Ever feel like life is shallow, unjust and devoid of meaning?
Ever feel like life is shallow, unjust and devoid of meaning? Well, hold that thought, because Italian crust antagonists The Secret are here to confirm your suspicions in the most brutal, unsympathetic manner possible. Swarming feedback and distant, grief-stricken cries greet the listener on doomed-up opener ‘Cross Builder’, but it isn’t long before they step things up a gear, unleashing furious blastbeats and razor-gargling vocals, sounding something akin to a more grind-orientated Cursed. It’s this synthesis of brooding atmosphere and pure nihilistic rage that grants The Secret their edge, making ‘Solve Et Coagula’ essential listening.
