New Southern Lord Signing: The Secret

Southern Lord have announced their newest addition to their arsenal of bands, Italy’s The Secret. After two albums for Goodfellow Records and several line up changes since their inception in Trieste, Italy in 2003, The Secret will enter Godcity Studio in Salem, MA with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Cave In, Torche) this April to record their third album, Solve et Coagula, for Southern Lord Records.

Southern Lord describe The Secret, several times, as “monolithic,” and I have to agree. Their sound is massive, crushing, and intense: it grabs you like the tentacles (or mouth) of the Sharktopus and doesn’t let go. Have you ever wondered what Burning Witch would have sounded like if they were a punk band? Me neither, but I think The Secret sound pretty close to what that might sound like…maybe.

There’s no release date yet but, um, sometime this year would be my guess.
