mastering was done by Jacopo Pettini & Alessandro Guasconi at Virus Studio in Siena (Italy).
Featuring guest solo spots by the likes of Derek Sherinian (Sons Of Apollo, Planet X etc) and Marek Arnold (Seven Steps To The Green Door) among other new musical ideas brought in by all band members, this album is one that maybe will both delight and surprise new listeners and longtime fans!
