In the debut Secret Villains offering, inspired by wrong number phone calls and techno-apocalypse, we follow the nostalgic naturalist Arthur Lan. From the jovial sounds of a new morning, to the dark depths of midnight in the mountains, the landscapes in this tale are as vast as the soundscapes. With characters ranging from the Uber-intelligent Dr. Rex Urthane and his arsenal of minion machines, to the citizens of Wake who trade their personal values in exchange for safety as a member of the Endless Nameless, there is an abundance of personality and perspective offered up in this feature length album. Alas, it is the introduction of Vile Venomous, the mastermind of all Secret VIllains projects to come, that makes this album the essential introduction to this group.
Secret Villains presents this particular album to challenge your expectations.
This is not the first album from a band of musicians, this is a return to sonic entertainment like that of the early radio years, with a modern perspective.
