Biography

There are several artists under this name (none of which are to be confused with The Secrets):

1. From the conclusion of From the Dying Sky, The Secret was born in Trieste, Italy in 2003. Their sound “combines elements of hardcore, noise, metal, and post rock to create a dark, heavy yet dynamic sound topped by the noir and cryptic atmospheres of the lyrics.” The Secret’s music is a “complex and intense stream of consciousness which drives the listener through unexpected soundscapes.” There are “polyrhythmic breakdowns, dark atmospheric passages, and heavy mosh parts . … blended with surgical precision.” The Secret is Marco Coslovich, Michael Bertoldini, Federico Lodolo and Christian Musich. All quotations extracted from artist’s biography at www.goodfellowrecords.com.

2. The Secret formed in 1991 in Boston, Massachusetts U.S.A.
The Waiting E.P. was released in 1994 for Lo-Z Records.


3. The Secret are best remembered for their live PA’s at the legendary trance night Escape From Samsara at the Brixton Fridge in London where they played regularly on rotation with other acts such as Cybernaut and Lab 4 in the mid/late 90’s. These sets typically featured the trio leaping around like loonies on stage behind their equipment while knocking out a fantastic array of energetic uplifting hard trance tunes, notably the anthemic ‘Tribe’.

4. The Secret, later known as Von Guarde, were an indie rock band from Bowling Green, KY that were active from 2003-2008.

    Why grindcore isn't in the top tags is beyond me, especially when "experimental" is.

    Are people still listening to LUCE at all? Just dug it out of my collection... good times when it came out, I was all about it.

    Metalcore was actually first used to describe bands such as Integrity, Merauder, All Out War, Morning Again and Earth Crisis. Metalcore is in fact a proper term describing the energy and attitude of hardcore combined with the brutality and heaviness of metal. In that respect (to me at least) bands like Parkway Drive are not "real" metalcore.

    If you go on their band page (facebook), they are self described as "Grindcore, Hardcore, Black Metal, Delay pedals".

    Some of the best bands are those fan find hard to categorize. The Secret have a bunch of influences, I feel a heavy crust vibe myself. I don't know what to call them except killer.

    By metalcore I think most people are using it in its original context, as in 'metallic hardcore', which it clearly is [2] Yup.

    These tags are so off. If anything The Secret is primarily Grindcore with Black Metal influences.

    I-C_: actually, they toured as support for Deafheaven on their euro tour this spring. So they have worked together in that sense. But a split 7" or something would be awesome.
