SECRET RULE was founded in 2014 by lead vocalist Angela Di Vincenzo, guitarist/producer Andy Menario & former bass player Michele Raspanti. The following year SECRET RULE released their debut album “Transposed Emotions”. The music of SECRET RULE is a blend of heavy guitar riffs, electronic elements, symphonic keyboard parts, and very powerful yet catchy vocal lines. Their sound is unique and intriguing.
Their energetic performances captivate the audience’s attention, leaving them spellbound each time.

In February 2018, SECRET RULE opened for Serenity and Visions of Atlantis on the “Symphonic Metal Nights tour”. It was a huge success that brought SECRET RULE to a higher level.
For the month of May 2019, The 7 Endless debuted at 20° in the Japanese chart among the best imported albums for the magazine “BURRN!”.
