*Rock Sound Magazine (8/10) "It’s this synthesis of brooding atmosphere and pure nihilistic rage that grants The Secret their edge, making ‘Solve Et Coagula’ essential listening."
*Roadburn.com (album of the day) "So fucking awesome. Heavy music obsessives of all stripes (black, doom, post, crust) should for sure check this out…"
*Room Thirteen (11/13) "For grind enthusiasts this record is a must; dark, brooding, fast, nasty and really excellent, making you remember all your favourite old school bands but also fixing your eyes firmly on the future"
*Exclaim Magazine - "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."
*Impure Lard - "I can't remember the last time an album has completely surpassed every preconceived expectation that I've had for it. HOLY FUCK! I thought their previous release Disintoxication was good but wow...this is on a completely different level of brutality"
*Sleeping Shaman - "Technically, this is blunt-nosed ferocity at its finest - frantic-paced powerhouse drumming, circling, scything post-Gothenburg-underground guitars and other-wordly bellowing howl like a werewolf hungry for blood."
