With a view to bands like DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT, OMEGA MASSIF
(R.I.P), or PHANTOM WINTER, Würzburg is by no means a white spot
on the map when it comes to relevant modern heavy acts. A SECRET
REVEALED, active since 2012, have also to be kept in mind. What the
musicians themselves call post-metal means the combination of various
metal styles and post-core accents to a higher quality, organic
massive sound. Addressing this, the quintet from Southern Germany
primarily focuses on unfiltered, intensive processing of emotion.
This is how A SECRET REVEALED got introduced on their debut album
“The Bleakness” in 2014. So it continues on their debut for LIFEFORCE
RECORDS, “Sacrifices”. The title joins in the thematic orientation
and is conditioned by forward going attacks - with black metal
attitude - as well as indulging atmospheres - in which supporting
melodies are used - and despair at down tempo. A SECRET REVEALED
present a second full length album, which shows different or new
facets to the sound of the band. “Sacrifices” offers gracefully built
degrees of hardness and intensity and connects these harmoniously.
With Michael Heim (ex-NECROTTED), a new frontman has been on
board since the end of 2016. However, the change at the prominent
position has no effect on the musical development of the
Würzburg band. On “Sacrifices”, A SECREAT REVEALED explore more
than ever the musical boundaries between metal and post-core.
