The SECERT SOCIETY comments: “We are really looking forward to finally be able to make SECRET SOCIETY official and show the fans what great music and collaborations we created and show that we´ve been able to do an album the way we want to do it with collaborations worldwide with singers we wanna work and cowrite with.Songwriting,arrangement and performance with fierce energy and hunger we´re very proud of THE INDUCTION! and we looking forward continue with new and old collaborations for the next one as well!”
Rick Altzi: "Im happy that I was able to contribute to this album with the song 'Monsters'. The song is about the things in our mind that doesn’t allow us try new things, that makes us afraid of changes and the fear of failure. We need to learn and control the monsters in our head coz monsters don’t exist, or do they?"
Ronny Munroe: "When Secret Society asked me to sing on there new record it didn't take me long to say yes as I am a fan their work. I'm in good company on this record with Paul Sabu, Rick Altzi, Troy Norr and Joe Basketts also performing. The song 'Broken Crutch' is a staright ahead Metal song with the message of not using excuses to get through life. I'm excited for everyone to hear it. Cheers!"
Paul Sabu: "A great time and privilege to work with good friends on their new project Secret Society! Sweden must put something in the water because this band goes way beyond Brutal. I don’t think Secret Society will remain a secret much longer!"
