EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: JUST WHAT DO THE SECRET HAVE AGAINST GUIDOS ANYWAY??
When I first highlighted The Secret in September based on their ripping new track “Double Slaughter” I described them as “dirty as fuck black metal-meets-hardcore,” and now that I’ve heard their new album Solve Et Coagula in its entirety, I really can’t think of a description that’s any better. The body and soul of The Secret’s fast-paced, fuzzed out, frenetic attack lies in the hardcore bands I’m betting these guys listened to growing up, but they’re clearly metalheads too that pride themselves on incorporating elements from all over the metal spectrum; a tinge of black metal melodies and chord voicings, a blast beat here, a doomy slow-down there. It’s a mix that’s sure to punish, decimate, destroy, and <insert superlative here>.
