SECTORIAL recently unleashed their third full-length entitled “VYR” via Noizr Productions on November 9th, 2018 to follow their sophomore release “We Are The Titan’s Rising Ashes”(2015), which won two BUMA awards for “Best Metal Video” (Tree Eater) and “Best Metal Album”.
“VYR” captures the band’s advancement in both musicianship and sound, every instrument, every bit of music on this release has its own story. Featuring 12 brutal tracks mixed and mastered by Warkhoros, the album showcases an assault of diversity, from intense blast-beats to acoustic compositions to using different ethnic instruments such as drymba/munnharpe, jouhikko, bukkehorn, flutes, duda, and trembita.
The band comments:
“Capricious and unpredictable streams of life, violent waves and the hypnotic blue of the the universe’s depths… an element that can withstand anything that will happen on the way… a bottomless stellar sky, reflected on a calm mirrored surface that in an instant turns into an incredible dance of the wind and drops, and spins in a gigantic powerful VYR.”
