Frontiers Music Srl has announced the signing of Italy’s SECRET SPHERE to a multi-album deal.
SECRET SPHERE honors the heritage of big names in the metal scene by creating a very unique brand of symphonic power metal: catchy choruses, majestic arrangements, and a multitude of musical influences (from hard rock to progressive metal) make up the ingredients of their musical recipe!
The band was founded in the summer of 1997 by guitar player and composer Aldo Lonobile. With eight albums under the band’s belt, extensive tours, and great live shows around the world (including support slots for KING DIAMOND and GAMMA RAY and festival appearances at ProgPower USA, ProgPower UK, ProgPower Scandinavia, Metal Dayz, Gods Of Metal, and many more), SECRET SPHERE is one of the most exciting melodic metal bands around.
The band’s latest original release, the critically acclaimed “Portrait Of A Dying Heart” — the first to feature extraordinary vocalist Michele Luppi — received overwhelmingly positive reviews and praise from fans and was heralded worldwide as one the best melodic metal albums of 2012. Some of you may recognize vocalist Michele Luppi’s name as he was chosen to be the official keyboardist for the WHITESNAKE’s “The Purple Album” world tour.
Aldo commented: “As a fan of Frontiers for many years, I’m very excited to work with them! It’s such a great honour to read SECRET SPHERE name alongside many of my idols. Currently we are working on the final touches of our release ‘Live In Tokyo’, recorded during the headlining tour of Japan and the writing process for the new album is running smoothly. There is a huge message behind the new music again and we are focused more than ever to deliver the best SECRET SPHERE album to date!!! Later in 2016 we will be again on tour.”
Michele: “I’m truly happy to get to work again with the Frontiers family after seven years. We are determined to write the best SECRET SPHERE album ever — get ready!”
Frontiers plans to release the Live CD/DVD “Live In Tokyo” in the fall of 2016, with the new album expected to come in the early months of 2017.
