‘The Third Secret‘ 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!” The cover artwork was created by Zsofia Dankova (POWERWOLF a.o.).
In 2010, some 22 years after the Epic release of ‘Fifth Angel‘, the band was asked to headline the Keep It True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. Gathering many of the core members, the band prepared a blistering set of songs from the first two albums. The reception was incredible, with the sold-out crowd singing the lyrics to every song. FIFTH ANGEL again headlined the sold out 2017 Keep It True Festival as well and this positive momentum planted the seeds for a new album.
