THE SECRET Lash Out With Venomous New Track Via Pitchfork

By on October 12, 2012

With their fourth LP Agnus Dei nearing North American release on October 23rd via Southern Lord, Western Italy’s hate force THE SECRET drop another preview of their new album’s destructive nature.
The fifth track on Agnus Dei, “Post Mortem Nihil Est,” conveys its carnage with a more mid-paced rhythm than the majority of THE SECRET’s generally high-speed anthems, without coming up short on the band’s patented style of blackened hardcore detestation. States founding vocalist Marco Coslovich on the lyrical direction of the track: “The song is about people being in debt with society since the day they were born and having zero chance to get rid of it until the day they die.”
Let the hatesurge of “Post Mortem Nihil Est” defeat your fiscal optimism via Pitchfork RIGHT HERE.
The LP’s title track “Agnus Dei” can be heard via BrooklynVegan RIGHT HERE.
This November and December THE SECRET will storm Europe on tour supporting Converge, Touché Amoré and A Storm of Light, with much more tour action to be announced into the new year.
Since 2003 THE SECRET has waged musical warfare with their incendiary brew of metallic hatred, their songs constantly growing more caustic and intolerant with each release. Merging elements of crust, black metal and hardcore with the force of tectonic plates, constructed of monolithic riffs which take the listener through a hallucinated trip towards a hazy tomorrow, Agnus Dei was recorded by Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Converge, Black Breath) at Godcity Studios as was their previous album, Solve Et Coagula
