Secret Rule, a young female fronted band from Rome,
Italy, is going to release their debut album "Transposed
Their style can be described as Gothic Rock with
influences of Power, Industrial and Modern Metal.
One can say that they threw many different elements
in a pot to make it a homogeneous whole and in some
way, it worked out really well. The music does not
sound overloaded. From time to time, you can also
hear some acoustic parts, which happen to be the
best parts of the album. Singer Angela's voice is
powerful and reminds me a bit of Cristina Scabbia
(Lacuna Coil). But I think you either like Angela's
voice or not, I think I belong to the second group.
Unfortunately, "Transposed Emotions" is a very
average album. Of course, there are some catchy
melodies and I think, the ballad "Vision" is a good
song... but that's it. I just can't find anything
special about the record. Also, an album recorded in
2014 could sound more professional and not like
knocked together in the home studio.
I just hope that the second album will be better,
because there is some potential, I can't deny that.
But Secret Rule didn't show the full extend of it
