Trieste, Italy’s crushing quartet THE SECRET are set to drop their upcoming Solve Et Coagula full-length via Southern Lord Recordings this September 28th.

The album runs rampant with dismantling breakdowns, gargantuan, swelling riffage and jackhammer blastbeats, all empowered by the most shredding vocal attack.

While surely reminiscent of Converge, Cursed and labelmates Black Breath, THE SECRET integrate as much influence from filthy politi-crust acts, as well as psychoti...
