English:

Secret Rule was founded in 2014 with the intention to create a powerful, melodic and rhythmically challenging sound. ‘Transposed Emotions’ was last year’s debut and already they’ve come up with the sophomore album.

‘Ex-Machina’ has a sombre pretty gothic sound with intricate keyboard layers in the background, fine soloing and the powerful voice of Angela. ‘Saviour’ is a faster and more nervous heavy piece with bombastic backing vocals and Angela using her voice more diversely. After a sombre ‘Sun’, catchy ‘Dolls’ rushes forward with some grunt as backing and again the great keys all over the place. The sturdier ‘Will’ even has heavy prog passages and melancholic guitar. ‘Image’s start offers a great peaceful haven and grows into sympho grandeur. In the rather calm ‘Trap’ they mix some industrial under the sympho. ‘Foolish’ gets a rough topping with some grunt. ‘Stories’ has superb keys and ‘Mother’ closes introspectively with sensitive soprano from Angela.

Great sound and performance, but too soon forgotten … nevertheless a band to watch!


Nederlands:

Secret Rule werd opgericht in 2014 met de bedoeling een krachtige, melodieuze en ritmisch uitdagend geluid te creëren. ‘Transposed Emotions’ was vorig jaar hun debuut en nu reeds komt de opvolger eraan.

‘Ex-Machina’ heeft een somber vrij gothic geluid met ingewikkelde keyboard op de achtergrond, goeie solo en de krachtige stem van Angela. ‘Saviour’ is een sneller en nerveuzer heavy nummer met bombastische backings en Angela die haar stem wat diverser gebruikt. Na een somber ‘Sun’, snelt catchy ‘Dolls’ vooruit met wat grunt als backing en weer grootse keyboard erover. Het steviger ‘Will’ heeft heavy prog passages en melancholische gitaar. ‘Image’s begin is een prachtig rustpunt en groeit uit tot symfonische grandeur. In het eerder rustige ‘Trap’ zit wat industrial in de symfo.
‘Foolish’ krijgt weer een rauw randje door wat grunt. ‘Stories’ heeft flitsende keyboard en ‘Mother’ sluit introspectief af met gevoelige sopraan van Angela.

Prima geluid en uitvoering, maar te snel vergeten … niettemin in de gaten houden!
