referencing Art In Motion, Cass, Album, N 0157-4. An absolute secret tip for Prog fans is surely "Art In Motion", the debut of the formation SECRECY from Bremen. Originated from the ruins of the band SWEET CHEATER (1985 album "Immortal Instant" via Flametrader Records) in 1986, there had only been two members left, Manny Meccyca (guitars) and Alex Zasso (drums). The rest had been fired! Allegedly, there had been that infamous musical differences, because that two guys wanted to have a more progressive and sophisticated sound and the rest of the band couldn't deal with.

Germany's Secrecy is an unfortunately obscure progressive power metal band that faded after a short four-year career consisting of two demos and two full-lengths from 1988 to 1992. After their last demo, Set the Sails, was released; no other work has been released and the group largely faded into obscurity. A sad fate for a promising young band but fortunately, these gentlemen left us with some excellent work, especially with their debut full-length, Art in Motion. I prefer Art in Motion to Raging Romance but I'd still recommend it as it is still a great effort. In fact, their musical expansions and explorations on their sophomore release are the things that make me lament that this band didn't go further as I would have loved to see where they could have gone from there. What do you think of Art in Motion overall? Casavir April 27th 2018.

Random Album Recommendation: Art in Motion - 95%. Alex P, March 11th, 2011. I've been running a lot recently, and I've found that no music fits such exercise better than technical and progressive thrash metal, be it the intellichug of Mekong Delta, the Gothic drama of Depressive Age or the epic epicness of No Exit-era Fates Warning. There’s another record in this genre that I’ve been addicted to lately; Secrecy’s 1990 debut Art in Motion

Talk about Secrecy - Art In Motion


Stick
An absolute secret tip for Prog fans is surely "Art In Motion", the debut of the formation SECRECY from Bremen. Originated from the ruins of the band SWEET CHEATER (1985 album "Immortal Instant" via Flametrader Records) in 1986, there had only been two members left, Manny Meccyca (guitars) and Alex Zasso (drums). The rest had been fired! Allegedly, there had been that infamous musical differences, because that two guys wanted to have a more progressive and sophisticated sound and the rest of the band couldn't deal with that. In 1988, the very infamous "Like Burning One's Boat" demo had been released. And that is without any exaggerating one of the best and costliest demos ever!This demo brought them a deal with Noise and the first common pro-genies was the album "Art In Motion". Many of the demo tracks had been used again but now in newer versions and partially with another title. At that time, I was a bit disappointed due to the new arrangements and the production, because I loved that demo so much. But after some spins I have to commit, that the band sounds still pretty unique. The songs are partly very complexly arranged, but it's not highlighted by one technical wizardry after another. It's more because of the out of hand songwriting. This sounds pretty individual and I even don't know one only band today, which sounds a bit after SECRECY! Singer Peter Dartin is another discussion point. His teary voice will surely annoy some right up from the start. as does some find Geddy lee of RUSH to crawl up their spines But give this man a chance, because he is original - he's surely not that typical Metal shouter! The break-heavy songs are altogether very impressive and I don't want to pick one out. If you will find this inconspicuously made CD some day in a Metal market, get it! It's the time to discover one of the coolest German Metal acts of all time. The follower "Raging Romance" had been then a bit straighter, but still prog metal good! Then it was over with SECRECY. Shit happens, the critics had been overwhelming (demo) and today, it seems that nobody can remember this band. The biggest success in their band history should have been the common tour with SANCTUARY/FATES WARNING in 1990 ...
