Modern riffs and an alternative approach to a distinct melodic sound are the main elements of SECRET CHORD, a promising portuguese metal band, born in 2015 in the city of Vila Nova de Poiares, district of Coimbra.
After two years of dedication and persistence in search for their own kind of artistic expression, SECRET CHORD released a 4-track EP called “Dimensions of a Dream”, leading the group to be recognized within the national heavy music circle and allowing a consistent number of shows at various venues and small festivals across the country.
In 2018, SECRET CHORD decided to present a new single titled “Wraith Of Oblivion” and released it as their first official music video, presenting an evolution towards a darker concept of sound and image.
Over the course of 2019, SECRET CHORD consolidated its position delivering powerful live performances and thriving on its new path.
The unexpected confinement period of 2020 led the band to focus on the creative process, resulting in a set of new songs that formed their full-length debut album titled “AURORA”, recorded, mixed and mastered at Golden Jack Studios, Coimbra, released on 03/12/2021.
One of the band’s main goals was fulfilled in 2023 when they went on a EUROPEAN TOUR with the brazilian band Semblant! The year was also to prepare the new work that will begin to be released at the end of 2023, but the new album will be released only in 2024.
After undergoing some formation changes in his brief career, the formation of SECRET CHORD currently has Raquel Subtil as vocalist, Carlos Pereira as guitarist and vocalist, João Conceição also as guitarist, Afonso Martins as drummer and Nuno Fidalgo as bassist.
