Driven by making their own music and influenced by bands that have not followed conventional formulas, they begin this journey of self-discovery and experimentation. Finding in instrumental rock, a base from which to start.
Armed with two basses and a drums, the band has been drawing a path, which has been the guide, to be able to translate and land those ideas. The structures, nuances, melodies, rhythms and effects used in the composition of the songs and always seeking to be honest with what they do, have allowed the band to walk a thin line of complexity and aural simplicity, which in short, offers to those who listen to a great possibility of sensations.
“Más Humano” (2020), is the first unpublished material of the band, it is the result of 3 years of work from the composition stage and shows in detail the commitment to rock in general. This is reflected in the positive reactions from listeners to whom the band’s material has reached.

Secret Stanley is the name of the band of the month in this Algazara capsule of #MúsicaÓsea. This musical trio is originally from Monterrey, Nuevo León that stands out for its experimental production similar to postrock and progressive metal.
The guys at Secreto Stanley have worked over three years to promote their debut EP titled MoreHuman this October, with a very well-kept mastering, as well as with a musical development in progress in which they begin to compose their first tracks to discover their own style.
The recording consists of 6 tracks in which we can appreciate the great work of the bass on each of the tracks, marked by clear progressive metal trends. The drums and guitar have an effusive step that refers to the energy of rumble throughout the album in which we can perceive the versatility and creativity of each track.
It should be noted that on the sixth track there is a collaboration of the band with the bassist Kello González (Parazit),who has the role with his synths,thus showing witty and enjoying the production by making it very enjoyable.
It’s definitely an album that won’t bore you while you’re working during confinement or, if you’re resting, it will be an EP that will relax you to continue the activities of the circumstances in which we are living.
Congratulations on the work that these northerners are doing and we hope that the second material they are preparing will have a dynamism and group work as well executed as this one.
Brilliant Mexican instrumental trio of post rock, using layered textures of atmospheric, cinematographic, progressive and metal.
Mas Humano is a very well structured album with creative melodies in chords, riffs, twisted and twisted by two basses that are intertwined between the base and solo in an amazing way with a richness never seen before of performance and resourcefulness, guided by an exquisite and vigorous drums .
Innovative, creative, technical, and competent translates this album with mastery, a delight for lovers of good music.
Anxious for the second album, it was a privilege to appreciate this preciousness, the band’s success.
