Italian power metallers SECRET SPHERE have recruited an as-yet-undisclosed new lead singer following the recent departure of Roberto "Ramon" Messina. According to the band, the new vocalist is "inishing laying down vocals, and lyrics for the new album, and he's doing a huge amount of work in a very short time and he's constantly in touch with Aldo [Lonobile, guitar], updating the work process!"The group adds, "What can we say? He's great, really great, so please be patient as we wait for the right time to prepare a proper welcome to the family and we will introduce him to you all! Stay tuned, something great is coming!!!" After 12 years, six albums, and tours around the world, Messina decided to leave SECRET SPHERE due to musical differences. 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.
