After 12 years, six albums, and tours around the world, singer Roberto “Ramon” Messina has decided to leave long-running Italian power metallers SECRET SPHERE due to musical differences.
Commented the remaining members of the band: “We are very thankful for what Roberto did for the band during all these years. We are friends before musicians. He was with us since the beginning and the fans are really close to his voice.
“The split happened during the recordings of the seventh album, but in a friendly way. We wish Roberto all the best for his future.
“We still have in our hands our best album so far and we are 100% concentrated to give to the band a new incredible voice.
“A new singer means to give a new face to the band and our fans deserve the best and we’ll give ’em the best!
SECRET SPHERE‘s sixth album, “Archetype”, was released in Europe in September 2010 via Scarlet Records. The CD was recorded at Authoma Studios and was produced by guitarist Aldo Lonobile and Federico Pennazzato. The album was mastered at Massive Arts Studio, while the cover artwork was handled by Gustavo Sazes.
