Biography

Atlanta, Georgia, United States (2002 – present)

Die Sektor is a band founded in 2002 from Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Their music is categorized as / and , but takes an influence from a variety of sources including , , and 80’s .

2002-2005 “Scraping the Flesh” and Reformation

Die Sektor began when longtime friends Scott Denman and Daniel Gant began experimenting with electronic music under various names. Together they produced several tracks and sent them to friends and put them on soulseek. Eventually John Gerteisen and Alan Smith, who were in the band Auspex at the time, heard the tracks and convinced Scott and Daniel that they could help Die Sektor get a better sound if they came to Starke to produce their demo in the Auspex studio.

On January 2, 2004 Daniel and Scott drove to Starke to work on what would later become “Scraping the Flesh.” In a marathon recording session lasting a little over 48 hours they recorded 4 tracks, “Motionless,” “Lust Angel,” “Scraping Flesh,” and “Electronic Saviour,” with Alan, John, and Scott doing the recording and mixing while Daniel finished up the lyrics and performed the screaming. “Electronic Saviour,” would not make it onto the demo and became available as a download only.

A month later Daniel and Scott returned to Starke for another marathon recording session, this time recording “Pain Killer,” and “Your Deception.” Alan and John had been interested in the German label NoiTekk for their own project, Auspex, and advised Scott and Daniel to send Noitekk a copy of “Scraping the Flesh” Two weeks later Die Sektor was signed to Noitekk.

    "(-)existence" is absolutely amazing! Definitely their best album since "To Be Fed Upon".

    I was skeptical when you guys started progressing on the Applied Structure album, wasn't so keen on Final Electro Solution...but Existence is a nice balance of dark electro and industrial rock.

    I'm very satisfied with the album, especially with refreshing the trance roots. It doesn't move me deeply yet, but I expect this soon. They seem to never disappoint.

    I'd say changed. I was very skeptical towards ASIAV and TFES in the beginning sounded like a disaster to me. Thankfully I got used to the new direction, TFES became my favourite album of 2012 and by the way I got into all tracks from ASIAV. I may say I'm a fan of all their music, including demos compilation. Still, my favourite release remains Scraping the Flesh, to my mind it has even better moments than TBFU.
