Right in time for their tour with Semblant in April, Italian Heavy Metal band SECRET RULE’s new and fifth album in total, “Against”, was released on Friday last week via Pride & Joy Music!


In support of “Against”, the band also has released two video clips to promote. The video for the track “Purgatory” now has crossed the 100.000 plays mark and can be watched here:



The second video, this time for the track “Shades Of Humanity” is found at the following URL: https://youtu.be/WrIF4mvxj9M


Some press feedback:

“An album suitable for fans of the lesser progressive Nightwish and Kamelot!” (Rock Hard, DE)

“All the elements of melody and dynamics are there in a grandiose collection of songs and it would be a miss not to alert the hoards of fans of Evanescence and Within Temptation to Secret Rule’s “on the same class” page.” (Power Play, UK)

“The Italians have developed significantly since the last production.” (powermetal.de)

“From the first couple of seconds of this album, I could tell I was going to like it. However, I was wrong, I did not just like it. I loved it!” (Über Rock, UK)

 “More electronical elements, more power & more own identity! Great performance!” (myrevelations.de)

“This is no ordinary concept album, i found its hypotheses a combination of human condition and that of the celestial, challenged on an unknown passage as cyber slaves.” (Rock Poser, UK)

“SECRET RULE is a damn good band!” (Hard Rock, SE)

“’Against’ is an excellent modern symphonic metal album which gives us songs with a dark style, with fast, heavy, forceful, energetic, romantic, and direct musical notes!” (Darkzen, MEX)

“Everyone who liked the band’s previous records, can buy this one blind!” (Crossfire, DE)

“Imagine a fusion of the best elements of Evanescence, Nightwish, Trivium, old elements from The Gathering with hard rock/heavy elements, and the listener can have an idea of what is expecting on this album. And the band shows an amazing flow of energy on each song.” (Metal Temple, GR)

“So, the question here is what we are going to hear from Secret Rule's newest effort? The answer is simple: modern melodic metal stuff with powerful performances, tons of melodies and some killer songs. For me, Secret Rule is one of the best new bands in this particular scene.” (Heavy Paradise, GR)
