The Seattle music scene in the mid 1980’s was a breeding ground of exceptional talent. “Heavy metal” was a new wave of music that was beginning to sweep the globe, and FIFTH ANGEL was one of the forefathers of the legendary Seattle music scene that also produced iconic bands such as QUEENSRYCHE and METAL CHURCH. Coming back from a long hiatus, FIFTH ANGEL recently put the finishing touches on their first new album in almost 30 years, “The Third Secret”, which will be released on October 26th, 2018. The album features the incredible talents of guitarist and lead vocalist Kendall Bechtel, bassist John Macko and drummer and backing vocalist Ken Mary.
Says bassist John Macko, “When we began this process, we always were mindful to write songs that moved us as a band first. We felt that if we achieved that, then the music will most likely touch our fans as well.”
