FIFTH ANGEL: Sign To Nuclear Blast & Announce New Album


Via Nuclear Blast: FIFTH ANGEL is extremely proud to announce their partnership with the Nuclear Blast Records family!

Says drummer Ken Mary, “Over the years, we have worked with some amazing record companies, such as RoadRunner Records, Shrapnel Records, and one of the biggest labels in the world, Epic Records. However, we are even more excited to be working with the Nuclear Blast family for one simple reason: the incredible people that run this company really love the music itself, and are themselves fans of great metal music. This indeed is a unique and astounding situation, and we could not be more excited to make this announcement of making Nuclear Blast our home! We also want to thank all of the metal warriors that have kept the spirit of FIFTH ANGEL alive and well for over three decades, and we are so very excited to finally…finally…finally announce the release of our long awaited new album «The Third Secret».”

Adds vocalist and guitarist Kendall Bechtel, “We also want to say a special thank you to Nuclear Blast for giving us the musical freedom to create the art that we feel best represents FIFTH ANGEL! We had an incredible and very long journey creating this record and we hope the fans love it as much as we loved making it for them. In the end, it is the fans of the music that keep it alive, and without you this record would not be possible!”

FIFTH ANGEL recently put the finishing touches on their first new album in almost 30 years «The Third Secret», which will be released in September of 2018. The album features the incredible talents of guitarist and lead vocalist Kendall Bechtel, bassist John Macko and drummer and backing vocalist Ken Mary.
