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.
