Pride & Joy Music is delighted to announce the signing of Italian Progressive Metal band Soul Secret for the release of their fourth album ‘Babel‘ which will be released on July 28th, 2017. Songs from this record will premiere live in Germany at the band’s opening performance for this year’s Night Of The Prog Festival at the Loreley on July 14th, opening for none other than Mike Portnoy.
Soul Secret are an Italian progressive metal band based in Naples. After a long time playing together, they hit the market in 2008 with their debut album ‘Flowing Portraits‘, published by ProgRock Records and with Mark Basile (DGM) as guest singer on the whole album. This album was highly praised by the critics and let them play on stage together with bands like Pendragon, Vanden Plas and Subsignal. After three years the band published ‘Closer To Daylight‘ under Galileo Records, a heavier album featuring Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band) on “River’s Edge” and Arno Menses on the acclaimed 16+ minutes suite “Aftermath”. After playing together again with Subsignal and Vanden Plas, the band decided to change the singer and to start working on a new album. While writing it, they played together with Haken and Neal Morse Band. Their third release, called “4”, was their first concept album and released on April 10th 2015 (October 4th in USA) by GoldenCore Records and distributed by Zyx Music.
Their new album, titled ‘Babel‘, will be released by Pride & Joy Music on July 28th 2017 and will be previewed at Night Of The Prog, opening Mike Portnoy’s show. ‘Babel‘ is a concept album, covering topics like religion and love and ranging from classic progressive rock to more modern progressive metal, with influences from djent, electronic and latin music. The artwork was completely designed by Thomas Ewerhard and the mix handled by Alex Argento (Virgil Donati, Marco Sfogli).
