Fifth Angel Band

Fifth Angel recently put the finishing touches on their first new album in almost 30 years, The Third Secret, which will be released on October 26th. The album features the incredible talents of guitarist and lead vocalist Kendall Bechtel, bassist John Macko and drummer and backing vocalist Ken Mary. Says bassist John Macko, “When we began this process, we always were mindful to write songs that moved us as a band first. We felt that if we achieved that, then the music will most likely touch our fans as well.” Adds lead vocalist and guitarist Kendall Bechtel, “We are very proud of the new album! We hope the fans will hear the classic threads of the Fifth Angel they know and love, along with the growth and maturity the individuals of the band have gone through over the years. We hope they love the new songs as much as we do!”

Today the band reveals the album cover artwork (see below), created by Zsofia Dankova (Powerwolf a.o.) as well as the tracklist:

Fifth Angel will release their first digital single and lyric video for “Can You Hear Me” on September 7th. The album pre-order will start on the same day.

The Seattle music scene in the mid 1980’s was a breeding ground of exceptional talent. “Heavy Metal” was a new wave of music that was beginning to sweep the globe, and Fifth Angel was one of the forefathers of the legendary Seattle music scene that also produced iconic bands such as Queensrӱche and Metal Church. In 1984, high school friends Ted Pilot (vocalist) and Ed Archer (guitarist) teamed up with lead guitarist James Byrd. They filled out the lineup with drummer Ken Mary (Alice Cooper, House of Lords) and bassist John Macko. Inspired by the success of Queensrӱche, who shunned playing clubs for the sake of writing, recording and releasing their own music independently, Fifth Angel followed a similar path.

Fifth Angel is:
Ken Mary | drums
John Macko | bass
Kendall Bechtel | vocals, guitars
