Boomkat Product Review:
Reportedly, The Secret were signed by Southern Lord on the strength of a freakishly brilliant demo submission, and if it sounded anything like the Italian black metallers' finished album you could understand why. Solve Et Coagula is a fearsome onslaught, delivered with a brutish efficiency within a fullsome, air-tight production. Following on from similarly strong material by fellow recent Southern Lord newcomers Black Breath, it sounds like the label's on an A&R roll... "Southern Lord are pleased to present their latest signing The Secret. Formed in 2003 in Trieste, Italy, The Secret are an output for rage, darkness and negativity, combining elements of crust/grind, primitive black metal, dark soundscapes and monolithic riffs that take the listener by the hand through a hallucinated trip towards a foggy and yet invisible tomorrow. Solve Et Coagula will be the band's third release and their first for Southern Lord. Sitting well alongside other newcomers to the Southern Lord fold, (Black Breath, Masakari), The Secret's latest full length will be a sonic interpretation of a total loss of faith in social system, religion, personal redemption and every institution.Their sounds combines elements of hardcore, noise, metal and post rock to create a dark, heavy yet dynamic sound topped by the noir and cryptic atmospheres of the lyrics. Influenced by bands from Meshuggah to Mogwai, The Secret's music is a complex and intense stream of consciousness which drives the listener through unexpected sound scapes."
