Southern California metal band The Secret VI are set to release their new Ep, Mixed Episode on 11 September 2015 via Vanity Digital Music / Vanity Music Group.
Comprised of three tracks, “Plastic Smile,” “You’re All Bark” and “Driven,” Mixed Episode takes the band away from the death metal leanings of their 2012 demos and into a much more melodic metal direction.. “I love all kinds of metal, including bands like Morbid Angel and Slayer,” says guitarist and founder member, Scotty Ch, “so my writing took a swing in that direction for a while but now we’re down to straight forward in your face metal.”
Lyrically the songs on Mixed Episode touch on subjects ranging from fake people (“Plastic Smile“) to a very stern warning to potential enemies (“You’re All Bark“) and finding inner strength (“Driven“). Singer Marc Padgett tends to pull lyrical creativity from a bi-polar disorder, “Writing and performing music helps me release emotions that I’m unable to unleash any other way,” says the frontman. Being able to create is something that only comes around here and there for me and I never want to miss the train once it stops rolling.”
Mixed Episode‘s release will be preceded by a single and lyric video for “Plastic Smile.“
