The Secret Solve Et Coagula

The Secret Solve Et Coagula
From their creepy imagery and dark atmosphere to a self-defined "pro-cacophony" motivation, Italy's the Secret are everything we've been loving and longing for since the dissolution of Toronto, ON's purveyors of abrasion Cursed. Sinister and coarse, the hyperactive coupling of chaotic screeching with detuned riffs and pummelled drums and cymbals inside black metal dissonance on Solve Et Coagula is equally nightmarish and exciting. In fact, one might argue that the Secret are incrementally more ravenous and incensed than their Canuck counterparts. The Secret are a gruesome beast that lumbers and scuttles toward their prey while uttering these freakish sounds like something out of a Japanese horror film. Only this flick never relents.
